Mercedes-Benz W124 (1986-95)

You will need to remove the kick panels in your W124 to get access to several components including the brake light switch and brake booster to name but two. There is a kick panel on both the driver and passenger side and both are easy to remove. If your vehicle is getting on in the years be careful when bending the plastic clips to remove the panel so you don't break one.

Driver Side - Begin by removing any carpets including the big heavy foam floor piece (red arrow).
