If your console that protects the control monitor or the control monitor itself is giving you trouble this article will show you how to remove them. The control monitor is a slick piece of engineering. Despite how hi-tech it looks, it is very easy to remove.

The control monitor (red arrow) is a slick piece of engineering.

The control monitor (red arrow) is a slick piece of engineering. Despite how hi-tech it looks it is very easy to remove. You will need to remove the center vents (yellow arrow) before you can remove the monitor and its console.

If you are planning on working on the interior of your Mercedes a good tool to own is the Mercedes 140-589-02-33-00.
Figure 2

If you are planning on working on the interior of your Mercedes a good tool to own is the Mercedes 140-589-02-33-00. While you can make your own this tool is indispensable for removing vents, ducts gauge clusters etc. If you would like to make your own tool take a piece of sturdy metal at least six inches long and bend one end 90 degrees leaving approximately 5mm on the bent end. You are going to need to pull pretty hard on the tool so make some sort of handle on the other end.

You will need to remove the center vents to remove the control monitor.
Figure 3

You will need to remove the center vents to remove the control monitor. Begin by opening the face plate. There are two access holes for the tool on the top of the center vent (red arrows). On some models these will be covered with small rubber plugs. Just remove them.

Insert your tool into the access holes and turn them 45 degrees so they are facing downward (red arrow).

Insert your tool into the access holes and turn them 45 degrees so they are facing downward (red arrow).

With both tools securely seated, pull back and slightly up (red arrows).
Figure 5

With both tools securely seated, pull back and slightly up (red arrows). Again it is important that the tool is properly seated before pulling. Otherwise, you can really damage the vent.

Once the vents release past the clips you can remove the vents housing by hand.

You can hang the vents and housing down in front of the stereo panel to remove the monitor but I recommend removing it completely so you do not scratch it or the center console.

Turn the vent over and release the two tabs on the electrical connections (red arrows).
Figure 8

Turn the vent over and release the two tabs on the electrical connections (red arrows). Remember when installing to run this wiring connection down through the top of the vent housing.

With the center vents removed use a T20 Torx and remove the two screws at the bottom of the control monitor housing (red arrows).

Close the lid on the front and pull forward while lifting (red arrows) the housing.
Figure 10

Close the lid on the front and pull forward while lifting (red arrows) the housing. It will slip from the dash.

There are three cables attached to the back of the unit.
Figure 11

There are three cables attached to the back of the unit. There is not a lot of room to work so do not try and pull the unit all the way out.

Turn the unit sideways.
Figure 12

Turn the unit sideways. This will give you access to the back of the monitor and the plugs. Release the tabs on two of the electrical connections (red arrows), and pull them out from their sockets. The central plug is metal and sits quite firmly in the unit (yellow arrow).

Gently wiggle and pull this connection from the back of the monitor.
Figure 13

Gently wiggle and pull this connection from the back of the monitor. You do NOT want to damage this connection. Installation is the reverse of removal.
