Hello, does anyone know where the fuse box location is, on the 2006 CLK 500?I looked around and did not see it. I searched the forums and all I found was that on the older models, it was somewhere around the drivers area. My cigarette lighter stopped working, so I assume its a blown fuse.

Thanks, but I don't smoke: never have. I just need the cigarette lighter to charge my cell phone, that keeps getting depleted before I arrive back home. Is the fuse panel to the left of the steering wheel, on the side where the door closes? I see something there that looks like a panel. But I thought I would ask before I start prying things loose, ha. I just put new sheepskin covers on the seats and to do that you need to remove the headrests. I could not get them to come out myself, so the dealer did it for me and slipped the seat covers over them, so I could finish the installation myself. I didn't want to ruin the electric headrests by pulling them so hard upward to get them out. I tried and they woud not move past a point. Better safe than sorry. Now, I need to figure out how to get the engine oil out myself. I heard the dealers use a machine to suck it out through some port with a red cap. Exactly how does an owner change the oil himself?
there is a few locations for fuses first off look at the hand book you got , second try calling the service center in new jersey
as far as changing the oil yes the red cap at the back of the engine is where the dirty oil is suck up through this tube
i have found a piece of 5/15 "od tube fits perfectly the sucking part is trick as i have tried fuel pumps and has not worked , im looking into a siphon hand pump but mercedes is not the only mfg doing this now
it takes 7.5 qts of 0-40 mobol 1 ONLY the filter is a breeze to change but buy the 25- oil change fitting and buy the filter its still cheaper than the 250- service . these cars are designed to run a long time , most of all your problems will be electrical there is about 25 computers on this car . is a badass machine . there is a comp. for each door , one for suspension /front / rear / one for traction control . etc etc
there is a oil drain plug under neath but is hard to find and you have to remove all the plastic panells under the car still its not too bad to work on .
off the top of my head the main fuse box is located under the hood on the drivers side towards the rear under a black cover. there is probably another box but i cant remeber its location right now, sorry.
