The instrument cluster on my 2002 S430 has stopped lighting up and the dealer is telling me it was replaced in September 27th 2006. The recall notice was mailed out on Sept 29th 2006. I suspect that it was replaced with the same unit that was recalled. So I am wondering can you tell the year of manufacture by the numbers on the sticker attached to the cluster. Or what numbers should appear on the cluster if it was replaced due to the recall. Thanks

There may be a serial number or production date on the cluster itself once it was removed but the numbers silk screened onto the instrument face probably are all the same.Perhaps your Mercedes parts department would know.
