Re: '90 200 console switches

You mean the rear fog light? Or the front fog light?
There should be bulbs inside both switches that light
up indicators when the switches are "on". There is a
spearate bulb to just illuminate the switches so you
can see where they are.

Hmmmm, wait for the Bentley.

These burn out with fristrating regularity. On my '89, half are
burned out. On Angela's '90, about a quarter.

They snap up. On some, the faceplate snaps off first. But a little
pull with a small screwdriver should do the job.
