84 300D Dim Dash lights

Just got my first MB. A 84 300D I like it and am enjoying the restoration. The dash lights are very dim. Is there a switch to make them brighter? If not I may have a few Bulbs burnt out.
Thanks

How do I get the instrument cluster out to change the bulbs?

For removing the cluster you need a special tool from the dealer. It costs about $30. As for the dash lights, to turn them up you need to turn the button where you reset your tripodometer. just turn, dont push.

I have an '83 300D. I removed the instrument cluster by unscrewing the panel under the steering wheel. Then I reached up and pushed on the back and wiggled it until it popped out. My car has the bulbs behind the two black little knobs that can be changed.
