How Do Technicians Install the Mercedes-Benz Illuminated Star?

Generally, installation of the Mercedes-Benz light-up emblem takes about one to two hours. It’s best to have professionals handle this type of service because installing the star involves routing its electrical harness to the ground terminal of the engine bay, along with a few other steps. The process takes time, and it’s easy to misinterpret an online DIY guide. Installation involves these steps:

  • Turn the Three-Pointed Star emblem on the grille counterclockwise to release it.
  • Remove the fuse/relay module, and drill a hole in the fuse box.
  • Secure the wire harness to the fuse/relay module.
  • Connect the wire harness.
  • Place the emblem back in its slot, and turn clockwise.
  • Test the new Mercedes-Benz illuminated star.
