SOURCE: how do i remove and replace the driver's side mirror?

If the metal pivot arm is not broken you can just replace the glass and plastic housing. To remove the glass you tilt the glass down towards the floor and use a wide plastic or wood bladed object to prise from behind, the glass should pop off from its clips. Remember to catch it if its not damaged. To remove the housing once the glass is out you need to look underneath the mirror unit, there you will find a small plastic bung, gently prise it out and then use a long small flat bladed screwdriver straight up inside the hole and lever towards the front of the car whilst lifting straight up on the plastic housing, this should then lift off. To replace just slot the new housing on and click into place then fit the glass back, remember to connect the wires first if it is a heated glass.
If the metal pivot arm is broken then you will find the remaining screws behind the plastic trim inside the vehicle.

SOURCE: remove a wing mirror cover to fit indicator lens

If you have electric folding mirrors fold them in, if not fold the mirror back against the spring (not easy as it is quite strong). Looking from the front, to the mirror cover side of the spindle on which the mirror pivots if you pull it forward, you will see the end of the main mirror body which has a groove it it. At the end of the groove there is a springclip which can prised up using a flat bladed screwdriver. It is easiest to place the blade under the clip and twist the clip to release it. Once fully released the cover can then be withdrawn. Refitting is the reverse of the above but if the cover does not automatically clip in place you may have to force it back with the screwdriver.

1984 mercedes 300d headlights always on high

Well, that's pretty dangerous! I wouldn't want to ride with you at night. I'd look over and see your way of not blinding on-coming drivers, one hand on the wheel and one holding some lever to keep your lights on dim, and I'd start freaking, man, and probably blathering something like, ya know if you tried a NEW DIMMER SWITCH for this old car, I bet it would fix that problem. Can I get off here? Thank you. I can imagine there is a wide source of places you could find new parts for the mercedes, all kinds of multi-function or dimmer switches, and everything else to go another 30 years, lol.

Mercedes electric front mirrors

Hi Gary, The cover is levered upwards (very gently) with a flat screw driver. Try from the front and rear to find out which side has least resistance. I believe you can solder the cable connections but they rarely need soldering as the unit uses a plug and socket. The problem will probably be inside the switch. Regards John

Need to tighten rear view mirror of 1997 Mercedes SL 500. It does not firmly stay positioned, it moves too freely. Failed safety inspection. New one cost $900 from dealer, can find used parts

OK what I put here is for the E class Mercedes of the same era. Generally Mercedes shares build concepts and ideas across different classes of car. The mirror assembly consists of a mirror frame socket fitted to ball on the end of a mount arm. If the mount on the SL is the same then the idea is to stop the mirror from moving freely on the ball. It should be possible to slip the end of a clothing pin(s) between the ball, which is steel, and the socket, which is plastic. Force it gently in and check for the degree of play in the mirror. Once the mirror is stiff clip the protruding remaining length of pin(s) away to keep things looking tidy. Crude, effective but, above all, much cheaper than $900
