How do I change the Drivers side Turn signal bulb in the mirror?
Actually the first answer was right. On my 2007 Sprinter chassis, the side mirrors have an upper flat mirror and a lower convex mirror. The upper mirror comes off exactly as described; by tilting it so that it faces down, and then gently lifting it from the top to slide it off the track. (On my sprinter the mirrors are heated, so there are wires that remain attached when you slide it off.
This reveals three screws that you can get at with a torex screw driver without needing any flexible shafts etc. It appears that there is a fourth screw or clip of some sort on the bottom, but I was not able to figure out how to get the bottom convex mirror off to get at it. That would enable the removal of the full shell.
Even without that bottom screw I was able to flex the shell enough to get the turn signal lens assembly out. But removing it entirely requires reaching in with needle nosed pliers and rotating the bulb assembly a quarter turn, and then reversing the whole assembly to get it back. In my case I was replacing the turn signal lens, but it should work the same for replacing the bulb. Good luck.
