Yes the mirrors are hinged so you can flod them against the car to keep from breaking them while being washed in an automated machine.

Has it ocurred to you that your wing mirrors are not the electrically folding type, most are not. The switch on the drivers arm rest for adjusting the mirrrors will have a separate position for folding if yours fold. The resistance to fold by hand is very stiff as you have to overcome the spring tension, even when folded by hand they do not fold as flat as you might think.
I purchased a 2006 Golf 5 GT Tdi last year it had £5000 worth of factory fitted options but did not have electrically folding door mirrors - hope this helps.

Wing_Mirror_Problems


Shaun,
I've never had to disassemble a Jeep power mirror. One of two possible problems here. Depends on how Jeep conveys the power to the "wing". If they use brushes and contacts, it may just be that the brushes got dirty when you folded it in [onto a corroded contact area] If this is the case, spray some penetrating oil into the gap between the wing and the base. Then fold and unfold the wing several times to clean the contact. Make sure that you have the wing pulled all the way out. There should be a detent that you can feel.
If they use a wiring harness going up all the way inside the wing, one of the wires has broken. you would need to remove the mirror, disassemble it and repair the damaged wiring.

There is a special paste you can get from any Mercedes dealer to apply to the mirror folding mechanism. This is a well known problem that Mercedes issued a service bulletin about. Just describe the problem to any dealer and ask them if they could get you the appropriate paste for you.

Remove a wing mirror cover to fit indicator lens on the wing mirror for a mercedes c220 cdi 2003.


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 Once fully released the cover can then be withdrawn.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.

Removal of the mirrors plastic body from the truck


I did the same thing with my car. there is a plastic cover inside the door where the mirror is. Pop off the cap and you can then take off the mirror. ONly problem is you can not change just the mirror you have to replace the body too. At least thats the way it was on my car. Dealer part was $137 at the time and it wont be painted.
