I read an article on you tube on how to remove and replace my rear view mirror.
I was able to get a replacement mirror from a Mercedes dismantler, He was suppose to show me how to remove the
mirror but his employee did the job before we got there.
He said that you grab the mirror and with a quick snap side to side it'll pop off, the trouble I encountered was the
base along with the mirror came out.
I reattached the base and using plyers carefully squeezed the spring together trying to wedge something between the spring
and and bracket to keep the spring in place to slip the mirror into the bracket. After futile attempts decided to take a brake hoping
that someone might know if Mercedes has a special tool for this.
I was told that I was to pop it in place using force but trying to remove the old mirror to much force removed the bracket as well.
I appreciate any suggestion.
