    2007 W211 Mirror Indicator Replacement

    Hi, I've got hold of a new indicator unit from Mercedes and at the moment can't figure out how to take the mirror apart in order to fit it. Does anyone have any ideas? All the instructions I seem to find are for the earlier style W211 mirrors. Mine are as pictured below. Cheers

    What on a W124?? how? you'd have to chop a hole in the inner arch and cut the drive shaft in half to get any sort of room around the spring :confused:

    Cheers, I appreciate the response. To correct your misinformation again tho: No they won't. They DO NOT physically fit in the space! Just try it for youself and you will see. thanks for the link :) It looks like thats the way i'll have to do it, with no compressors at all. But if anyone else...

    coil springs

    To solve the argument, I too thought "pah, what do they know" when reading all the posts about how you can't use normal external spring compressors. I am a competent mechanic and work with several million £ setups and have a 'good' range of skills. I have been there and tried and IT CANNOT BE...

    I found his posts about it but he's selling/sold them. Last month he said he was going to ebay them but didn't put a link to it or any info like item No. :( All i can find is general hire places like HSS but they don't do stuff as specialised as this. I've heard of people hiring normal...

    coil springs

    Does anyone know where i can hire the Mercedes style spring compressor from? I'm in Guildford (S/E). I got myself a set of slightly lower springs and judt went to fit them but my normal spring compressors don't fit at all. I know they are VERY expensive to buy (£800ish) so i'm not up for that.

    Engine rebuilds?

    It's probably just a head gasket, but will only know by taking the head off and having a look. Fixing that is a few hundred pounds. I thought the bottom ends go on for ever.

    Sounds like the motor arm has popped out off the runner on the bottom of the window or it could be a stripped motor gear. You will need to pull off the the door card and have look in side the door, the problem should be obvoius once you can see in side. If a new motor assembly is needed...

    Whilst looking for a cheapo run about on ebay I spied a skoda for 99p, but it has absolutly no description. I guessed that was because it was a skoda so he didn't feel he could really say anymore, cos at the end of the day it still a skoda, so why bother. But looking at the sellers other items...
