    W211 Door mirror LED Indicators

    Thanks Alps, not too painful pricewise,,, my challenge is that I cannot figure out how to remove the cover,,, it pivots on the base on the facelift 08 model rather than hinging from the side like my 55 model, can't find a thread here that shows how it comes off.

Think my fogs must be badly adjusted as...

On inspecton of the pumps/valves after this volume of usage...

    Tow bar

    Griffin 5, can't help you with specific fitting to your model, but can recommend Towsure. I have an aversion to anyone messing with my car... including Mercedes dealers - especially a particular Dublin dealer who trashed the interior. I have just fitted a Brinkmatic Mirage to my 04 w211 320CDI...
