    Not done a CLK but we did do one on the 124. It just required a live supply and earth. We took the feed for the live from the cigarette lighter as then only on with the ignition. Would have been better to get the feed from the light switch but did not feel brave enough to do this.

    Hi bud,
    Provided you have bought the correct mirror, it will be just plug and play.
    The plug on the Auto-Dim mirror loom plugs straight into the overhead light console.
