I have followed the How To guide to remove a W202 mirror and checked the video on You Tube but the inside of a folding mirror is different.

Can anyone help? I can see a spring/clip but it makes no difference if I prise it.

Hi,
From memory, the spring clip is held in place at its centre, you need to push a screwdriver blade aginst the centre of the clip, levering the clip towards the car at the same time to release.
To remove the mirrors from the car you do not have to remove the mirror cover, just fold the mirrors in.

The mirror covers can be difficult to remove and need a little bit of wiggling..... they do slide off when it is free of the spring/catch...... But as Andy said as you have folding you could remove the mirror without removing the cover and then take it off later.
