    The wing mirror folding mechanism stopped working a while ago and I believe the motor has packed in. I managed to source a repair kit from Mercedes so now I'm looking for instructions on how to remove my current wing mirror assembly to replace the motor. Thankyou

    The mirror glass and backing clip off of the motor.
    Then on the outside edge there is a black clip in cover.
    Once these are off all the screws you need to nemove are visible and it should be self explanatory.
    The above took me a good hour to work out one day lol.

    Hope it helps.

    sorry to hijack the thread but my passenger side mirror isn't folding at all, so sounds like the motor has gone completely. i thought i might be lumbered with a new unit from mercedes but didn't realise you could just buy the motor, any chance you have the part number? thanks a lot, Rob

    Have you checked that the wiring hasn't broken?

    There are 4 clips round the edge of the mirror ease these off one at a time and the mirror comes off easy. Took me ages to work it putative first :)

    As said there are 4 clips around the mirror which can be released with a screw driver.
    My drivers' mirror has lost the top half of its lacquer?, so I bought a replacement mirror off the bay for £12. Only trouble is it does not have the heated mirror fittings, so if I fit it will the folding mech. still work?

    This gives you a fair idea how its done.
    No need to remove the glass. Just tilt it in to avoid the cover when it slides off.

    No. You need to follow the instructions that have already been posted. I did mine this week. Here's a photo with the mirror and internal clip already removed.

    my mirror is different , I am not home yet to check. But it’s auto folding and sits on a smaller arm
    Protruding from the door then my mirror is mounted on the arm
    , not directly to the door.
    I might be wrong ,but 90% sure it’s not as in photos.
    Will see once I am in tomorrow.
