    All,

    When I bought my W220 it had a non-MB drivers wing mirror, non heated and non dipping. The spec on the car has a dipping heated mirror so I bought one 2nd hand of eBay. It looked fine and I fitted it. It worked ok for a day and then overnight it is like the oil inside has crazed. It looks like the mirror has been broken, but it clearly hasn't and it was inside our locked gates overnight.

    Any idea what could have caused this and is there any way of re-furbing it as it's in perfect nick apart for this. Also, I've left it off the car for about 2 months and it's got better but not fully recovered?

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks,

    A

    I'd track down another one, supposedly if the oil escapes it eats your paintwork.
