Mercedes Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, Someone broke my offside door mirror, breaking indicator lamp and mirror. c180 kompressor, avantgarde w203 / 2006. Electric folding door mirror with autodimming.Mirror part number 41-3133-470. How do I get the outer cover off? How do I get to the indicator bulb unit? How do I put the new mirror into the housing.There is a spring clip on the back of the mirror. Should this be in place first before I seat the mirror or do I seat the mirror then replace the clip? Really appreciate your help on this one Thanks, Peter
Hello,First you need to remove the mirror outside trim
Click here for the instructions
Does it just push off?
The retaining clamp must be pushed back. Check the instructions i sent you earlier
Just checked instructions - got it
No problem, once the trim is off, the mirror retaining spring is easily removed and glass can be easily pryed off
excellent , thanks. What about getting to the indicator bulb?
You will see the screws on the inside of the removed trim
Great. Do you know the part number for the bulb unit for this model by any chance?
It's a piece of cake once the outer cover is off
i need the VIN to help you with the indicator part number
Once i replace the bulb does the outer slip back in easily or should I be aware of how to reset the clip to secure it in place?
Clip has to be released back with a screwdriver, and then you just slide the cover on carefully until the indicator plug and the clip engage
No worries with the part number. Once i get the old one out I can check the number on the old one. Thats really helpful. Will give it a go in daylight! Thanks for your help Stan, really appreciated
Glad to help Peter.
