Fixed a sideview mirror on a Mercedes?

January 3rd, 2011 · No Comments

I hit a pole backing up in my tight apartment garage and while the outside of my mirror broke my actual mirror just popped out. I can pop it back in with trial and error but if i shut my door too hard it pops out again. It’s still connected to string. Please tell me I don’t have to go to the dealer!

- It sounds like you’ll need the entire mirror assembly. There are most likely brackets that have broken off. Go to the dealer if you want to get ripped off. Do a little legwork yourself and save a lot of money. Check eBay for a replacement mirror assembly. You can also searching the classifieds section of for a used mirro assembly. If you’re lucky, you’ll find one that’s the same color as your car. If not, you can have it painted. If you find one that’s already your car color, a glass shop can install it. If it’s not your body color, a body shop will have to paint it and they can also install it.
- On the back side of the glass there should be a little metal bar at the top with like a u shape on it,if this is missing a new mirror is needed. Place the mirror in place and once all the clips are back in, (unless these little black clips are broken it will not hold,and a new one will be needed once again.)
This bar needs to be hooked over last with a little screwdriver.
