hey team i am looking for A17181014179051 as my mirror has some weird bubbles blisters in it..
I initially have thought i had not cleaned the mirror but it appears to be in the glass so i think just replacing the mirror will do.
UNLESS some one has a suggestion on ow to repair this

i rang my local dealership and for a lovely 'trade price' of $1230 AUD i was umm i think i can put up with my mirror..

i did an eBay search and nothing, a google search did the same unless i want to send my credit card details to a Russian parts supplier with a 40 day delivery time

i hope you guys can help
many thanks in advance
happy 2020

sounds like the Lcd mirror glass is breaking down ....
you may be able to find just the glass itself or replace with a second hand unit much cheaper option ebay is your best bet .

or last resort replace with a mercedes basic mirror unit .

i replaced mine with Auto dimming but kept my old basic mirror unit just incase as i knew they are expensive .

Do not know about MB but on other makes the sensor hole in not there on non dimming mirrors as it would serve no purpose and just increase cost of production.

Always amaes me how these companies come up with the cost of some parts and here is an example.

Hi that is the Auto Dimming sensor it is not there on a basic mirror unit

A basic mirror unit will just be a mirror with of course maunaul flip toggle under unit you may get one with under lights on unit .

Just a note or two on auto dimming mirrors.

The fluid inside is corrosive (Alkaline I believe).
They can be restored (at least I have seen such in USA, as for NZ, UK I can't be sure).

If memory serves, you send them your unit and they send you a repaired unit in return.

Not going to have many SLKs in breakers yards there, but worth a search.
