Thanks, I'll check them out. I was also going to try used parts as this is a pretty old car. Anyone have a good tip on MB used parts dealer in US/Canada?Hi ,Do the search , there is a company that repair the mirror , belive they are in Michigan. They send you a repaired unit and you send them yours. I belive it was about $100.00
Good point, I was thinking the same thing. I checked with that company linked here and they don't have any exchange units but will repair mine by swapping out the glass if I send it in and wait. They cautioned they might break the housing tho. I found new ones OEM online for $200 so I might just go that route. The repair was around 140 I think incl canada shipping. I'm impressed that they actually fix them.Very good chance that a used mirror will be getting close to what you are experiencing now. For $100 I think you are better off getting a "new" exchange one.
Where is this video you speak of Len? I'm not sure what to twist.I would say that it's trash. Do a search - lots of good info including videos on removing and installing the mirror. It's just a twist off/twist on operation, but it helps to watch the video first, so you see how it works.
