Is there any way to fix this or is it junk? Question two ... how do you swap the mirror without ruining your headliner and windshield :)

Basically top half shows clear, bottom half show dark electrolyte.

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.

Thanks!

I figured it was toast, just going out on a limb. Found some new ones on ebay for 1/2 dealer cost. I need to change it its really annoying.

Funny, the dealer I bought from suggested a 3rd party mirror for $20, said it would be wider and you can see more :) LoL

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

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?

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.

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.

Where is this video you speak of Len? I'm not sure what to twist.
