Mercedes-Benz S430: HOW DO I INSTALL PASSENGER SIDE MIRROR

Resolved Question:

HOW DO I INSTALL PASSENGER SIDE MIRROR ON A 2001 S430. I BOUGHT AN ORIGINAL REPLACEMENT MIRROR BUT IT DOES NOT APPEAR TO MATCH THE PATTERN OF THE RECEIVING DISK THAT ATTACHES TO THE MOTOR. AND I SEE NO PURPOSE FOR THIS TENSION TYPE WIRE OR CLIP ON THE BACK OF THE MIRROR. WHAT IS IT SUPPOSED TO DO. THX

Diagnostics Engineer :

Hello,
The wire, which you are talking about is a retaining spring. It must be installed after the mirror was clipped in the drive motor.

Diagnostics Engineer :

there are 2 different versions of the glasses, so it seems you got the incorrect one.

Diagnostics Engineer :
