Have a 2008 CL63 AMG. The passenger side mirror LED signal

Customer Question

Have a 2008 CL63 AMG. The passenger side mirror LED signal indicator is broke so I got a replacement. Cant seem to find out how to pop the mirror housing off to replace the LED piece. Most videos show a clip inside the housing under the mirror to push up on, this mirror doesn't seem to have anything like that

While Im an engineer, and the schematic and instructions are complete, they really don't show the steps visually or explain what to do exactly. Can you elaborate?

Were you able to get the mirror glass off at all?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Not sure where to start with that....
Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.

O.k.,below is a little more info on how the glass is removed.See if this helps as this is the first step to gaining access to dissasemble the mirror to replace the light assembly.They want you to use a special tool plastic wedge that doesn't damage the plastic but you can use whichever tool works best for you here.You should be able to carefully and slowly pry/press of the glass from the mirror motor itself.
