What is the procedure to remove the interior rear view mirror on a Mercedes C230 2007 model?The Mercedes mirror can be easily removed once the paneling is off. This is done by undoing the paneling around the mirror with the help of a flat blade tool. This tool can help release the four catches (two in front and two at the rear) of the overhead control panel. This panel is held in position with clips. These clips can be pushed in with a flat blade tool. The panel can be pried out carefully till where the clips are visible. This will release the complete overhead control panel and pop it loose. Once this is done the mirror pulls down out of its socket. There are no clamps or screws which hold it in position and it is only tension holding it in place. Below is a summary of the steps involved:
1. The overhead control panel module needs to be un-clipped
2. The internal rear view mirror is held in position through spring tension and should be pulled down to one side
3. The connector should be disconnected from the overhead control panel module
4. The internal rearview mirror can be removed
5. While installing the spring bolt should be pressed together with pliers to allow the retainers to catch. Installation is the reverse order of the removal.

Is it possible for an automatic fold side view Mercedes mirror (ML SUV) to be damaged if operated manually?Damage is likely if the Mercedes mirror has been forced too far. If it is the case, the complete housing would need to be replaced. Typically Mercedes mirror parts are not separately available for the folding mirror as it is one complete unit. The only Mercedes mirror parts which are separately available are the mirror casing, glass and glass adjustment motor. If it has been pulled out normally, following the action of folding it out and inside again will allow the motor to reset. This will restore normal operation of the Mercedes Benz mirror. In future, ensure that the mirror should fold back out against its stop and should be firm when fully out.
How can the C220 Mercedes mirror indicator bulbs be changed?Typically Mercedes mirror lamps are one complete unit because they are LED’s. The mirror should be folded in and from the front while looking towards the back, a hole will be visible. A flat blade screwdriver should be inserted through to pry the clip towards the car. This will cause the cover to slide off providing access to the lamp’s retaining screws.
