Help Needed : Repairing Side View Mirror : 2003 SLK230

Greeting fellow Benz enthusiast!

While washing my side view mirror on my 2003 SLK230 , I applied too much pressure on the glass and seemed to broken the mechanism that moves the glass left & right. I can still go up & down.

Can someone explain how to properly dissassemble this so I can see what is required to repair it?

Hopefully I just popped something loose and didn't break any gears or linkage.

If you move the mirror all the way down, you may be able to see the little ball stud that pops into the back of the mirror glass that rotates in and out to make the glass move.

Sometimes you can flex the mirror too far that the ball pops out of the hole and you can sometimes get away with popping it back in by pushing the mirror glass to blindly snap it into place.

It may take some finagling and several attempts, but you may have to remove the housing if you can't get it the easy way.

Thanks for the tip! Will investigate tomorrow!

If I have to remove the housing , is there a procedure you can recommend?
