Question 400E Drivers side mirror handle broken - HELP

Well after getting the car back from the $1K timing chain noise ($13 oil pump valve seat "O" ring) the drivers side mirror adjustment handle was broken How do you prove they did it Anyway, it's the little pop-metal arm that connects the handle going to the guts of the mirror. No replacement part, you have to buy a whole new mirror body (insides) at $179

Does anyone know:
1. How to remove the mirror
2. How to get the outer housing off (painted part)
3. Where I can get a replacement cheaper than the dealer
4. Anyone have a spare

Thanks > BOBB

Suggest, e-mailing, calling or even better stopping by Silver Star Recycling, Ranch Cordova, CA. (

They were really reasonably priced, friendly and professional when I stopped by for a part (even let me see the car, eye and choose my parts too (they dismantled and cleaned the part), however, on the phone prior to my visit- they were a tad less helpful (probably get tons of calls from all over). Even got an "exchange" warranty on the part (12 mos?)

Good luck
