Having problems with your 1998 Mercedes-Benz C-Class ?

Passenger side mirror

\015 The motor in mine stopped adjusting the mirror correctly (still works, just only in two directions). \302\240How can I get at the motor and other guts to replace or fix?\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 19-03-2018

Yea. both my mirrors started flopping around like they were not latched or something..
\015\012i finally took them apart like you said.. (the screw driver and the wire retainer clips.. )
\015\012then i discovered the spring that holds it in place hooks on to a spring hook flange tine casted into the mechanism's frame structure. and that tine was bent over and cracked on both sides.
\015\012when i bent it back with the screwdriver, i discovered it was an amazingly hard metal alloy, but it was an engineering failure so i wasn't going to put it back together in that condition.
\015\012 so i broke the tine completely off
then i wrapped a coat hanger wire around the end of the structure and extended a loop of coat hanger wire into the spring well and hooked the spring to it. i'm not sure if that's the problem you are having but i wanted to post the solution i am trying to at least give people an idea or 2 .. i feel confident that it will hold at least till the hook on the other part of the mirror frame cracks off the same way. i guess it was a bad batch of metal. that metal was hard
Figured it out.  There is a clip on the car end of the mirror assembly that holds the housing on.  Use a screwdriver to slide the clip up and voila! the housing slides right off giving access to the inner workings and allowing you to easily take the assembly off the car.
