    Hi,
    Smacked the left-hand/passenger wing mirror off the gate post yesterday. :(
    The clear plastic 'lens' that covers the indicator lamp LEDs is smashed but the main housing of the mirror unit seems fine.
    Can anyone confirm whether or not the 'lens' is replaceable on its own or do I have to buy a whole mirror unit?
    I've an '03 W211 E-class. It's got the spring-loaded mirrors that do not manually fold or electrically fold. (If you're confused by that, see this thread.)
    Would appreciate the advice.
    Tx,
    Ken.

    The led indicator lens (built into the door miror housing) is available separately and cost me £32 for my ml.

    Hi Malcolm,
    Yes, would be great if you could send on the details of the steps involved. I'm presuming it's straightforward (i.e. I can get the job done with an angle grinder, an oxyacetylene torch, a 14 lb hammer and some fine emery paper!) LOL

    Thanks for your help,
    Ken.

    In the end, I got it replaced at my MB dealer's workshop.
    They quoted me €45 for the part, and a total price, including fitting of €60.
    I didn't really have the time to tackle it myself, so I sent the car in.

    When they presented me with the invoice, it was for €45. Don't know whether they forgot to add in the labour, or just did the job for me for free (I have my car serviced there when needed, so maybe they were being nice to me to keep me coming back).

    In any case, job is done, and for not too much money either. Thanks for the help.

    Give MB Grangemouth a call and they will supply the correct mirror indicator (you didn't mention n/s or o/s) and deliver next day.
    I bought one and it was around £30
