Hi & Welcome,

Either a wire has broken (does it fold from the button?) or it could require lubrication. PTFE spray is very good for the lubrication side. Have you tried "helping" the mirror when you press the button to lock the car?

There is a guide in the DIY section for a wing mirror removal and wire repair.

As blobcat really,,if you need any info on getting yours apart as they are different to those in the link, then please ask, DIY is fine for fixing them if a wire is broken

Yes, you will have to reset the windows, steering angle sensor and no dout a few other bits depending on the spec of your CLK!!

No harm at all. when you charge the battery,take the top of the charge off with something connected like a tyre pump or bulb, then connect up to the car, though the battery may hold up the 3 months disconnected.

You will have to re set the windows and ESP and that is easy
