    Hi Guys.
    I have a C220 CDI Auto (W203) 2001.
    I have a problem with the passenger side mirror.

    It moves out and up, but not down and in.

    I did have a garage replace the mirror, but that didnt resolve the issue.
    What could it be?

    It will most probably be broken wires where the mirror pivots.

    I had the indicator in the mirror stop working for this occasion. Just remove the mirror glass find the broken wires and re solder some good wire in and shrink wrap/tape up.

    Thanks for your response. The garage did replace the whole mirror, but it didnt resolve the issue. COuld it be the mirror control unit?

    It is possible, but I would check for broken wiring first, it will be the cheapest and easiest fix.

    I think there is a guide in the DIY for this repair on the W211. The 203 wing mirror is a very similar beast. Once you have released the mirror glass all will become clear.

    W211 wing mirror DIY guide?

    Hello, I have the same issue with my 211 and suspect it is broken wiring. Could you kindly let me know where I can find the DIY guide for opening up and accessing the wiring of the wing mirror? Thanks, Vin
