    On my ML270 CDi the side door mirrors make a knocking knows when they close. The noise is cause by the mirrors trying to close after they have reached the closed position.

    Can anyone advise me what to do?

    All I can do is to send out the instructions for removing the covers or the complete mirror,,often on the 163 the main mirror chassis gets damaged

    Hi all,

    Yes I have the same problem, you will probably find that the stopper located at the top of the frame has been broken.....i.e. allowing the mirror to go further and then click against the car as it cant go any further.

    If the covers have not been off before, you may need to apply a little bit of pressure. They just slide on and off via a clip.

    That part is small and hard to repair; you could just press the opening button when the mirrors get close to stop them.

    If you’re daring you could try and repair the frame; however you need to be sure that you can put it back together. It may be a wiser move to buy another frame and look around for the best price and ensure that you have the part number cross - referenced to your vehicle as there are different part numbers for the mirror frames. It would be terrible if you have an auto-dimming mirror and you bought a non auto - dimming mirror.

    Thanks
