    Hello!
    It have came water inside the headlights on my MB W210 from 1997.
    What is the easiest way to open up the glass and dry the water away?
    It looks like it is small pins, but I am a little afriad for destroy the light, so I hope that someone of you know how to do it :)

    And the plastic cover that should be over the left mirror have fall of. I am not really sure how, beacuse it was on place with steel-wire when I got it the car. It looks like it is two metal things that should hold it, but it won't stay on it's place when I try to pull it over the mirror glass/mechanism.
    It is possible that the mirror has got a big slam, so it is not totaly straight.

    It there any trick to pull mirror cover back? or does anyone have a photo of how a straight mirror mechanism looks like?

    I would be very happy if someone could help me :)

    There are 2 lugs that go under a wire clip on the mirror,if the wire is bent (doubtful) or the lugs missing it will not hold, there are 2 types of mirror, could it be the wrong one

    The bumper has to come off to get to the headlamp
