'97 E420 drivers side mirror problem

My driver's side mirror is sagging. Apparently the spring was dislodged by someone banging into it while parked in a public garage. I can see where to hook the end of the spring closest to the door, but I am not able to visualize the area where the spring attaches behind the mirror. Is there a way to remove the mirror or otherwise visualize the attachment point?

I think I had the same problem with mine. The cast hook inside the mirror broke off at one time. I was able to bend the end of the spring slightly and attach it to the hole, where hook used to be.
There are links to the instruction how to take the mirror apart. The cover comes off by prying off small wire visible when you fold whole mirror. The glass come off by prying another clip on the top.
Good luck.
