A good friend of mine, a big fan of the site, recommended that I reach out to this well of knowledge for a little help with my situation.
The short version is that today, a distracted individual struck the passenger side mirror of my C300 and broke it. He struck the mirror, with his driver side door, as he foolishly opened his door while stepping out of his parked car, while failing to see oncoming vehicles.
Since my car was moving when it was struck, the incident caused the passenger side mirror to crack and the side mirror cover to come off and fall to the ground.
Immediately upon hitting the ground, the mirror cover was run over and cracked to pieces. The guy took off and could not be found.
I wanted to give it a try at fixing this myself. I recovered the broken mirror cover and read off a couple of parts numbers that I would like to purchase.
I am going to need a new mirror cover, a lamp lens, and a new mirror glass. The rest of the parts appear to be operative and in good condition.
The part numbers that I think I needhave are the following:
Lamp Lens: A 2048200821
Mirror Cover : A 2048100264 7755
Mirror Glass : missing
I was able to locate the lamp lens by part number on many websites, and it appears that is going to cost me about $50.00 US. My problem is that I have not been able to locate the Mirror Cover. I searched Mercedes Benz Parts
for the part number and they do not have it. A google search for the part number gave me no results.
Can someone help me locate the mirror cover and recommend me a mirror glass? It is pretty important that the mirror cover matches the car in color.
The car is a 2008 C300 dark grey.
Is this something that someone with little experience will be able to install? I appreciate your help and patience in helping a fellow MB owner.
