Side mirror removal

How do I remove the driver's side mirror adjustment?

I'm wanting to remove the driver's side mirror. I pryed off the interior triangle and got access to the three screws, but unless I take the adjustment arm off, it isn't going anywhere.

RE: Side mirror removal

Look on the side of the adjustment opposite of the arm and you will find a small plastic piece thats wedged down inside a channel. Use a sharp point to remove the piece and the arm will come off.

Just a shot in the dark, but I think the adjustment lever has a screw on it. Hard to see it.

There might be a screw, I really don't remember one and it has bee a while since I did it. But, I did the removal thing without looking at a book first because thats the way I am. I don't consult a book until I can't figure it out.

RE: Side mirror removal

I saw the rectangular ribbed cover piece, but I was hoping to hear if I push it in, pull it out, slide it forward or back? I wanted to know something before I attacked the plastic with a mini screwdriver and got it all scratched and dented.

I am replying to this old post with hopes that you are still an active member.

Regarding the thread "Side mirror removal..." I am not clear how to remove the adjustment lever.

I, like many others do not have a manual and the MB.braingears is no longer available on-line.

This model is a 82 300CD with a right side mirror that someone decided to break the casting structure that houses the adjustment mechanisim (outside the vehicle).

Perhaps you are still an active member and can clarify the instructions you provided to Greg so many years ago now.

I am not finding much luck removing the side mirror adjustment knob from a '82 300CD. You said, "....a small plastic piece thats wedged down inside a channel."
Is the channel you speak of on the side of the knob that faces the door (e.g. to the outside)? I am puzzled as to how one would access the plastic piece wedged therin even with the three screws of the mirror bracket removed?

Thanks!
