Small update on this.

When removing the mirror housing on the driver's side, the clip to remove it isn't in the bottom, but at the upper left corner of the mirror housing.

You actually have to tilt the mirror down and towards the car and then you unlicp the tab up and pull the housing out.

I just had the pleasure of replacing my mirror thanks to the local bar denizens deciding that my car needed a makeover. Thanks to that, you don't have to wonder why there's no tab on the bottom of your '03+ W220.

To remove the actual mirror, there is a metal clip that you pop up behind the glass after you remove housing, unclip the lcd plug and cut (yes cut) the two wires connecting the defroster.

You then have to solder the wires to the new mirror housing and do everything else in reverse order.

Not only has this great thread been linked to from the W220 S-Class Encyclopedia sticky, the Encyclopedia has some additional panel removal videos that have been suggested by members.

This sticky was an awesome contribution by Gabby - but don't miss the additional ones either.

I keep reviewing the rear door panel removal video to get a view of the activities required. But, my project is different in that I can't get the rear door. So, I need some suggestions on how to get this door open. The lock rises when the unlock button is depressed, it comes up manually, but when the handle is pulled nothing. The handle doesn't feel loose, but door won't open. Any suggestions?
