I got a new rear view mirror for my 77 240D, found this post, but am afraid to take my old mirror out before I know how to put the new one back in. Do I just pop it back in? Surely it couldn't be that easy! [:I]
There's a spring loaded fastener on the stalk which is really strong, so just push it back in or pull it out hard. They're designed to come off with a large force, or put back in with the same force.
Caution: Do not remove the mirror face from the stalk, it's hard to put back in. We picked a good one from the yard but accidentally pulled the mirror from the stalk, now I don't want to break the glass by pushing hard just so the stalk ball joint would fit nicely.
Thanks all for your tips. Keep your fingers crossed for me this weekend - hoping I have enough brute strength to pull out and push back in this mirror. I'll let u know if I have any problems. Thanks again!
