The brackets on my vanity mirror covers are broken (typical merc problem) so I bought replacement visors(pictured above) to replace only the vanity mirrors originally but I might as well replace the whole sun visor assembly instead of the hassle of prying the mirrors out and soldering it to my current visors.

Now this is the part that confuses me. I dont see any wiring on the W140 sun visors so how do the vanity mirrors get their power? Is the electrical current going through the screws or what?

The only other Merc sun visor I had to replace was the W163 and that had wires on it that I had to splice when I replaced it.

So are the 140's visors simply a case of removing the old ones, screwing in these replacements and the mirrors will light up when opened? :confused:
