the door on the mirror flops down and the frame is cracked. want to replace the mirror in passenger visor of s500. Haven't been able to use it for 2 years.
Dealership replaced it but it broke again so I just left it as is. It will not move to up position constantly drops down as a sun visor even when I don't want one.
Purchased the car with a broken driver side vanity mirror door. I glued it shut temporarily until I get around to replacing it with a new one.
