my friend asked me to help her replace the blinker housing and bulb on the side mirror of her C230 coupe , i never worked on mercedes before so i am unfamiliar with this , is it hard to do? will i actually have to take the whole mirror off? any tips would be appreciated

I am not sure what you are trying to accomplish. If you are trying to change the bulbs to clear, that is illegal in most places. Federal regs require than any lights seen from the side or rear be amber. The mirror mounted signals can be seen from the rear.

I don't know how to change those bulbs. There is one poster on another board who says a friend changed his bulbs from incandescent to led's. He also says he wasn't present when this swap happened and doesn't know how it was done. Some people are saying that removing the mirror is the first step.

actually what i meant was the housing needs replacement and the bulb too because someone opened a door and cracked it....and then for some reason the bulbs burnt out
