In case anyone finds this helpful, I'll answer this original post. In regards to the AC not coming out of the center vents, that is an issue related to the vacuum pods that open and close the ducts to direct the flow of air to the various vents. By default, the center vents are closed, and require the vacuum pod to open that vent. Since that pod is has failed, air does not blow through it. This is around a $300 repair job. The part itself is only about $20, but labor adds up because some may have to remove the dash to get to the install.

Side view mirrors are adjusted by the knob on the center console where the window switches are. Located on the wooden area before the wooden roller "desk" compartment is.

When I lived in Phoenix, my Mercedes was serviced by Myerstar Service at Hayden and McDowell,NW corner.It is a family run business, specializes in older models, very fair. Call and speak to Valerie Myers about it.
