It should be outlined in you Car Manual. For my C230 1998 I just pointed a hand held "clicker box" up close to the car visor area and pushed the visor buttons in order as described in the car manual. simple really.

I had to climb up on the ladder with my '98 E320 parked under the garage door opener to set mine. I don't remember the details, but I called the Mercedes tech support line (or whatever it's called) because the remote control method wasn't working. They told me how to program the car directly from the garage door opener unit and it worked.

This is needed if your garage door opener has something called "rolling codes" (or similar to that). It's a security feature where the code changes and the door opener and control have to be in synch.

The instructions to program the remotes are usually written on the back of the overhead garage door opener unit itself.
I have a unit with rolling codes and I also had to climb on a ladder to follow the programming procedure and to press and hold the correct button (see warning below.) It helps to have a helper in the car while you are performing the programming sequence.
WARNING: There are two buttons. One of them RESETS the unit itself while the other sends the code to the remotes. Should you press the RESET by mistake, you have to reprogram all the handheld remotes!

Working from memory here, but ...
- Point your garage door opener at the mirror, from a distance of 2 - 4 inches - Push and hold the button on the Opener and the desired button on the mirror - the mirror light should start by flashing slowly, and begin flashing quickly when it picks up the program
Note that more and more garage door openers have a frequency-hopping feature for security, i.e., the frequency that works one time will not the next. On those, there is a button to push on the opener that puts it in a "training mode" ... If you push that button, you then have 30 - 60 seconds to go through the steps outlined above.
Good luck.
