Hi everyone,

I've had a job on my list for a quite a while now, and I've only just come around to it, however I'm not sure quite how to tackle it.

My right wing mirror is loose, and no longer needs pulling upwards in order to fold itself in. This poses quite a problem - when driving, especially on the motorway, the mirror folds itself in so viewing the right side becomes quite a challenge. I don't want to buy a new one, and I might be able to fix it, if I knew how to get inside it. Anyone know how?

Thanks

They fall to pieces inside, and just cant be fixed properly, many have tried, new ones are so cheap and take 5 mins to fit.

Ah that's really annoying. Out of curiosity how does one get inside anyway? I've been looking at it for a while but I wasn't sure whether the glass could pull out of not.

I will definitely look at that replacement though, it looks well priced, thanks.

Forget 5 minutes. That is relatively speaking. Replacing the complete mirror is straight forward. But it can be tricky to get the coded back of.

The cable assembly inside breaks, as far as I am aware nobody ever managed to succesfully fix it, it's effectively a waste of time as new ones are so cheap. Once it's taken a knock, all the tabs end up broken inside.

Replacing the whole unit, you access it from the inside of the door and it's just a case of removing trim and bolts, the whole unit comes out as one. Install is reverse of removal.

The glass just comes off with a bit of brute force - its held in by plugs. But if the store replacement comes with mirrors on it, you don't even have to worry about that.
