wing mirrors



  b/g 182, meg tourer
how do you remove the coloured plastic casing on the wing mirrors? is it easy enough?
and how do you replace the glass in them?

cheers

easiest way to remove the outer plastic casing is to slide a blunt object (steal a knife out the kitchen lol) under the mirror cap going from the narrow end (by the baseplate) and they'll just pop off. removed loads and never broke a clip yet.

iirc the glass just pulls out

doesnt the glass have a metal wire circlip sort of thing that you can see round the bottom or top of the mirror?

just pulling you can break them pretty easily

some tosser hit my wing mirror and the glass came out and was just held on with the heating element wires. pushed the glass back in and it clipped home. but tbh cant remember in detail if there was a circlip.

so to get the glass out do you have to take the cover off?! :S

no, but i needed the cover off for painting anyway.
i din, not have to be carefull getting the glass out because its cracked and needs replacing, it just presses back in by the looks of things like middo said.
