How to remove the outside mirror?

The following instructions are regarding how to take the outside mirror(s) out of its housing, for instance for when it’s broken, or if you need to take its housing apart more rigorously.

·         For you info; it is possible to pivot the mirror on its foot; outwards…



·         …and inwards, to make it easier to work on if necessary.



1.       When you carefully push the mirror at its most inward position and pull the mirror a bit out of the shell, you can see two metal spring-wires sitting against the back…          



2.       …like you can see on this already disassembled one.

The idea is now to release the spring-wires from the hooks with a mini-screwdriver, until they both are released…  




3.       …like so.

Now you can take the mirror easily out with the “car’s side” first.

Take off the two electrical wires from the mirror heating. They’re both brown and don’t have to be marked, because it doesn’t matter how you put them back.




4.       When you put the mirror back, all you have to do is hook the spring-wires back like they were in point 2, re-connect the electrical wires from the mirror heater and push the mirror back in its place.

When it’s a new mirror, you put the spring-wire from the old one on the new one first.



Continuing instructions how to take the electrical mirror adjustment out of the housing, for instance when it’s malfunctioning.

1.       Take out the three Torx10 screws, fixing the adjustment unit to the housing.

One is sitting high…




2.       …and there’s number 2…



3.       …and number 3.



4.       On the back is the connector, which can be removed by prying a bit with a mini-screwdriver.



Continuing instructions how to take the shells from the cast-alloy mirror stay, for instance when they have to be (re-) spayed, or replaced.

1.       The top part of the shell is clipped onto the lower part three places, but this has to be done carefully: locate where the three clips are positioned in the lower part and pull them from the inside one at a time a little bit towards you and release them by pulling the shell a bit upwards. If a clip gets broken, superglue them together again.



2.       The remaining shell is connected to the frame with four Torx20 screws.

On the outside top…



3.       …the inside top…



4.       …and two on the underside.



5.       Now the shell can be taken off.

·         If the outside temperature sensor had to be replaced (situated only on the right hand side), now is the time to do so, it’s slid into the remaining plastic shell.



Continuing instructions how to take the complete remaining stay off the car, for instance when the plastic cover has to be (re-) sprayed, or when it has to be replaced, or when refitting an outside temp sensor (Vital sensor for a proper working A/C!).

1.       Take the triangle on the inside of the car off, simply by pulling it off. Be careful not to pull too hard (even though is sits very tight), considering the tweeter and its cable.




2.       Disconnect the connector.



3.       Take out the three Torx20 screws, which fix the mirror frame to the car.  



4.       This is where I stopped, because the upper corner of plastic cladding on the outside is fixed to the car with a little plastic clip (like the ones holding the door trimming, only one size smaller) and that will not survive. Get one or two from the dealer before taking this off.  



5.       To take the plastic cladding from the alloy frame, take out the two screws of the underside and the two on the inside of the triangle.  


6.       Putting everything back is simply done in the reversed order.
