Frequently asked questions about replacing a side mirror

How to replace a side mirror?

To replace the mirror element itself, there is usually no need to remove the mirror housing. It is enough to press the mirror element as far as it will go, so that its edge comes out of the housing. After that, use a flat screwdriver to release the retainers. Install the new element in place of the old one. You can find more information on replacing a wing mirror on your exact vehicle in the step-by-step instructions from AUTODOC CLUB.

Can I drive with a broken wing mirror?

No, you cannot. There is a penalty for driving with damaged exterior mirrors. In addition, driving safety directly depends on their condition. Even minor cracks in the mirror element impair visibility, which increases the risk of an accident. Therefore, damaged components should be replaced immediately.

How do I remove the wing mirror housing?

To access the wing mirror fasteners, on many cars it is necessary to remove a part of the door trim in the area where the component is located. On other vehicles, it is enough just to pry off and remove the inner lining of the part. If necessary, detach the connectors of the mirror actuator and heater. Then unscrew the fasteners and remove the part.
