Want to replace your wing mirrors with aftermarket ones ? Had someone in a shopping mall car park break ...
Remove the screws that hold the mirror and remove it from the door. Attach the new mirror. Reconnect the electrical connector and make sure you test the new mirror before putting the parts back into place. Reverse the entire procedure to reassemble the door trim panel.
Hm, this may be a trip to the dealer.. Other alternatives include your local salvage yards. Carpart.com (a search tool which searches the inventory of scap yards nationwide) shows a few mirrors on there, but they are the same price as new ones listed on eBay. Good luck!
Check this guide as reference for solve ypur problem; this is one DIY about replace Wing Mirror... 1.- Disconnect your negative battery cable, if your Ford Focus has power side mirrors. If it has manual side mirrors, disconnecting the battery is unnecessary. 2.- Pry off the wing mirror's inside sail panel (shaped like a triangle). Insert a trim panel tool between the door skin and the plastic panel to pry it off. 3.- Carefully pull the sail panel away, minding the wiring if the mirror is power-operated. Unplug the electrical harness and set the panel aside. 4.- Open the door and hold the outside part of the wing mirror steady. Remove the mounting bolt with a socket wrench, and then remove the mirror screw with a Phillips screwdriver (the mirror bolt and screw is visible with the panel removed). 5.- Pull the wing mirror assembly from its mount (from the outside). Insert the replacement mirror assembly in place; tighten the bolt and the screw. 6.- Attach the wiring connection to the replacement mirror. Position the sail panel in place and push it against the door to snap it back on.
Hope helps (remember comment and rated this). TY for using Fixya.
remove the plastic cover directly behind the mirror on the inside of the door, it just clips off normally with a flat blade or knife (Blunt knife if possible as a sharp one may cut the upholstery)
Once removed you should be able to see the retaining bolts that hold the mirror to the door.
If you have electric mirrors there should be a multi wire electrical plug you will have to disconnect before removing the mirror.
Hope this helps
I changed mine a few years ago (2005 Sharan). Price of the LED part was ~£20 from the main dealer. Biggest problem was taking the mirror unit apart. I spent ages removing the mirror then seperating the parts. Later some ne'r-do-well knocked into the mirror on a bike, folding it towards the front of the car, and it all just came apart in such a way as to make changing the indicator easy!
Actually the first answer was right. On my 2007 Sprinter chassis, the side mirrors have an upper flat mirror and a lower convex mirror. The upper mirror comes off exactly as described; by tilting it so that it faces down, and then gently lifting it from the top to slide it off the track. (On my sprinter the mirrors are heated, so there are wires that remain attached when you slide it off.
This reveals three screws that you can get at with a torex screw driver without needing any flexible shafts etc. It appears that there is a fourth screw or clip of some sort on the bottom, but I was not able to figure out how to get the bottom convex mirror off to get at it. That would enable the removal of the full shell.
Even without that bottom screw I was able to flex the shell enough to get the turn signal lens assembly out. But removing it entirely requires reaching in with needle nosed pliers and rotating the bulb assembly a quarter turn, and then reversing the whole assembly to get it back. In my case I was replacing the turn signal lens, but it should work the same for replacing the bulb. Good luck.
You cannot change the bulb - the indicator is a sealed unit - mine failed because water got into a crack. VW will sell you the unit - you need to dismantle the wing mirror to fit it - took me about 20 mins. Cost of the unit was about £17
TO FIT A NEW MIRROR FIRST CONNECT THE WIRING PLUGS THEN ENSURE THE FRICTION PIN ON THE BACK OF MIRROR ENGAGES IN THE SLOT (OUTER EDGE OF MIRROR) PRESS FIRMLY AT THE CENTRE OF THE MIRROR TO ENGAGE THE RETAINING CLIP....IF YOU NEED TO REMOVE MIRROR INSERT A FLAT TOOL BEHIND THE LOWER EDGE AND LEVER IT FROM THE CLIPS.. HOPE I WAS OF SOME HELP TO YOU...
