Ok very carefully pull off the mirrior blade. The mirrior blade is clipped but EXTEMELY fragile and will break if forced. From there remove the 2 heated blade wires. The cover is also clipped as you will notice after that is removed. You have to pry with a plastic tip between the cover and hosing near the body of the car while pulling the clips in the housing you see to lift the cover straight up. Once this is done you'll need a t-10 torx screwdriver to remove the lower portion. These screws are when you're looking straight down. With this assembly off you can access the 2 other little screws holding the flasher to the bottom cover. Remove the wires and the little clip and there you go. Installation is reverse.

I need to replace a wing mirror on a golf 2001 model is it complicated? Tracy


No usually you just use an Allen Wrench to remove the mirror but if it's an electric mirror you will also need to cut the wires and re-wire them up by using **** connectors and crimping them down with wire cutters.
You can buy these connectors at any Auto Parts store or even a Wal Mart they look like little round barrows.

How to remove and repalce vw golf wing mirror


On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you can remove the bolts securing the mirror to the door.

How do you replace the plastic wing mirror cover on vw Golf MK 4


Hi, It's a real bugger. You have to remove the mirror glass to access the screws (tor-x) that secure the cover running the risk of breaking the mirror. It is a ridiculous process, but can be done if you are patient.

Wing mirror indicator not working


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!

Indicator on wing mirror


Have you tried taking off the cover to see if the indicator cover is part of the entire wing mirror cover. I think it might all be part of the same cover. The Haynes manual may be able to help more.
