Re: replacing the wing mirror on an audi A4
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...

Yes, you can replace only the glass part. I'm sure that if you go to the dealership and ask for the glass part they will be more than happy to sell you one. I hope this helps. Thanks and have a nice day.
I don't know your vehicle. However, a few months ago one of the side mirrors was broken on our pickup truck (a Chevy Silverado). We had the glass shop put in the new mirror and they just glued the new mirror on top of the broken one.
Folks, Just found my problem ...... There's a flexible conduit (corrugated rubber sleeve) between the driver's door and the door arch which contains the wiring loom for the drivers door central locking/door speaker/electric windows/mirrors etc....discovered when I slipped off the sleeve that 4 cables in the wiring loom had broken due to repeated flexing when drivers door was opened/closed over the years (2001 Audi A4). Resoldered broken wires and insulated same....now working better than ever again ...ie dashboard back lighting seems brighter than it had been for some time? Also drivers door loudspeaker is back in action again (hadn't noticed that it had gone).
It's kinda difficult to reseat the rubber sleeving correctly after the repair job...will probably use some silicone sealant on the sleeve to ensure that there is no water ingress to wiring loom afterwards. I'm not too impressed with Audi design people after that, should have used cable that has a better flexibility rating (esp on drivers door!).
hi there the easiest way is to remove the lower black cover 2xscrews then with aplastic spreader locate the 2 tabs that hold black cover to mirror cover and press them in and pull black cover down then with a small pry tool carefully prise mirror glass out and disconect wires this will reveal the small single screw that holds the cover to the mirror unit remove this and the rest should be self explaned hope this helps..
There is a black plastic cover on the other side of the mirror, take it off make sure you have the wires long enough to splice back to you will be able to see all the bolts that need to come off to replace the mirror. You will be able to figure out the rest it is very simple
