To replace your side mirror, disconnect the battery's negative cable. Take off the interior door panel. Unplug the wiring harness if you have power-controlled mirrors. Take out the mirror bolts with either a socket wrench or a nut driver. Separate the actual mirror from the mirror assembly. Use a torx driver to extract the screws, and then pry the plastic tabs on the backing until the two pieces separate. Attach the new mirror to the assembly by snapping it onto the backing with the tabs.----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Super VAG K+CAN V4.8
You can blame it on your significant other, blame it on the kids or blame it on someone hitting it in the crowded parking lot. Whatever the reason, the side view mirror on your car is broken, missing or hanging by a thread. It's not that hard to replace. With a few common household tools, you can replace it yourself in less than 30 minutes. Forget the body shop or service station; they're going to charge you more in labor than you paid for the part online.
How to Install Side View Mirrors 1.Open the door wide and roll the window all the way down so you don't damage it. 2.Locate the plastic molding on the opposite side of the rear view mirror at the very front corner of the door's window. It'll probably be black plastic triangular-shaped molding, but it may have the same hue as the interior of the vehicle. 3.Gently but firmly pry that triangular molding off with the screwdriver. It's only snapped into place and there's usually a small ridge or lip that seats down into the window cavity. This ridge/lip should be no more than a quarter of an inch into the cavity. Pry it from a couple of spots until it comes free. 4.Locate the wire harness and unplug the mirror if it is an electric-powered mirror.5.Locate the three nuts inside the cavity of the door. There may be some foam plugs or insulation you'll need to move out of the way, but you can replace them after you install the new mirror. 6.Remove the nuts with the ratchet, extension and appropriate-sized socket. Be careful not to drop them into the door cavity. 7.Remove the old mirror and install the new one. 8.Tighten all three nuts. Plug the mirror into the harness if it is a powered one and test it before you close everything upThank you for using FixYa hope this will help your problem and don't forgetto rate me.thanks,Josefina

Take off door panel..it has plastic retainers so give it a good yank. May have to take screws out of arm rest and be easy with the door handle not to force it and break. The mirrow will be held on with a couple bolts/perty easy once you get the cover off..
You will have to remove the door panel, behind the triangle piece on the top right of the drivers side door panel you will see 3 nuts which hold the mirror in place. Remove the nuts and the mirror should come right off the door. Same on the passenger side.
If your tt is equipped w/ power mirrors the switch is on the driver door
panel behind the master window switch. Just twist knob either left or right. then move knob up or down, or side to side. Do this with the vehicle on or running. If switch is in middle it will not do anything.
