Nearside wing mirror on 1998 Z3

The mirror is working loose, how do I tighten it? I'm not aware of it having been hit at all and there are no marks on it. It is currently quite loose hanging on to the mounting on the door. Many thanks.

What is the best online site for Z3 spares?

Hi Cheryllyn:
I'm not familiar with the term "radiator plug" but anything to do with radiator and blew does not sound good.
What happened when you tried topping up?
When you try to turn the engine over, what happens? Is there a clicking sound? Any action from the started? Is the battery OK?
I'm thinking that what you are potentially dealing with will require some qualified mechanical expertise.
My suggestion?
Contact your favorite mechanic.
Best of luck.

Tighten side mirror

If the mirror housing is loose and nothing has hit it and broken the mounting to the door frame, yes. If it is the glass part that is loose and it is a electric or manual mirror, something has damaged it behind the glass replacing it will fix problem.

Please describe how to replace a 2004 focus wing mirror

You have to remove the sail cover that's on the opposite side of the mirror. It is held on by just some plastic lips on the edges. Pry off carefully. There is one speed nut at the very front of the mirror and one large nut in the center. That's it. Don't drop the big nut into the door panel.
