Question about 1998 Jaguar XK8
Hi all. Need to replace the Door mirror glass. Is it just a simple matter of prising the old one off and replacing or is there anything I need to know or a knack to doing it, like top/bottom/side first ? Can get a Genuine replacement no problem just need to know how to remove old glass. Thanks all Rgds tried to replace the door mirror and cracked the replacement. can anyone help with fitting instructions please?
You need to put on a pair of gloves, and safety glasses. (Safety First !)
Prise off the broken mirror from the plastic base that it is stuck too.
Give the plastic a clean with nail polish remover or similar.
Peel off the backing on new mirror glass, and carefully stick it on.
Good Luck !
