Wing mirrors on 06 plate Golf TDi

Just bought an 06 plate golf and it doesn't appear to have a button to fold my wing mirrors in. I have tried manually folding but met with much resistance, what am I doing wrong, How can I do this?

Has it ocurred to you that your wing mirrors are not the electrically folding type, most are not. The switch on the drivers arm rest for adjusting the mirrrors will have a separate position for folding if yours fold. The resistance to fold by hand is very stiff as you have to overcome the spring tension, even when folded by hand they do not fold as flat as you might think.
I purchased a 2006 Golf 5 GT Tdi last year it had £5000 worth of factory fitted options but did not have electrically folding door mirrors - hope this helps.

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.
