Smashed part of n/s door mirror whilst reversing

I smashed part of n/s door mirror whilst reversing my 56-plate Forester; fibreglassed the housing, and now it has condensation in the indicator lenses; how do I dismantle the mirror asssembly to clean it out - no screws visible so I'm guessing it must be prised off?

As far as I can remember you can "prise" the plastic triang off and it should reveal 3 screws for complete removal

My ml 270 year 2001 wing mirror indicator got smashed but now I dont have front or rear indicators on the jeep, need to fix unfilled I can replace the complete wing morror with the indicator in it.


When mirror got smashed it may have shorted the wiring. Insure wiring is not shorted and tape loose ends. Then check fuse and you may restore other signals.

Mini one wing mirror


Most car breakers yards will have one,mirror included,an extra couple of quid and they will fit it for you. A lot cheaper than going to a dealer.

Car stalls whilst driving along or in idle. It will restart then stall again after a short while


The symptoms all indicate a dirty (oily grime) build up in the throttle body interior. You will be pleased to learn the 'fix' should be quick and low cost.
Disconnect the air ducting between the air cleaner/filter housing and the throttle body. Spray WD40 or Carb choke cleaner into the throttle body interior and the throttle plate. Rub and wipe away the grime. Keep doing this until the interior looks like new. Turn the throttle Plate by applying pressure the the top half with your fingers. Clean as much as you can beyond it. Locate your idle air control (IAC) valve ( on or near the throttle body) and associated air passages to and from it. Clean these, if necessary dismount the IAC valve and soak the valve until free of all dirt. Reassemble everything and reinstate the ducting and you are done!

How do I remove the inside door panel of a 2001 AU11 Ford Fairmont to get at the manual door cable?


Standard Trim Disconnect the remote rod-to-lock knob assembly prior to lifting off the housing plate, to avoid possible damage to the lock knob assembly.
  1. Remove the inside door handles by unfastening the retaining screws.
  2. Remove the armrest. Tag and disconnect all electrical connectors.
  3. Remove the mirror remote control bezel nut and bezel.
Before you proceed to the next step, carefully inspect the door panel to make sure that all the retaining screws have been removed.
  1. Using a wooden spatula or panel puller (available at most automotive parts stores), pry around the trim panel putting pressure at the door trim clips. NEVER PRY BETWEEN THE CLIPS.
  2. Installation is the reverse of removal. When installing the trim panel, align the clips in the panel with the holes in the door, then apply pressure on the panel over the clip until the clip snaps into place.

My dirver's side mirror has been smashed but the


Most auto parts store have replacements with self adhesive tape on the back. Peal and stick, just remember to clean the surface good. Also, they may need to measure the passenger mirror to give you the correct size.

Installing replacement side mirror on 2007 Subaru Forester


yes... you'll need to 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 access the bolts holding the mirror on and disconnect the wiring harness as well..

Right mirror was smashed & now both mirrors(?) get adjusted,not 1


Hi, try to see if the cables that enter the right mirror case have any damaged insulation due to collision. But before this check a menu at SETTINGS\CONVENIENCE\ about mirrors that enables a synchronized adjustment of both mirrors. This should be set at "individual".
