SOURCE: Mirror indicator

under the mirror there should be a 1 1/2 slot door under mirror that looks like a flat lid this will be flush with mirror moulding where it looks like a quarter can turn it
this is the light access panel the detachment screw is threw this panel to take off mirror then you can access the bulb

SOURCE: VW indicator unit on wing mirror

Ok very carefully pull off the mirrior blade. The mirrior blade is clipped but EXTEMELY fragile and will break if forced. From there remove the 2 heated blade wires. The cover is also clipped as you will notice after that is removed. You have to pry with a plastic tip between the cover and hosing near the body of the car while pulling the clips in the housing you see to lift the cover straight up. Once this is done you'll need a t-10 torx screwdriver to remove the lower portion. These screws are when you're looking straight down. With this assembly off you can access the 2 other little screws holding the flasher to the bottom cover. Remove the wires and the little clip and there you go. Installation is reverse.

SOURCE: 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!

Change indicator bulb in Volvo V70 wing mirror


Easy peasy. Adjust mirror fully one direction or the other, right or left. Grab mirror glass through the gap created, pull hard to remove mirror glass. Light bulb assembly will be exposed for simple swap. Use a #194 bulb of your choice (there are many choices at your favorite local auto parts dealer). SELECT YOUR CAR
Good luck, should take five minutes or less.

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.

MIRROR INDICATOR BULB


You cannot change the bulb - the indicator is a sealed unit - mine failed because water got into a crack.  VW will sell you the unit - you need to dismantle the wing mirror to fit it - took me about 20 mins.  Cost of the unit was about £17
