Hello,

can anyone tell me how to remove the interior triangle cover, that fits over the wing mirror securing bolts, thank you.

Vex is correct, it will still break though, the clips are sh*t when re fitting.

I think at the furthest (thinnest) end it's like a 'pop' clip & you need to pop that out first. For the two clips nearest the glass you need to slide the cover forward a few mm so they come free without snapping.

99% it will still break anyway!  ;D

I damaged the internal parts, when the wing mirror hit the tree whilst I was reversing, is it possible to replace them and for me to reuse the undamaged colour coded mirror body and glass again, can someone give me a quick guide how to do it, thanks.
