      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. **Solved** I dismantled the new wing mirror and attached it to the old mirrors bracket. Hi, I'm trying to replace the left hand side wing mirror on my mk 5, i've bought a replacement but i'm having trouble fitting it to the car. The problem is due to the bracket that mounts the mirror to the car being cast metal while the original is plastic. The holes in the new mirrors mount are a mm or 2 larger than the ones in the original meaning i cant reuse the existing screws. To attach it i've bought some nuts and bolts, though i can't imagine this will be optimal as it'll be a pain to tighten them as i'll only have access to one end. Does anyone have any experience or know how the mirror with the metal bracket should be fitted? Regards, Nul
