OEM Wing Mirror Cover Removal on a MK2.5

Recommended Posts

Ok guys,going a bit mad on this one ! Have had a little bit of water get into the clear lens where the bulb is on the wing mirror so trying to get the cap off to remove the lens.Looked in the forum search and says about prising off in a certain area once the mirror has been lowered slightly.

Have looked and looked and pushed where i can and nothing.Only thing i could see was a philips head screw just below what looks like to plastic lines (Or bottom half of an H as i thought).No matter what i do nothings happening.Any suggestions folks.....apart from getting a garage to do it??

Many thanks

You need to push small screwdrivers into each of the 2 notches you can see at the top of the casing once the lenses are tilted fully down.
You only need to flex the tabs down below the notches then push the cover forwards and lift off.

Have a look at this video-

It goes more in depth than you probably need but should help.

 

Also, I find that lowering the window while you do the job gives you a better angle to work.

Use 2 screwdrivers simultaneously, if you are deft enough you can insert the screwdrivers to flip the clips and push in deeper with care and push the cap forward a bit to where the clips won't relock before you try pulling the cap off

Finally got the covers off (Thanks stoney) but an hour later go to start the car and get an engine malfunction warning.Checked the Test screen and got E200 and E197 codes so then get the battery pack out and it starts so took it for a 5 mile run and all seems ok but then checked Forscan and have P2122 , C1235 , C1234 , C1233 codes (ABS and i believe Throttle sensor codes)

Getting tired on having a crap Focus 😞
