Refitting
7 Refitting is a reversal of removal, but where applicable refit the door inner trim panel with reference to Section 13.

Mirror glass
Removal
8 Various methods have been used to retain the glass. On some mirrors, the glass cannot be removed from the housing, and the complete mirror unit must be renewed. The mirror glass may be stuck using adhesive pads; on later types of mirror, the glass may be held by a wire clip, or by a locking ring.

9 To remove a mirror glass secured by a locking ring, tilt the glass fully upwards, then insert a screwdriver at the lower edge of the glass and locate the locking ring. Lever the locking ring towards the door of the vehicle to release the glass (see illustration).

10 To remove a mirror glass secured by a wire clip, working at the bottom edge of the mirror glass, locate the ends of the spring clip which secures the glass. Using a screwdriver, push the ends of the clip together to release the glass. Withdraw the glass, and disconnect the wiring, where applicable. Recover the spring clip if it is loose (see illustrations).

Refitting
11 On models where the glass is secured by a locking ring, where applicable reconnect the wiring to the glass, then locate the glass in the housing, and lever the locking ring away from the door to lock the glass in position.

12 On models where the glass is retained by a wire clip, fit the spring clip to the rear of the mirror glass, ensuring that the clip is correctly located in the slots in the rear of the mirror glass. Push the mirror glass into the mirror until the spring clip locks into position in the mirror adjuster groove. On models where the mirror glass is secured by a wire clip, lightly grease the plastic ring on the adjuster to aid refitting of the spring clip.

Mirror adjustment mechanism 13 The adjustment mechanism is integral with the mirror assembly, and if faulty, the complete mirror must be renewed.
