View Full Version : Please Help Dismantling Octavia Door Mirror

09-09-2008, 12:57 PM
I need to replace the lens / LED module for the indicator in my 2007 Octavia door mirror (offside).

Any tips on how to get the mirror apart would be much appreciated - the outer housing would seem to be clipped on? Hopefully the electrical connections are all inside the mirror itself - please tell me I don't need to take the door liner off the inside of the door?

Thanks in eager anticipation,

Maybe a bit unconventional answering my own post but putting this here for the benefit of others:

I've had a fiddle with it and the outer mirror cover springs off successfully by lifting up the casing at the door (pivot) side while applying pressure to the cover about half way along the front edge (finger pressure only, no levers needed). Once inside there are two screws looking down from the top which can be accessed by adjusting the mirror first one way and then the other. The electrical connection is straightforward - a plug with a clip release directly onto the LED unit.
