    Question Removing Painted Mirror Base Cover

    I'm trying to replace a damaged Door Mirropr. I need to swap the painted covers from the damaged mirror onto the new mirror. The main cover seems relatively straightforward to swap, but the small, base cover seems to be difficult to remove according to the few bits of info I can find. Anyone got any guidance/links for this ?

    Question Removing Painted Mirror Base Cover

    Thanks kenp.

    In what way a PITA ? Difficult to find where or how it's 'held' on or danger of breaking or is there a trick of some sort ?

    Because its actually quite tight.. its held in the groove you can see on your mirror (where its missing), and i used a small screwdriver to price it out but started where it actually ends and moved all the way round.

    Question Removing Painted Mirror Base Cover

    Sorry kenp, I'm not sure I understand what you're telling me - sometimes I can be slow. Do you mean, a groove on the 'mirror base' rather than on the 'mirror itself' ? Where does it 'start' and 'end' ?
