    Default Removing Door Mirror Glass...

    I hope to be fitting my new chrome mirror covers when I get home tonight, but have read about the original ones being a pig to remove, although I am not bothered about breaking the original ones, I would rather keep them intact to revert to std later on. How do you remove the mirror glass without breaking it, is it easy to do, or is there a nack to it..???

    if i remenber rightly you have to fold the mirror in then push the glass towards the hinge section then the glass just unclips ....this then gives you the access to the clips to remove the backing
