360 Wing Mirror Removal

Removing Wing Mirror


Remove the triangular plastic tweeter piece in the forward corner of either door. The connector has a small piece that has to be pushed in to release the connector. Feel for the detent and push in gradually wit a small screw driver, etc. Remove the tweeter housing.

Unscrew the upper screw fastening the mirror outer frame to the door frame.

Unscrew the front nut and the two central screws fastening the mirror to the door frame.

Detach the door cable electrical connection, and remove the mirror.

Carefully detach the outside air temp sensor on the driverís side mirror.

Replacement is the reverse.

Torque values for the window screws is 4.1 Nm or about 3 ft-lbs.

Anyone know how to remove this triangular plastic piece? No apparent screws and I'm a bit reactant to prise it off with a flathead screwdriver...

Gentle prising and off it came. No bolts/screws involved.

Next step doesn't seem so straightforward. It looks like there is a top screw attaching the outer wing mirror panel to the door frame, but access to this screw is hampered by the extended rubber seal that is positioned behind the plastic tweeter housing when this is removed. Looks like this rubber forms part of the rubber seal that runs the length of the door and removal of it is not easily done (by me anyway!).

Picture below shows 2 screw points top yellow arrow indicating the one that I can't access to unscrew.

Has anyone ever taken a 360 wing mirror off and had a similar problem - or more importantly a solution??? Thanks in advance...

Job done. But for future reference, in case anyone tries this themselves. The 2 screws I indicated above are not necessary to release, the only attached the wing mirror stem to the black plate.

The real hurdle in this task is to remove the bottom bolt. It is almost impossible to access and really needs the top section of the door panel to be removed for half decent access - unfortunately to release this panel you have to almost release the entire door panels. Even then its a pain.

Well its off now in any case and I'm sorry I ever started my "Spring Detail"

No worries Rik. I'm slightly calmer now.
Nearly ripped it off at one point yesterday. There's a lesson to be learned in all this. Don't work on your own car whilst simultaneously raging with yourself for complete stupidity in reversing into the garage pillar. Its a recipe for disaster...

right you are....about four months ago I took off the 456 inner door panel to 'fix' my window and it turned into almost an all day even rectifying another item I overlooked.

At least next time I know how to do that area faster.....
