I have a 2006 A3 8P Sportback, and the other week some little scrote very kindly kicked my wing mirror off. The mirror and colour-coded casing aren't damaged, but the mounting is well and truly shafted.
I've fixed things like this before on previous cars, so I just nipped to the dealers to get a replacement unit and have went to fit it. I've removed the door card, and have undone the bolt holding the mirror on - however, the loom which attaches to the control unit in the door is proving troublesome.
It disappears into the door cavity and is clipped down, then re-emerges where the mirror base attaches. There appears to be no easy way of getting to this loom to remove it (it's all that is holding the mounting on) short of snipping it off, and then somehow managing to thread the new loom through the tiniest of tiny gaps.
Has anyone done this before and can give me a hint?
