    S3 8P2 mirror cap removal - help, how do they come off!!

    Hi all,

    help please! I'm replacing my mirror caps. I've removed the mirror glass, no probs. I've removed the 3 screws, no probs. But how on earth do the mirror caps themselves pop/slide off?

    I can't for the life of me get them to budge! I'm now sick of putting them back together, staring at it and then dismantling to try again!!!

    Any help greatly appreciated guys!!

    Couple of small updates. With the black grill and anthracite alloys, I thought the already huge mirrors stuck out even more being Silver/Alu. So, cheap purchase of a set of A5's off of ebay, quick paint and popped them on today. Front still needs to be lower, I know....

    Personally, I think they are so much better and different to all others I suppose.





    Oh yeh, the other update



    No baby yet, 9 days overdue.
    Fits perfectly, but a total frightmare to get past the buckets. Still not getting rid of it. Aye, the car, nae the baby!

    Not a big fan of more doors S3's, although I've read the RS3 will be a limited run Sportback only, so you never know, I could be persuaded.
