    Replacing a wing mirror

    Hi Guys

    I have just become the proud owner of a 63 plate A5 Sportback. Unfortunately some moronic thug decided to smash a wing mirror off at the weekend (curb side, so definitely not a passing car!).

    The plastic casing, mirror, and indicator are all fine, it's (luckily) just the bit that attaches to the car which is broken. I have a new part from Audi but was wondering if anyone has any hints, tips, or instructions on how to fit it before I start randomly taking bits off the car?

    Thanks in advance.

    Chris

    man I feel sorry for you, just picked up my 63 plate and would be fuming to find something like that.

    Give this a shot, not exactly what you want but shows a good view, so may help

    A few choice words were said! Last year my old man had his bonnet keyed just after picking up his new car, so I suppose it could've been worse. I just feel sorry for people who get a kick out of doing that sort of thing.

    Thanks for the links, that's exactly what I'm looking for!
