    Mirror cap removal

    Does anybody know how to remove the existing mirror cap as the missis has decided she wanted to scrape it down a wall so I thought I may as well replace them both with the Matt aluminum S4 caps, not trying to make my old oil burner look like something it isn't but I've gotta say they look pretty good and it breaks the whole black car up???

Plenty more to be done.

    I also need to know how to remove the mirror cap on a facelift. Someone has scraped mine, also once it's off can you still use the car? I.E nothing will fall off or get wet.

    I originally bought it for her lol but then I started to modify it so it became a weekend cruiser for when we go out and about, so I got her another motor instead and this is the first time she drove it in about 4 months so she has now been banned from using it. Not sure on which ones I need though.

    If it's of any help, the facelift version has a one inch flat surface on the leading edge, whereby the pre-facelift in the picture appears not to have this, though I may be wrong. Now check the shape of your existing caps to determine which ones will fit.

    Like you mentioned, they will look real good on a black car.

    Mine is a 2010 so is pre facelift but why does it say they are 2008-2009?

    What's involved in fitting the folding mirrors? Do you need new wiring loom and mirror switch?
