I seem to recall there being 2 screws on the underside of the mirror. After doing mine I recommend taken them off the car and leave them soaking in penetrating oil over night as mine were ******** to undo. Once the screws are out the cap just wiggles free. Don't remember if I removed the glass...
To be honest the standard item is pretty robust. Mine saw me sail past 180,000 miles and it was the flywheel that failed rather than the clutch. I got the car on about 80,000 and chipped it straight away to 190bhp. It ran like this until about 160,000 miles where I then gave it an extra 50bhp...
You need prefacelift side mounts and crash rams. iirc you need a washer or 2 to get it to sit right. So I'm told.
I converted mine to face-lift front and will now be going backwards to get my S4 bumper on
My old 1.6 avant didn't have them and it looked a bit naff to be honest. I wanted to retrofit them but sold the car and got my saloon after the need for an estate went. Would post a pic but Photobucket have broken the Internet
Hoping to get the dash back together today if this bug clears off. Just had a thought about the radio trims as seem to recall I can't reuse my prefacelift trims
Are these right?
