Hello everyone, I'm retrofitting my foldable mirrors, the driver side was ok, but I'm trying the other side and i can't loose the bolt, is an M10 bolt, i tried using WD-40 and doesn't work, my screwdriver doesn't work and now the gummy from the screwdriver moves but not the screw i tried with a cordless drill (18v) not much power but it doesn't work. And the problem is that is in a complicated place. Does someone has a suggestion/tool?

You need a socket drive ratchet on it really.

You’ll get the leverage on it then.

Lol I’m Not sure if the reply is a thanks

Done loads of folding mirror retro fits never had an issue with a socket / extension bar and ratchet.

Tip……get a magnetic pick up tool to retrieve the bolt.

It lists 2 bolts not sure what one of them is for but one is M8 x 25 the other one has no detail on size.

Dunno mate the parts database lists only the 2 I mentioned above.

You can get info from the other bolt if need be.

yes you are right it was m8x25, i was not sure because the "head" is m10 (make sense now) I'm not an expert but you was right, thanks a lot!!! you saved me hahaha
i wento to Audi and they was nice enough to give me one screw without "questions" so was nice. I will continue later ... I hope I will not lose it again, also I will try to get the other. Thanks a lot for your help!!

The screw is most likely stuck to the magnet on the back of the speaker.
that’s what happened to me on my 8v. Spent ages looking for it.
