    Hi,

    Just would like advise on how to take off my wing mirror casing. Iv had some new ones painted gloss black and need to swap them over. Any idea if they just clip or pull off from an angle? I tried removing the glass which was easy enough just struggled getting the casing off. I have an a3 Sportback 2008. No indicator or folding mirrors.

    Thanks.

    There is a step by step guide I used on here somewhere, just need to look for it.

    But basically the door card and the whole wing mirror has to come off

    Take the mirror glass out just pulls out unplug the wire for the heated mirrors undo the to little screws underneath and the bottom case will come off then undo the little screw that's behind the mirror glass that you've taken out that holds the mirror cover to the arm of the mirror then just wiggle the cover upward and it will come unclipped done

    Was a little fiddly just trying to line up and clip the casing back on but yeah not lonng to do after the help on here. 2x screws under neither then wiggle the bottom black plastic to disconnect the casing then from the corner pull upwards and it slots off.
