This procedure might be necessary to perform several repairs, but also for retrofit purposes. The instructions can also be helpful to perform a partial disassembly, in case the turn signal or the folding motor need to be replaced.

These instructions describe the process to tear down a side mirror when removed from the vehicle. To some extent, these instructions can be followed even if the side mirror is still installed in the vehicle. When this is possible, it will be explicitly stated ​in the instructions.

  • Trim removal tool
  • Pliers
  • 5mm flat head screwdriver
  • PZ2 Phillips head screwdriver
  • Connector unpin tool or small flat head screwdriver
  • Ratchet wrench ​10mm hex socket
  • T10 Torx bit
