Door mirror replacement

  1. HI/HELP
    I'm about to fix a new door mirror and want to know if there's a captive nut on the inside of the door skin or will the nut/washers and gubbins drop inside the door when I remove the existing mirror. In other words, will I have to remove interior handles and door card to fit new mirror????

    There is a captive nut :thumbsup:
  3. many thanks
  4. Don't bin the old mirror. The threaded portion of some new mirrors is too short and won't catch the thread if a plastic washer is used.
  5. I bought a tap for the thread and just cut the thread longer. This meant it would catch the captive. This was on the so called best quality Volksburg West ones.
