    Hi All,
    After some advice regarding the replacement of Power Fold Wing Mirror. Some boy racer has just taken mine clean off (Parts of distributed far & wide) is it best to stick with VW parts or are some of the aftermarket non OEM ones ok?
    Thanks in advance.

    Collect as many parts as possible as the aerials are inside the wing mirrors, aftermarket mirrors fit and work but generally dont come with the aerials inside
    A complete genuine VW one with aerials (model dependant) is around £300-400 unpainted

    Pauly, thanks for the advice, pretty gutted that the mirror is damaged to the extent that it is, guess I just wanted a cheap fix but VW seems to have the winning edge.

    Genuine are available in component form so you may not need to replace everything depending on damage

    I will have a good look, hopefully as you say I won't need every bit of it. Really annoying as he did stop until he seen me getting out of the van, then as you guessed he did one as rather a rapid speed, that said looking at my mirror his car must be damaged (hopefully)

    Jeez, if he was that close to the van, thank god it was only the mirror, k**bhead could have taken out the whole side of the van. If you have power folding mirrors, there has recently been a couple of threads on here about using the T5 mirrors and a separately sourced control box to make them fold on alarm activation (as its not possible 'yet' with the T6 components), may be worth a looksee if you've got to replace one anyway.

    DaveyB at the time looking on the positives, that was exactly the response that I gave to my wife, could have been the whole side needing repair, still gutted that the t--t didn't stop for any length of time!

    Did you get his number, failing to stop is an offence....

    Caravellet6, unfortunately not, for the brief moment that he stopped I could not read his plate, in fact I'm not even sure that it was a standard (legal) plate.

    Whats the easiest way to unclip the rear cap (No13) without breaking anything

    I also hit something with my right mirror. So I just want to know, is it possible to remove only that rear cap since that is a bit displaced? And like the above question any suggestions for the novice?

    Just changed mine and are a bit of a pain to do so have plenty of patience to hand

    Tip the glass forward, reach in the top and pull toward you and it will pop off, 2 wires to pull off the glass too (heated)

    2 small torx screws then to remove holding piece 11 and 6 together

    Then the whole 3 pieces 6,11 & 13 are just clipped together

    Get some trim tools and start pulling them apart (not easy and you may break some clips)
