I have a 2001/Y Audi A4 with electric folding wing mirrors. This
weekend, it has apparently been attacked by somebody who wanted to
unfold one of the wing mirrors for a laugh. Unfortunately, they
instead managed to break it at the base where the mirror unit joins to
the rest of the car.
Now the good thing is the whole mirror unit and casing is intact and
all the motors are still working, but the fibreglass and rubber that
fixes it to the chassis are snapped.
What do you think is the cheapest way to fix this? Is it possible to
replace just the attaching bracket instead of the whole mirror
assembly? If the whole mirror does need to be replaced, how easy is
this to do by myself - does it require the door to be taken off or is
it a quite modular unit?
I can supply pictures by email if this helps,
Many thanks in advance for any help,
