I've need to fit a replacement driver-side wing mirror to my 1998 Ford
Fiesta 1.25 Encore, petrol (it's the type with a little handle to position
the mirror from the inside), I need to replace the whole unit not just the
glass, as the other one was completely smashed. Can anyone tell me where I
start as I can't even get the old one off! I've misplaced my Haynes manual
after a house move too so I'm stuck. Is there a web site that gives
firstly remove the black plastic triangular cover, this is just pressed on
so a firm pull in the correct place should remove it without breakage.
behind you will find 3 screws to remove the unit and replace.
now don't hold me to this, 'cos I've had a drink and a sleep since I last
played with a fizzer,
the trim on the inside of the door carefully prises off and there are three
screws that hold the mirror to the door. you may or may not have to remove
the little adjusting handle if it won't fit through the trim (or if the new
mirror doesn't come with one)
sorry if I don't sound too helpful
