Wing mirror glass replacement

Post by timwilks13 » Thu Apr 29, 2021 8:25 pm

As per the title, has anyone ever replaced the glass in the samurai style wing mirrors? The whole unit doesn't look like it comes apart, but you can buy just the glass so assume it does somehow?

Thought there was some little screws in the surround?

For the price buy a set off ebay.

These are the old style. £23 posted from one of the indian sellers.

I can get a new set over here, £13 each for the old type, £38 for my style or £5 for the glass, I'll give the glass a go first, no screws so might be glued. Worst case I get the hair dryer on it, mess it up, then buy a replacement.
