Wing mirror

Thanks Gordon. No Help!

I did a similar thing last week with a 7.5ton truck, caught a sign at the side of the road and smashed both nearside wing mirrors, cost me £130 :( Not impressed when they charge you £18 for 'insurance'

Ho hum

Right back to the problem in hand, Freelander wing mirrors....

Will :)

easy peasy. remove the black triangle of plastic on the inside of the door. Undo the bolts ( i think they are TORX bolts) and remove wing mirror from the outside

Does it just pull off this black plastic bit?

This one has what looks like a speaker panel directly behind the wing mirror, I haven't looked to see if it is actually a speaker, but its a grill thingey anyway. I gave it tentative tug but it seemed fairly well attached (strange for a Land Rover I know) I wondered if the grill bit popped out then it was screww fixed or something...

if its attached with clips anything like disco ones you'll need a long screwdriver & a lot of effort (about when you excpect it to break) to move the thing. probably no help but thought id say it anyway

You need to lever it firmly but carefully from the bottom edge. Then there are two wires behind that attch to the tweeter-thingy.

I swapped the non folding mirrors on our ex-Jules Freelander for the later folding type. YOu can get them off internet for £50-75 and it just needs one exterior hole being drilled out to (IIRC) 13mm. 10 minute job.

Cheers
