Hi I removed my drivers side mirror glass to check the connections for the auto dim, now I can't get the flaming thing back on, looks impossible!!!!

 

thanks to anyone who can help.

To remove the glass, the mirror is first adjusted to look down and then a tool used at its top edge to lever it free. Fitting back is supposed to be a reversal of the removal.

thanks for your reply, it seems when I followed the procedure you described I came away with too much attached to the glass, I've now refitted the support cradle ( 8 clips) which attaches to the motorised adjustment pins and now the glass is a push fit as mentioned in the instructions. I'm not doing this again!

Good to see you have fixed it and we have all learnt something.
