Does anyone know if the black plastic surround that holds the cowling is available anywhere? I,ve checked citroen sevice but its not shown as a separate part from them.It is possible to remove it from the mirror assembly(a right fiddle).Could I buy a cheap second hand manual type and swop the part? Any thoughts?Thanks

You might end up having to getting a complete mirror from a breakers which should be cheaper than a new one from Citroen. If you can not get one the same colour you could swap the cover over but there is a chance its clips could break when removing it. Haynes explains how to do this, first the glass is removed and then the clips are unhooked so the cover can then pull off. On our C4 the cover got knocked off which broke the clips and a new cover supplied painted from Citroen was £53 in 2016.

yes ,I have come to that conclusion not a problem removing as most is missing !!!.do we know who makes the mirrors for citroen?
As all the mirrors on the mk1 and 2 are externally the same there must be parts that are common to all versions.I,ll see what l can get on ebay

update. bought a £20 manual mirror in the right colour,it must have been off a mk1 according to the date stamps.The black plastic surround had the same numbers as my electric mirror so after VERY careful disassembly the original is repaired.Reassembly in comparison is a dawdle!!so all good now.
