Is it possible to dismantle a SS1 door mirror. The electric motor works OK but the gearing is not meshing correctly. Thanks

Yes, very gently pry the mirror and its backplate outwards of housing at top/bottom to allow access to a couple of small screws that fix backplate. One at the top, other from below if my memory is still correct.

It might be easier to get at the screws if you can get the mirror off - plenty of sticky stuff remover might help but of course you risk breaking the mirror.

Thanks for your replies. I've tried to pry it off but it looks like it's had a stick on mirror put over a broken glass. So I'am thinking It's had a knock at some time and the base plate could have been glued in because I've pulled it pretty hard, certainly hard enough to pull it out of it's pivot plate. So with it being the off side I will have to live with it for the time being and if a complete mirror come available get that. Thanks again, Steve

Not pry it off, but just enough to get a screwdriver behind it to remove the fixing screws of the baseplate. Use a thin screwdriver!

Opps us Yorkshire lads all brawn no brains. I'll give it another go, and yes I might need another mirror if I continue as I am now. The thing is I can adjust the mirror by hand left to right and the motor adjusts it up and down and the mirror body is OK so maybe I should be happy with what I've got and just wind down the window to adjust. Thanks Steve.

Got the gear box out but broke the glass refitting. It was a stick on one and was bigger so I tried to release it to get to the screw underneath. The question I've get is I believe the units where from the Capri so will the capri replacement glass fit? The gear box now works OK but no glass. Thanks again Steve

Thanks for that, If you PM me your phone number I'll give you a ring and sort out a convenient time. It will give me an excuse to have a run out in the little car. Thanks Steve
