How to remove mirror on 996


Recommended Posts

Hello,

I few days ago I noticed that the rubber which surrounds the black (triangular)panel on which the mirror is mounted no longer neatly fits. At the very top the rubber is even a little torn. When I close and open the door on the left I notice that the rubber fits too tightly. I have already slightly adjusted the door striker plate. I have also noticed a little rust.

Now I want to remove the mirror, the panel and, of course, the rubber to see what I can do.

My car is a '99 (November) C4C.

Thanks for your help,

jo996

It's really confusing to understand what you want to do.

To remove mirror, take out the interior triangle pastic piece, then you should see screws that fasten.

What is the problem exactly? I am unable to help bc I can't understand what you mean. Sorry...

Hello Djantlive,

Thanks for your reaction. I'll try to be more precise.

I already took out the two screws, but the mirror did not come off. Perhaps I should have given the mirror a stronger pull. Are you quite sure the mirror is only held by these two screws? What should I do? Pull harder?

OK, suppose I succeed in removing the mirror, then I also (if possible)want to remove the exterior triangle plastic piece. This plastic piece is surrounded by rubber. Somethig is wrong with the tip of this rubber. It no longer covers the exterior triangle plastic piece, so I guess that's where water can seep through.

I can push the rubber back over the plastic, but each time I open the door, it comes off again. I guess something is wrong, but the rubber will have to come off, so I can see what that is. Also at the bottom of the exterior black plastic piece I can see some rust developing. I have already sprayed this with Tectyl (I hope you are familiar with this product), but I would really like to find out what is wrong. If there is one thing I can't stand it's rust.

Thanks,

jo996
