Re: Replacing wing mirror cover Scenic MK 3 DCI

The cover, without a doubt.

It should just press-fit, but I'd be inclined to add a few spots of a PU-based adhesive like Tiger Seal or Seam Sealer just in case any of the clips on the cover or for that matter, the mirror housing itself have been damaged/weakened.

Fit it on a dry day when you won't be driving it until the next day (a small amount of masking tape to keep it located until the adhesive has cured) will ensure a strong, robust & durable bond.



(needless to say, but if the cover needs painting, do this prior to fitting)

This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
