Replacing wing mirror cover Scenic MK 3 DCI

Hi all, I recently tore the cover off my driver side wing mirror. It's currently taped together as all of the electrics still work but have been looking for a replacement. I have sourced a new replacement cover & also a second hand full wing mirror. I was hoping someone could advise me what would be the easiest to fit?

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.

HTH,

Paul

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

Thanks for the advice & the speedy response!! Not sure if I have damaged the mirror housing as well though so will need to check. if I have destroyed the housing, would you know if these are available to buy separately too?

I'd think they are possible to buy secondhand, but the price for a cover + housing > complete unit.

Do you still have the original cover?

Yeah, will need to check the extent of the damage tbh. Happened when I was on my way to work so just pieced together the bits & wrapped the whole thing in electricians tape to deal with later today.
