Replacing damaged mirror indicator lens


Recommended Posts

Toyota quoted £78 for the lens and about 40 minutes labour.

I found the part on eBay for around £10 delivered.

So I've already bought and received the replacement lens but I'm struggling to remove the wing mirror cover in order to fit it.

I've searched YouTube for any instructional videos but not found anything for this specific model, all the other videos I've seen the cover seems to pop off with ease!

Admittedly I'm being extremely cautious but so far it feels if I'm any less cautious I'm going to cause even more damage.

This is on my my21 Corolla.

Does anyone have any useful tips?

Not sure about your car but how to remove the mirror cover is in the handbook of a C-HR since it’s part of changing the side repeated bulb.

That's good advice of course, thank you. 👍

I've just checked again and it's not in the handbook.

the cheap lenses are cheap for a reason £78 would make it a Led unit (ones that use a bulb are around the £40 mark)

the mirror cap has to come off what means popping the glass out (tilt the glass back and pop it off with a trim tool)

Found this. 

I think this is the method I'll use. Just need to order a trim tool set - not happy about using flat head screwdrivers.

I've checked, the part I received is definitely LED. 👍

Good luck in your endeavours.  I am not sure I would take the risk unless I had the skills to do so.

 

No local bodyshops willing to do it for you?

Loads in youtube about how to remove/replace side mirror/ covers and side repeaters for corolla 2019 onwards. 
will save you a lot to try it yourself.
