The full unit couldn't be easier, just 1 10mm bolt holds them on, the back cover and the glass are both pop-on items.

Re: Replacing focus wing mirror

hi, I too need to replace the driver side wing mirror on my "51" 5 door focus, but I am not sure where this "10mm" bolt is located (well i can guess where) but not how to get to it?
Do I have to remove the "electric mirror controles" from the inside door to get to it? If so, how do they come off?

Thanks for any help!

Re: Replacing focus wing mirror

A friend lend me the Hayes manual. Its quite simple.

On the inside of the car door you need to take off the "panel" that has the mirror controls on it (little knob in my case for electric mirrors).

It comes of relative easy use a screw driver and go in from the "back corner" of the panel and pry it open.

Once that is off, there is just one bolt that holds the whole outside mirror in place. JUST GO SURE YOU DON'T DROP THE BOLT!! down the middle of the door! I don't know if that can happen but it looks as if the bolt could fit.

Thats about it.

Hope this helps.

Re: Replacing focus wing mirror

depends what is broken, if its just the glass you can change that on it own.
If the back panel is broken (the plastic panel on the front, curved) can also be replaced on it own.

I think every thing else is a full new mirror, check ebay they have a fair few and quite easy to fit. Just check that you do not drop the main "screw" down the middle of the door.
