Opel Corsa B 1993–2000 Service and Repair Manual: Exterior rear view mirror components - removal and refitting

Mirror glass

1. On all types, the mirror glass may be renewed separately.

2. Prise out the old glass (if intact) with a wooden wedge, and when applicable disconnect the electrical cables. Engage the new glass with the linkage, connect the wires if applicable and snap the glass home (see illustrations). Be careful when pressing the glass home: the sudden movement as the ball enters its socket may cause the glass to break.
