Wing mirrors. A little help

I've been told that FL wing mirrors will fit a PFL. They mount up straight away away nd plug in the same... (buying a set of FL wing mirrors for my 08 a5)

Do you have to remove the door card to remove the wing mirrors? Anyone got a guide?

Thanks

Hello, yes they fit as long as its for the same edition so coupe for coupe etc...

Door card must come off,then it is just inserting the new witing clip into the door module. Door card is held in with 5 torx bolts then it "pops" off quite easy to do so.

Some of the torx are hidden under the door trim which also just pops out.

Sportback and Coupe's are the same wing mirrors. Convertible is a different mirror attachment and will not fit correctly.

I fitted a pair of folding coupe's door mirrors 2012 (FL) to a 2010 sportback (PFL), with no issues.

I think there may be different versions as I bought coupe ones for my sportback and they wouldn't fit.

Are you going power folding, as if so you need the high spec door modules and need to change the interior switch assembly as well don't forget?

Looks like the old rear view mirror issue with about 50 (0K 3) different versions.

Good luck
