    I couldn't find anything on the forum, but apologies if this has been covered elsewhere. I've a new internal rear view mirror on its way from euromerc, and I'm looking for a diagram showing the correct procedure for removing/fitting. Thanks in advance.

    Removal pull down HARD (it's held in by a couple of spring pins - have a look at the new one when it arrives).

    Refitting - one of the sprung pins has a grove in it - there is a little spring clip that you can engage in the grove - this makes re-fitting easier as it holds one pin back (but then gets released as it's pushed home).

    Thank you for the diagrams, Malcolm. My mirror has no sensors built into it, and just has the manual adjustor for dipping the mirror. Do you think I'd still need to remove the OCP first?
