Can the mirror cover be removed?

Recommended Posts

I’ve got a couple of small chips on my offside door mirror.  I’ve tried touching them up but it’s not looking good so I’m going to get it repainted.  I’ve had a rough estimate and it’s not too bad.  Question:  can the painted part of the door mirror be removed for painting or is it best to leave it insitu and mask off the non-painted parts?

cheers

Always better to remove. Worth checking with your dealer, they are available as spare parts, pre-sprayed. In the states you can get them for $45 which might be the cheapest option, but knowing the UK it will be double that and cheaper to just get your one resprayed.

Wow, $45 is cheap.  I’ll check with my local centre what the price is - assuming said part is available in the UK.

Thanks.

£50 inc VAT from Lexus.  👍

Cheers Colin for the heads up as I didn’t know such things existed.

Excellent, not too bad a price. Just make sure you get it in the correct colour 😉

How easy is it to remove the housing?

 

Any instructions?

I’ll find out tomorrow when my cover is replaced.  I believe some just pop on and off whilst others are mechanical fixed in.  I’m hoping the NX is the former.
