Great I managed to take some photo's will post up asap cheers Arctic.
Mirror with the glass remover which clicks on by four clips round the backing plate.
Wires removed from the heated mirror glass
corresponding circle holes which line up with pegs on the reverse of the mirror glass.
Note the back plate lines up with the claws behind the plate
This centre circle corresponds with a flat knuckle at the rear which holds the centre in place you will see this further on later.
Here you can see the peg/domed clip that helps the mirror move in and out also up and down.
You can now see these pegs with ball joint now I have removed the back plate which just pulls forward and off.
In this photo you can see where the pegs locate into the motor of the mirror
Also the centre clip circle I gave reference to earlier
The pegs also pull out of the back plate as here in this photo.
The peg as a retaining spring on the end of it's claw as you can see here.
This peg is pushed over the locating peg that is in the motor as here
It is these pegs that can sometime be pushed into far maybe by knocking the mirror, it could be pushed in by cleaning the car who knows, but once it as and then some moves the mirror back into place the mirror glass can and does pop off this peg and its dome knuckle it is then that the mirror will not go in or out or up and down.
With the back plate removed you need to remove the peg off it locating peg in the motor of the mirror.
Remove both if they did not come off when you removed the back plate, I made sure these stayed there so I could do the how to.
The pegs now need to be pushed back into the mirror back plate they can only go in one way as the dome knuckle as fins on the edges of them and slot into the
cut outs on the back plate.
Make sure both are pushed in firmly
You can now offer the back plate to the mirror motor keeping the pegs lined up as you do so.
not forgetting to line up the centre clip also
Clip one in at a time you will not need to force it, if it does push to far back tease it back forward.
Make sure both domes are clipped into the back plate and the centre is also clipped and pushed home firmly, with this done you can now replace the mirror glass and connect the wires the mirror should work fine now cheers Arctic.
The above was worked out between trebor (Rob) and myself when we looked at his power fold mirror these photo's were taken later on a spare mirror I have.
