Hi all. Does anyone know how to replace the wing mirror casing with the light in an 04 beetle? Mine is cracked and have a replacement but don't know anyone who can change it. Thanks, Carrie

What exactly is a wing mirror?
The only mirrors are on the doors and inside the cabin.

The wing mirrors are the same as side mirrors (on the door), a common way to refer to those mirrors in the UK and elsewhere :)

Carrie: I do not know how to remove those, someone will chime in soon who has done it before. Welcome to the ORG :)
Well I have done it. And it is a PIA.
The mirror has 3 bolts if I remember correct. One of them is on the door hinge. There is also a screw that can hold you up till ya find it. It is under the door glass rubber seal. You will also need to take off the inside door panel. I think I had about 4hrs into it. I should note, when I say 4hrs, this was at my friends shop who is a master mechanic. If I had been doing myself, it would have been a lot much longer R&R. One of the hardest parts was fishing the wiring harness thru the door.
