help getting a standered interior mirror - adam f
need a interior mirror for my car. i need a complete kit including its bracket that it sits in.
vw want just under £40 and so do eurocarparts.com. cant find any on GSF and ebay only has the mirrors. went to breakers and withhout smashing the windscreen, i cant get the bracket off.
currently got one of those sticky ones from halfords but in this heat it just unsticks itself and is a bit rubbish

anyone know where i could get one from apart from the above?

There must be an easy way to remove themat the scarppers, windscreen swappers do it all the time - presumably some solvent or other.

If it's superglue (cyanoacrylate) then I think acetone might do it - it helps when you've stuck your fingers together!

Sorry no idea where to buy a new one cheap - though presumably it doesn't have to be a VW one?

I do not think many people get windscreens from a breakers yard.
Be brave!
When at a breakers yard It always seemed strange to me that discarding / removing by what ever means to get to the bits you want is the norm but I soon adapted my approach.

do that in the yard that i use henry k and it wont be the owners dog that bites you........ ;-)
if you tell the yard person what you intend to do he will point out a windscreen that you can remove mirror from and the damage will be unimportant
yes i use scrapyard glass if i can ,my windscreen man goes to the yard removes it then comes to me ,it can save anything from £50 to the moon depending on car (korean stuff is mind numbingly expensive new)
the link to the suction mirror ,they still fall off over time specifically in the hot/very cold weather
when you get your new mirror youy want a dedicated windscreen mirror glue that comes with all the extra"s most factors will have a once use only kit (about £5 it is,seem to remember it was made by loctight.....

You have to smash the windscreen to remove it as they're bonded in, so noone will mind.
You could also try Autoglasses' skip!
Do you mean the metal clip/bracket that is bonded on the glass? I think these are installed at the screen factory, why is yours missing?

Well, I went to my local nation wide windscreen place and they gave me two sticky pads for nothing.
Two years later and the mirror is still in place.

Would it be easier to swap the whole windscreen out ?

They use a nylon thread to cut thro' the sticky pads;most manufacturers supply their own pads which are better than the ones supplied by factors.

Or a cheese-cutter type wire.

The ones I have seen these days don't use a sticky pad, they have a low-profile metal thing bonded on the glass with some glue you would need a chisel to get off, the mirror then clips onto this metal thing. I think this is because newer cars have heavier mirrors, espcially if the car has or is available with electric memory position and auto-dip.
