    I have a 2008 Adria on a Fiat base.

    On my recent trip to France and idiot bus driver decided he liked my lane more than his and cut across, clipping my wing mirror.:Doh::Doh: The result is a missing lens cap for the near side indicator. All the rest of the indicator is intact including bulb etc. I have ordered one from my local Fiat dealer. Are they easy to fit? I can't see any screws so do they just pop in, and if so which way?

    If just the lense, it should just pop in. I f replacing the whole mirror, there are three screws on the inside of the door.

    Thanks. It is just the lens cover. The lens itself complete with the bulb is still in there. Do I have to get that out first and if so to make it pop out do you put the screwdriver under the front or the back?

    Vaguely remember swiveling the mirror lens to expose the indicator and harness. Also try YouTube. Hope this helps, others will be along shortly. Idiot in a motorhome smashed mine.:thumb:

    Lens

    Hi

    I did this myself a few years ago. From memory there is a screw "underneath" somewhere - just have a feel about. I just can't recall any more but I remember using a tiny screw driver

    2 flush screws are behind mirror glass at back of lamp.can be done without need to remove glass if carefull removes lamp unit complete, witch I believe is what you will be supplied with.
    hope this helps glyn

    Had exactly the a problem when an inconsiderate French lorry driver broke my indicator lens.

    Angle the mirror glass as far as it will go to expose the inner edge of the casing and you will see the release screws. Once undone, the lens will come out. I had to replace the bulb in mine as well because the new lens was clear. A yellow bulb sorted it. :thumb:
