DIY, replace the glass of the left side mirror on your VW Bora if it’s the model manufactured between the years 1998 and 2006. This replacement is fairly simple and you can make it in about 5 minutes. You won’t need any tools, you can use at most a flat blade screwdriver, if you find it easier.
The first thing you have to do is to detach the old glass. You can do this by inserting your fingers behind it, as shown in the next picture. We recommend you to wear a pair of gloves to protect your hands.
If you really need to take out the glass in one piece, you should act carefully on it. Pry it slowly using a flat blade screwdriver, because if you apply too much force on it, it will surely break. After you detach it, you will come across two wires, as shown in the picture below .
Unplug them and remove the glass completely. Now you can install the replacement. Reconnect the two electrical wires used for heating and defrosting the mirror. Align the glass properly and press on it using your both hands, one hand placed on the plastic cover of the mirror and one hand on the glass. This is all you need to know if you have to replace the glass of the side mirror on your VW Bora made between the years 1998 and 2006. You can watch the tutorial below for a detailed presentation about the replacement.
