How to change the glass of the side mirror on VW Golf MK6

DIY, change the glass of the side mirror on your VW Golf MK6. This is the model produced by Wolkswagen between the years 2009 and 2012. This is a very simple replacement that you can do in a couple of minutes, without any tools.

     First of all, you will have to work to remove the old glass. If the mirror is broken, the best way to do it is by using hand gloves, or a flat blade screwdriver, to avoid harming your hands. If the glass is intact, the removal process is very simple. You just have to insert the fingers behind it, as you can see in the picture below and pry it out.

     After you do it, you will notice two electrical wires, like the ones seen in the image below. You have to disconnect them in order to remove the glass completely.

     Now is the moment to install the replacement. First, reconnect the two wires, because they heat and defrost your mirror and then align the glass onto the plastic support on the mirror and push on it until it is secured. These are the simple steps you have to follow, if you plan to remove and replace the glass of the side mirror on your VW Golf Mk6. The video tutorial below was made to show you the replacement in detail.
