The Volkswagen Beetle’s complex power mirror construction makes it a somewhat difficult replacement project. The process is the same for all model years and may require an experienced do-it-yourself repair person. The project only requires a few basic tools.
Tools Used: Tools, Trim tool, Screwdriver, Wrench
Replace Power Mirror
Remove the Old Mirror
Disconnect the negative battery cable before you take the front door trim panel off the Beetle door. Remove all screws and clips and carefully pry the panel from the door. Use a door trim tool purchased from an auto repair store.
