Imported Touareg - Fender Mirror Removal

Hi all,

Thank you for letting me join the community,

I've recently purchased a Jap imported 2007 Touareg 3.6L here in New Zealand

Like most Japanese imports they come with a pre fitted Fender mirror.

Now ive had a search around and cant seem to find anything in regards to removing it, Ihas anyone removed one before?
If so how?
How did you go about hiding the mounting holes?

Regards

William

I've never seen this issue mentioned before.

I think you will be the guinea pig on this one!

VW Touareg models are as follows:
Generation 1: T1 is model 7LA & facelift T2 is model 7L6
Generation 2: T3 is model 7P5 & facelift T4 is model 7P6
Generation 3: T5 is model CR7 [Not available in "VW Atlas" North America!]

By the look at the responses, looks like i will be!

by the looks of it, it'll be removed and i will glass up a small carbon cover to shape to the vehicle.

i'll keep this post active with steps of the process. to keep you all interested.

Hopefully this will help anyone in the same situation.

Cheers

A picture is worth 1,000 words, especially in this case of a "fender mirror". Post a pic of it for us to see.

It sounds like you will make a tidy job. As above, take a couple of before and after photos too.

Enjoy the new car.
