Hmm, no rivet inplace here, but seems like it could be some kind of plastic plug of some kind....

Looking at your first picture, the round object in the middle, looks like a place for the rivet. Try cleaning it out and see if there is a rivet, or plug, there.

Seems like there is just the plastic stud there, and no way to depress it without using some serious heavy tools. Or drilling it out.

Okay, after crawling out from under the car, I was wondering what to do next.....
Noticed that during the winter the mirror on the drivers side had started "drooping".

So, started from inside, removing screw and knobs, and pulled the whole assembly apart......

 Shocked
WTF??

Someone has done some seriously BAD repair on the mirror....
This is what I found.....





So, seems like I'm one up for some serious mirror repair/replacment...

Does anybody know of good ideas? I've seen that someone in the english Matra club have made some of the parts, but havn't recieved any answer from him yet. Also there is the South African firm.
How about unorginal replacments?

Politecnic sells this ones with adapters.

I had the Uno mirrors for some time, but also not a real easy job.


Some people mounted. this BMW mirrors but view-angle left is slightly to low.

The FSO mirrirs are perfect in view-angle (the same as the Murena ones) and are good lookalikes.
Needs some fidling at the interior.
If you don't want to spend much this is a good option.

I don't think the Matra Club part would completely solve your problem.  The Club only supplies the adjustment arm, that fits inside the barrel, and the brass rod.  The arm is broken and needs to be replaced, as does the brass rod, but your mirror also appears to lack the metal arm that connects the mirror body to the adjustment arm.

Hmm, I was hopingthe Matra Club had fixed both parts in there.....
Does anybody have a good picture of all the parts in the mehanism of the windows? I see imon has both the whole mirror and also the mechanism, pity the mechanism cost almost as much as the whole assembly....

And I've just attached the wrong one, the forum doesn't seem to work properly with Internet Explorer 8 or I'm having a bad day Sad
This is the one I meant, the part missing from Oetker's mirror is the arm that's hinged to the barrel on the right of the picture

Looks like there's no way in the forseeable future of fixing my existing mirror without paying an arm and a leg for it....

Checked with a local supplier(Thorshov Bil) for a Pug 309 mirror, he could supply(dont know how well it fits thou) but seems like Politecnic supplys them with a correct fixing plate. price here was 73€ and at they cost 55,64€

Oetker, The BMW picture is not showing. Do you know how they fit, and what model they are for?

I modified my post, its visible now.
They are from E30 BMW
Also not a straight fit.
You need to rasp a bit of the front down corner.
Also view angle left is a bit to low.
I have no pics from the inside.
The Murena is a bit difficult because of the view angles you need.
Especial left side can give problems as i noticed with the Uno mirrors.

Just borrowed a electrical mirror for a BMW E30, was a good bit from a pretty fit, so I think I go for the Politechnics Pug 309 replacment for the time being, considering a orginal replacment mirror when I get rich....

Hmm, could I get a picture request from some of you guys.....? Just wondering whats wrong with the parts of my car.....

The first one is how the wire comeing from the bonnet-lock(panserlås) to the transfer bar to the light pods. this is to prevent the bonnet from opening when the pods are flipped up. On my car the wire os not connected to the transferbar at al, just hangs loosely....

The other one would be of the attachementpoint of the transferbar. if you look at the attached video you can see how mine is "connected" or rather lack of it... seems like someone tried to make something of a rubber hose some time ago there....
