VW Rabbit Mirror Signal (2004-2008)


We’re gonna replace the in-mirror turn
signal on this 2008 VW Rabbit The top cap of the mirror is held on by two
clips here and here. Just gently use a screwdriver to pry until a gap forms. There’s another series
of clips on the lower rear-facing rim of this cap. Just pull outward on that rim and lift the cap off. With the cap removed, gently wiggle off the two defroster leads, then gently pull back on the tabs that
hold the mirror on and remove the mirror itself. With the mirror removed, we get access to these two screws that hold the signal to the mirror mechanism. It’s a T10 torx bit, so back those
out. The signal is still attached to a black bracket. To get that black bracket off,
pinch this clip, and pry this clip and tilt the bracket
back, then twist around until it reveals the
cable on the back up a signal. There’s one final grey clip holding the
signal to the bracket. Pry that back out to separate the two and then use a plyers to pull the plug
out of the signal. Okay, you’ve seen how everything fits together so we’re going to speed up the reinstallation. Take your placement part
,which by the way should be able to get for about 10 bucks on ebay, plug that
back in. Let’s get the black bracket back in place. Scoop it around the bottom first,
then pull it up to the top. Snap in the two snaps…1…and… 2 Then position the new signal until it
snaps into place. Remember it’s got that one grey snap, so you might have to finagle
the wire little bit. Just feel around ’till you hear it click. Fasten the signal to the bracket with
the two T10 torx bit screws. Reattach the two defroster leads, and
snap the mirror back into place. Finally, let’s put the cap back on. Make
sure you listen for the clicks 1…for the front two clips, and…2 for the
series eclipse in the bottom rim. That’s it. Make sure everything feels snug, and enjoy your new turn signal.
