    DTM Mirrors

    Chaps and chapettes,

    Had an unfortunate accident with my nearside mirror. Was washing the car down the hand jet wash at the garage and managed to tw*t the glass with the beefy ass hose and it's cracked - good times.

    Where can I get a brand spanker; and while I'm at it, how the frig do you get the glass out (they're not adjustable).

    Cheers - Chris.

    At a glance it looks like it'll be a rate bar stuard on the DTM's, Just wondered if anywhere sold the spare glass as is, or if i'd have to get a specialist...
    glass ..place? to make/cut a newen for me.

    the glass just clips off, they are adjustable, just push them in place.
    iirc theres three clips maybe 4. try warming the whole light up first and then the clips shouldn't break as they have more flex in them when they're warm

    DTM mirror glass is just clipped in, a good tug on the glass and it will pop out. IIRC ultra charge around £17 plus delivery for a replacement glass and they ARE side specific.
