    I did a back to back drive of our C-matic and a DS BVH a few years ago. Quite an experience. Both are quite unique and surprisingly different, the CX perhaps more modern in many ways and rather...

    Yes, you know I'd never thought of twisting, but I'd not seen the fitting anyway. I hate touching door cards for all the obvious reasons, and my front ones are new/warped a bit ones, held on with a...

    Yes, I understand that but there is no big nut and no male threaded fitting on the mirror that would accommodate a big nut and extend through a big hole to fix the whole assembly! There's a...

    I'm totally confused now! I'll pull my left hand one off tomorrow - it is chrome, with a single grub screw holding the mirror to the base.... I promise a photograph!

    Yes, that's what I think too. It's the mark/shape on the rubber gasket under the base, but there was no big nut on the mirror I used, or the base. I'm puzzled, but definitely all I needed was two...

    Found the photos! The base is held on with two small bolts and the mirror slots into the base and is held by a single grub screw.

    I can't remember exactly, but the drillholes for the base wouldn't have exceeded 10-12 mm with a 7 or 8 mm bolt, something like that. It was an easy fitting job. I didn't reinforce the panel and...

    Aha. I have done exactly this! I found a LH driver's mirror on ebay in Europe (in Holland, in this case), so look globally. You can search www.ebay.fr too.
