    WING MIRROR GLASS REPLACEMENT
    on: Dec 04, 2018, 01.18 pm

    On Sunday I allowed myself a bit of pride in the fact I successfully replaced the left hand heated grip and installed a Sat Nav mount on the instrument panel.  OK,  a simple job for all you mechanically minded peps out there but for me, who  can't tell the difference between a screwdriver and a spanner I was pretty pleased with myself.

    They say pride comes before a fall.    :157:

    W went out for a quick spin this morning, just to try out the sat nav position and make sure the heated grip was working.  Good on both points. Stopped off on the way home for the obligatory bacon sandwich and cup of tea.    Thinking to myself "what a wonderful world" I got two hundred metres down the road when I noticed my right hand wing mirror glass was cracked.  How this happened is beyond me, I had the bike in full view during my tea break. 

    Question 1:  at long last.

    Can I replace just the glass or do I have to buy a compete right hand side of the bike?   

    Question 2:  how do I remove he broken glass and install the new piece. 
    Question 3: can anyone tel me he difference between a screwdriver and a spanner :138:

    Cheers you all.

    If you check the parts schematic, here in The States the RH Mirror Assembly is shown as part # T2060072, and sells for a very reasonable $80. If you look at the parts breakdown on the schematic, you can get an idea of how everything goes together. A shop manual would likely give you a better idea.

    Either way, its all part of the learning experience! The more of these projects you tackle, the more confidence you acquire. There will however be the occasional bump in the road...  :038:

    I only know the answer to question 3 as I have been a spanner many times

    When thrown, the screwdriver more easily enters the drywall...

    The Mirrrors are not designed for just the glass part to be to replaced.  :110:

    Removal of the Mirror assembly requires the Instrument Fascia to be removed.

    See this article for details of how to do that :

    HOW TO: Fitting Triumph Sat Nav Mount .......

    The securing bolts for the mirror are then acccessible -
    Remove the three lock nuts and washers then remove the Mirror assembly. 

    New Lock Nuts "should" be used when refitting - tightened to 4 Nm.

    Cheers  :821:

    Blast,   :157:   I've only just removed and refitted the Instrument Fascia and promised myself I won't be doing that again.    I do have auxiliary mirrors so  no problem riding but I guess I should have stock mirrors as well. 

    Thanks Coconut.

    Have you checked out Halfords?

    They have a good stock and might have the glass size/shape for the SE... :084:
