Lower mirror trims??

Post by Glowstone » Mon May 03, 2021 1:06 pm

Hi all,

Sorry for being dim, though I'm looking online for a. Lower drivers mirror trim and most of the examples say they are for LEFT hand drive only...

Surely they are the same regardless of what side the wheels on???

Any thoughts?

Depends... the newer “life” type mirrors are different.

Give your local VW Commercial parts dept a call, you’ll find they are not more expensive than the likes of eBay or Autodoc. I bought my left hand side mirror from VW, same price as some of the online resellers.

Just checking, which part are you referring to? The mirrors on the Caddy are different sizes left to right - taller on passenger side (and might be different length as well) - and so a LHD version will be the other way around and so parts from them might not work on RHD version.

These are the covers to illustrate what I mean

and this is an image of LHD caddy

Tha ks for the replies guys..

Bloody hell... I never even noticed that about the mirrors.... Weird 🤣

I meant the small section at the bottom with 2 screws through it.... I think I may give VW a ring although they will probably refer me to TPS who apparently are trialling a "trade only" platform... Which is rubbish 😒

Did you mean one of these? If so it might be helpful to know it’s the same on a Transporter T5. They shouldn’t be that much from Vw commercial direct or TPS.

Hi @bigdee181, I actually want to do the same. Did the new EU mirror work fine or did it show any error?
