I'd just like to add, when you do the glass mirror removal, you could use that opportunity to replace the outer shell/cover with a crome one (like C4's, DS3's and the newest C5 CrossTourer have) ... The part number in case you need it is 9425AY (you'll usually find that it is related only to DS3, but several Citroen cars have the exact same outer mirror as well) ...

Could someone reupload that mirror removal guide? On mine other mirror is bit loose between mirror's foot and cover, so I think I have to remove mirror-glass and tighten screws inside mirror cover?

Ah, that's interesting as my driver's door mirror wobbles at B. I didn't realise it was a Citroen "thing".

The passenger door mirror has its own problem though. When in parked position the casing touches the door on the vertical piece around the quarterlight.

Ok, the reason I asked is there is a long procedure and I wanted to get the right bit before posting as it will take a little while to format - I have seen somewhere it mentioning 'removing the headlining' on removing the mirror! That sounds totally bizarre - but I'm thinking you will need to remove the mirror to get to the insides now anyway!

Watch this space and I'll get something together.
