Do you mean the mirror glass lens is broken?

If it's the glass part it's probably something like THIS

I haven't had to do this on the Jimny but replaced a heated glass mirror on my SAAB - and that had a nightmare-to-reach spring-clip like THIS ONE which you had to get at through a gap with thin screwdriver

ALSO HERE

I'm sure someone else on here must know - this would be a really good article to add into the WIKI


IF IT AINT BROKE, KEEP FIXING IT UNTIL IT IS

C'mon guys - somebody here must surely know how the mirror is held in on the Jim?

If nothing is forthcoming you might phoine a Suzuki dealer or - failing that, have a look on YouTube for other Suzuki models I'd guess the method likely to be the same/similar

First thing to check if you got one from fleaBay is check the feedback score of the vendor - this will go some way to indicating whether the heater element will work!
I replaced my SAAB mirror with one from eBay and it was fine. I tried to find who it was that sold it to me but it was so long ago that the eBay record doesn't go back that far otherwise I could have given you a recommended vendor :(

The mirror glass should turn up with it's plastic backing plate attached. The backing plate has four small sockets which push over a load (4) of balls in the case.
Lube the ball/sockets with dish soap (fairy liquid) as it tacks up over time and your mirror won't fall out at the first bump.
When it comes to popping out the old broken mirror spray a little water inside the housing and gently prise it away with a couple of decorators flat blades.
All this should make sense when you have the new part in your hand.

When you write your post, below the box you are writing in, is a button that says 'Attachments'

Make sure the cursor ( that you are typing with ) is where you want the picture to appear by clicking in a clear area below your text

Now click on the "Attachments" button and then the "+Add Files" button. (this will open up your computer files).
Find the picture in your files that you want to add, then click 'open' and it should then upload your picture.

If you want the picture inserted in the text rather than remain as a thumbprint, then click the " insert all " or "Insert" button adjacent to the red "Remove file" button.

And finally hit the green "Submit" button found a little lower down

Hope all that makes sense!
