On my car, the bolt your referring to was at a very odd angle. Not at all straight in from the access hole like you would think. Yours may be the same.

It looks like your the first to tackle " bolt blocked by plate " on the mirror install. Most issues are usually covered in the forum.

You will be the go to guy when your install is complete.

The mirror attachments are always tedious. I had to remove my panels a couple of times. A bolt head was rubbing the window mech.

agree with the others about angle - my advice, get a set of T-handle wrenches with a ball end, it made it happen for me, I could not have done it with just small allens.

I can assure you it's not just the angle, I can visualize where the bolt should be by the location of the other two bolts and looking at the mounting plate on the replacement mirrors, and yes, you have to angle the wrench up and toward the front of the car, but the location is definitely blocked by a black plate. Tough to get good pics, but you can see it with the borescope. Sector111 refers to this plate on their website, but doesn't offer a solution.

I haven't tackled the door yet, I've been working on installing a pair of Spal fans on my I/C, I'll revisit soon.

My install

I fitted my mirrors today. After removing the old ones using the supplied Allen keys, I tried on the black vinyl but it showed up the hole as my car has been repainted and the paint was piled up around the hole. I had some body filler so filled the hole(s). I could not get the bottom rear bolts out past the window rails and dropped them both. I will retrieve them later. I did use a magnet on the Allen key wrench so as not to drop the others and this worked well. Finished up nicely and took a couple of hours.
The old mirros weighed 768gms the new one 270gms.

To follow-up on my installation "problem", the answer was, I was being an idiot. I had the window most of the way, but not all of the way down! The "plate" was just the glass, it looked like black metal when looking at it through the small access hole. Thankfully I had an ah-ha moment before I started taking the door apart, and I installed the mirrors without a problem. I'm happy with the mirrors, I think they're a nice change from the stock mirrors.

Any chance these will make a comeback? Best side view mirrors I have found to date.
