My offside wing mirror is loose and needs tightening. I see no external screw fixings so assume either the black trim or the blue body trim needs popping (see pic). But which one and with what? I don't want to try popping the wrong one with a metal screwdriver in case I cause damage.
Anyone got some advice?
