I think the metal bracket is underneath the plastic one on your windscreen. If you'l press the disangagement button (bottom side), you should be able to slide the plastic peace upwards (whith force).


armrest wrote:Thank you for the photos Nederbelg, that explains how it all works, I am going to take the sensor cover off today to see if the metal bracket is a already fitted underneath, very unlikely I think, where did you get the parts from, I am not having any luck with searching on Google, is the metal bracket fixed to the windscreen with epoxy


I didn't order those parts, they where in my Custom already. I swapped the factory mirror whith a mirror /camera screen one.
The metal bracket (which obviously was in my van already) was also part of the rear view camera screen set. I couldn't find the link for such a bracket again, but a year ago, i've seen them on Ebay. As i'am Dutch, i don't know the right search term for such a bracket. I've seen sets where a silicon based glue was used. Epoxy gets weaker whith higher temperatures, so i can imagine the mirror falling of in Summer.

Thank you Nederbelg, you were spot on, I pushed upwards and it came off easy enough, it was only there to support the cover, so I don't have to worry about sticking the metal bracket to the windscreen, all I need is the plastic 2 piece cover , I found this on Ebay and it looks like it's the right one, I will get in touch with the seller and see if he has the other half
