If the mirror, that is currently on your car, has not already been changed to the one in the photo it may require you to make a new hole in the door for mounting this mirror. The base of this mirror will cover the old hole so it will cosmetically look clean. No Bondo, filling or painting is required after this mirror is installed.
Will not fit on the right hand side of the car Mirror Adjustment Note: In order to obtain mirror adjustment one should note that there are 2 distinct rotational movements of the mirror. One movement is 360 degrees. The other movement is 20 degrees, fore and aft which changes the pitch of the mirror in relation to the pedestal. The firmness of the pitch adjustment is controlled by a spring inside the mirror housing. Be careful rotating the pitch adjust. A "massage" type movement is preferable rather than forcing the pitch of the mirror which can bend the back plate.
There is visible parting line from the Zamac mold on the pedestal of the Nissan mirror and this has been a bone of contention among Z car owners and Roadster owners for years and there is not a damn thing anyone can do about it as Nissan will not and has not changed it having been made aware of the problem by the world populus for years. The problem has become progressively worse in the past 15 years as Nissan as either, allowed the company that makes this mirror to continue to produce the product with this problem or refused to correct the problem by paying the company to service and repair the tooling.
