Door mirror indicators
« on: March 27, 2016, 02:59:31 PM »
The indicator lenses on my 08 galaxy ghia are going yellow.
Are they easy to replace without taking the mirror apart. TIA

You could try some t-cut on them. It should remove the yellow.

Sounds like what happens to plastic headlamps due to uv light and general crap from roads attacking it.

I had good results with some 1500 grit wet and dry then some G3 compound and finally finishing with a good car polish to protect them.
