Big problem, the chrome mirrors from InPro design I just bought, won´t fit!!!
And NO I haven´t bought wrong mirrors covers...it says on the package that it´s for the B5 97->
I´ve only tried the right mirror, but it won´t fit. The chrome mirror seems to be just a little to small/tight than the original one :mad: :mad: :mad:

Me and my dad have been trying for several hours, but it´s imposible!!!

Only thing my dad had to say is why I buy this after market junk...

Please help!!!

Actually they aren't junk. You problem is that the set you have is for early '97 Passats that had the stubby passengers mirror. Send them back and get an exchange for 98+

you really have to just force them, it seems. Mine were a pita, my fingers hurt for days, but I got them on.

Don't know why they were done in the US but they did stop midway through the 1999 year. I know cause I had an early eddition 99 and it had the stubby mirror. :mad: And later on that year they made it the same size. :evil:
