As others suggest, there was some filing to do.
My car door has a locating hole, half way between the 2 screw holes for the mirror. The mirrors that came off had a pointed peg, of I guess 5mm diameter.
Now, the mirrors that were supplied indeed have the same peg, but surrounded my a crescent of raised metal the same height as the peg, maybe 10mm tip to tip.
So, if your car door has a locator hole that would take a 5mm peg with a bit of play, you'll need to buy a small metal file and some elbow grease. Anything bigger, it might be made to take the peg/cresent arrangement.
Perhaps someone can confirm whether the supplied peg/crescent is for a mk2 or mk3???
I've ordered before from MX5 Parts and always been happy with the service, especially the quick delivery, but this is disappointing. My MX is my main form of transport, so when the wing mirror dropped off, quick delivery was essential... making a botch job of fitting a brand new component wasn't!
Also, they don't come with replacement bolts, so if yours are rusty or corroded, don't expect replacements.
