I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.My info is somewhat limited on your model here but I had seen no one else has responded and would like to see if I can help here.If at any time you feel that I cannot help with this please let me know.

Check for any clips or screws that hold the plastic housing pieces together needing removed to then access this.If this is or was already done or checked and you had no success let me know here so we can continue.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service, your 5-star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.I work on delivering the best answer and help here but in some cases, it can be difficult to do without seeing the vehicle.

Thanks Pete

I'm really very practically inclined and I have explored all options for removing the outer plastic housing of the windscreen mounted without resorting to force as I'm concerned that might snap important clips. I really need a Peugeot(###) ###-####expert.

If you can help me to day I'd be so very grateful as tomorrow I head to Australia for 12 days and is hate for the fluid to leak out and ruin the mirror plastic housing. I do hear it's quite toxic.I'm very practical and capable so I can follow perfectly what you direct.
