It almost sounds like a huge pop rivet. Never been up close to the passenger side of a '66, but if you don't find a bolt or nut on the other side, or can't even get to the other side as I surmise, you will probably have to drill the center out. If it is a rivet, it will just fall out after this procedure. If it falls out, behind the plug, the factory should have welded in a threaded bolt for mirror attachement. Your mirror should screw right in. Also, when putting in a mirror, try not to go paint to metal. Go the plumbing area of your local hardware store and buy a rubber O-ring to slip over the threads of your mirror. It'll save your paint. Once again as I have no experience with type3's this early, this all just guess work, so tread lightly on conjecture. ---------- > From: J.L.M. <firstname.lastname@example.org> > To: Type III VW <email@example.com> > Subject: pass. side door mirror > Date: Monday, February 23, 1998 10:14 AM > > Hi, > > I now have a mirror for the passenger side of my '66 squareback. > Could somebody who knows please answer this? > > On the door, there is a round plug.
