I was wondering if anyone here could tell me how the black plastic cover (behind the rear view mirror) comes off and goes back on?

Ever since I had to have a windscreen replacement, the guy who put it back can't have put it back properly as the cover seems rather loose, while it wasn't before.
So because of this often I notice a rattle/squeaky type sound coming from it while driving, which is bugging me :D

I was wondering if this would be something to easily fix myself but am worried about breaking the rather fragile plastic part as I can't see how you take it off or 'clip' it into place?

Why not take it back to windscreen place to get them to fix it?
I could do this but if it is just a simple case of clipping it in a certain way or something else really simple I'd prefer doing it myself as it'd be a lot quicker.

The only reason I haven't messed around with it is because I'm unsure how it attaches/comes off and don't want to apply too much force and snap it, so thought I'd ask here first if anyone knew more about it.

If you do a search on youtube for car rain sensor removal it comes up with several videos showing how to remove the rain sensor in various cars.

I couldn't see one specifically for our model but I guess looking at how it's done with other cars may give you a good idea regarding how they clip together.

Good luck.

If it's loose after a new screen was fitted, it's likely that the windscreen fitter didn't know how to do it properly either, so taking it back there might not help.

This is a known issue. The numpty window geezer would have undoubtedly broke the molding as they always have done on my 508s.
I found it easier to just pay £8 - £10 for a new one from Peugeot than try to get the windscreen company to fix it.
They are easy enough to fit, just push them together and they clip in.

Without it being in front of me at the moment I'm not sure but do you need to remove the mirror before taking the sensor cover off?

And I'm assuming to remove the cover you reverse what you said (pull outwards at sides, and pull off)?

I may attempt removing it and then placing it back on if it's easy enough, but if it seems broken I'll enquire about a replacement :)

They just pries apart and that's where the clips break. You'll see where the plastic is in two parts. You'll need a little force with the help of a flat screw driver maybe. You don't need to remove the mirror.
