Removing eccles mirror mount

Hi all 

I'm trying to remove the eccles mirror mount from the doors. What tool and tool size would be best to do this?

Thanks very much for any advice.

Is this a wind up?

Set of allan keys, set of spanners (metric and imperial) select spanner and allan key that fits.

Righty tighty, lefty loosey. Jobs a good un.

Not intending to be churlish, but I'm puzzled why you have to ask, I'd just make sure I have a decent tool kit and work it out myself....Halfords Professional 100 odd piece sets are good, and they have 'sale's now and again, and you get the Clubs 10% discount.

Joking aside, I was lucky to have a father who was very practical and a good teacher (Post Office telecoms engineer in the 50s / 60s) so gave me the knowledge and confidence to do most things from engine rebuilds to brick laying to plumbing etc

If you're keen to learn but just need some guidance then get in touch with your local rep and they will find a mentor nearby.

I'm south Leicester if thats any help?!

Regards

Just to add balance, if these are inherited with the car, perhaps CC does not have the original hinge parts

Can't for the life of me understand why you'd want to remove the brackets in the first place. 

Put a decent convex mirror on the bracket and it's vastly superior to the original junk from Caterham.

Stick them up for sale on here and they'll bite your arm off. Unfortunately I won't be one of them - fitted a new set brilliantly  made by "garybee" last week and I think they're absolutely awesome!

Although I can't see whats wrong with original Caterham ones?  Mount 'em correctly, adjust them sensibly, fasten the door and they provide a nice, clear, stable wide view to the rear.
