Replacement wing mirror & housing;
« on: January 31, 2021, 09:25:41 PM »
Being the daft shit I am; I was driving along, went to reverse right up against a fence when one of the kids decided to fight the other sat in the back;
Got a bit of a shock off the scream and turned a little ‘too much’ and cracked the glass, casing, indicator and I’m assuming the housing!
It’s bent back a little, so I’m up for some spares if anyone has one?
Colour is no issue.
It’s electric heated & folding, not electric folding though!

I know a few on here have plenty spares, but a few scrap yards local to me in the NE are trying to literally charge me a hefty HEFTY amount, but eBay seems ALOT cheaper, but heavy delivery costs.

Any good folks on here for spares kicking around?

I don't have one, but you can sometimes find the odd one that will let you collect on eBay if its local enough to make it worthwhile. Depends how much they are asking for shipping though.

Ah, just stick some duck tape over it and move on with life, we’ve all been there

I drive a Seat Alhambra 1.9Tdi which has 115bhp and an automatic gearbox.

I am happy to help you with all your questions. I am not a qualified mechanic but seem to be better at fixing my car than even the most experienced garages.

I have lots of friends here and very much enjoy talking with you all.

Always remember, a motor car is a serious tool and should be treated with respect. Put your safety first, always.
