Hi,

Ive had the cover to my wing-mirror smashed off :angry: , the actual mirror is fine (ie glass, mechanism, structure, etc). Its the actually blue cover.
Anyone know where i can get a new one?

Thanks very much

The same thing happen me and I got the cover and paint from the dealer at least you will be sure that your colour will be right.
You always could get the cover already painted but mush more costly

Its probably State Blue.

Paint color can fade over time though, so an off-the-shelf can may not be a perfect match. Best option is to get a can from a paint specialist who will make the exact shade for you. Last time I did this it cost about 8 for a 400ml can. Funnily enough, it was for my State Blue Ford Escort.

your ford dealer will be able to tell you the exact name of the colour on your car by checking the chassis number.

A new mirror back costs around 12 from Ford then painting. Get the paint made up at somewhere like Autopaint (if they still exist) and you'll get a perfect match.

Hi,

I ended up getting a mirror case from the ford dealer, in a 'prima' colour.
I put it straight on to protect the inside from the weather and have now got some spray paint.
However i cant get the bloody thing off now! :rolleyes:
The whole back casing comes away and i can see 3 small clips at top and bottom inside, but can get them pushed away
Any ideas?

Cheers
