Yes some clown has hit my wing mirror on the road, smashed it it pieces and typically driven off.

Now I should be thankful they didn't hit the side of my car but I now have a broken wing mirror. I have some of the bits but not all of them and the clips are broken.

Does anyone know roughly what Ford charge to fix this?

Also the internals still appear to be find so can I just buy the outer casing and a new mirror and indicator unit?

All help would be great.

I've bought the clear lense indicator unit and outer painted cap seperate for around £50. Easy to fit and replace yourself :) if you go to ford parts department they'll order them up for you.

Also the mirror is only around £12 on ebay but might not be expensive from ford either to get them all together. Hope this helps

Oh thanks - so can you buy all the parts separate or does it have to be a whole new mirror? Looking on ford parts direct they are quite expensive. The fold part still works fine and well I am sure I could spray / touch up the blue paint on the top of the cover myself.

 

Next question is how do I get to the wing mirror to take it off as those base clips are broken.

Question;

 

Would this be the exact replacement as seems to suggest it is from the reg plate?

Yes that is the correct full mirror, you could salvage the mirror glass, indicator lense unit etc from that if your happy to touch up the painted cap yourself :) otherwise yes ford sell them all individually including a new painted cap.

Well if that is the correct mirror then it would make sense to buy a whole new one and then get ford to sell me a new blue cap - as I cant see the parts I need from Ford being cheaper than that?

 

Any idea how I get to the mirror and how easy of job it is to do?

But you said your wing mirror unit assembly is okay ? If not then yes buying that will be cheaper. The painted cap is around £40 from ford on it's own. The clear lense around £10-£15 on it's own then the mirrored glass around £10-15.

The mirror just pops on, the wing mirror unit itself is bolted on and requires removing the trim inside the car to get to it.

Make sure it's not an electric wing unit, otherwise that linked one wouldn't powerfold.

Thanks. Yes it is a power folding unit. The problem is the casing is broken on the base of the mirror, now does all that strip down or is it one solid unit?

 

Im thinking if I was to buy that mirror, which im assuming isnt powerfold, can I just strip the old unit down, replace the plastic housing and rebuild again or is this way more complex than what my mind is thinking?

As In the picture the housing is a compete unit I'm afraid, would be harder than you think to start stripping and making a non powerfold a powerfold.

Best bet would be to purchase a powerfold second hand and then get new cap,indicator lense and mirrored glass and it'd look like new :)

OK now embarking on a bit of DIY first to see if I can limit the damage in the short term. Just glued some of the clip holders back in place. 

 

Need a new mirror and indicator unit for sure, however the scratches have actually polished out the cover so if it goes back together I could have done a good salvage job.

Thanks Nath for your help on this.

 

Looking on ebay little confused at what will fit and what wont. For example would both these parts fit my wing mirror in question?
