Was you driving at the time or someone hit them whilst closed?

Nope driving along on my side the road, round the corner comes some red vauxhall corsa over on my side the road. I swerve but bang and in my lap lands the mirror.

Stopped but they just carried on. No attempt to stop at all. Not sure how damaged their car is as just glass was on the road.

Wish I had got the reg but in all fairness it just happened so quickly. I think the first reaction is shock, then annoyed it has happened to a 3 week old car and well then I just thought I would come and seek the skills on here and try and come up with a solution. Think my fix has worked as it looks ok again ...well other than the glass missing from the indicator repeater, indicator bulb and cracked mirror.

 

With a little help from the post service they should arrive early next week from ebay.

The DIY repair is done and back to new - £25 total cost of mirror, indicator cover and bulb - and a little bit of time fiddling gluing the broken clip on the casing back down.

Good job. The wing mirror will probably have some other incident at some point in the future. Happened to my dads ccar when it was a month old. Needed a new mirror which was heated, folding and had a puddle lamp in it and some paint on the side of the car! Its had 3 in total over 11 years. So a little bodge won't hurt. ;)
