Wing mirror

Recommended Posts

I think my wing mirrors are on the wrong side, in my last car the mirror with the dot's on it that enables you to look further was on the drivers side but on my Fiesta it's on the passengers side, is this correct?

It makes it awkward when reversing and pulling in after over taking.

Mine is the same and I do find it difficult to get used to the dots on the passenger side.

Yes they are all like that. I bought a little blind spot mirror for the drivers side.

With everyone being the same I think it must have been my peugeot that was on the wrong side all along, after all they couldn't be bothered to change the wipers round always had a blind spot when it rained, passenger could see great B)

I noticed the blindspot mirror on the wrong side of my wife's 59 plate titanium. I complained to Ford customer relations about it and basically told me tough. A month later i was in the dealers and noticed that Ford had now put them on the correct side(drivers). So i had a moan at the salesman who sold us the car and he thought it was totally ridiculous why Ford had put the blindspot mirror on the wrong side. The salesman was really helpful and chased the issue through the service dept. They ordered and fitted a new drivers side wing mirror glass with the blindspot mirror on under a warranty claim.

Its not right so complain to your dealer.

Mine has one both sides :)

I think that on the left is ok, you can see all you need to see with right mirror and then will get anything it misses with your blindspot check before you move away :)

On my 58 plate Mk7 I only had the dots on the passengers side, on my 10 plate Mk7 I have the dots on both sides.

I *personally* dont find the 3 door Mk7 an easy car to reverse park anyway (esp compared to my 5 door Mk 6), also I am paranoid about scuffing my 17" alloys ;)

Only on the passenger side, March 2009 build IIRC. The cars at my local dealer have it on both sides, as does a friends 10 build Fiesta. Will mention this to the Ford dealer, thanks for the heads up :)
