    Car part needed due to vandal, please help!

    Hello all

    Looking for a little help here. I have an 06 Astra convertible and overnight, a lovely human being (yeah right) decided to practice his kicking skills on my left side mirror . Sadly, the body coloured cover has disappeared and I am unsure where to find another one. Any suggestions would be gratefully received!!

    Thanks

    this happened to me and i went to vauxhall and they said you cant buy them by them self, you have to buy the complete mirror, i dont know if vauxhall was right, but i just bought the mirror brand new off ebay for £30 instead of Vx £120 but that was on a MK4 and am guessing yours is a MK5, so you might be able to get it from VX

    You were lied to Munkie, the coloured part is available separately (it's primed)

    If your convertible is a MK4 the part number you need to get it from Vauxhall is - 9142133. You'll then have to spray it the correct colour to match your car.

    Or, visit a few scrap yards to see if they have one the same colour, you can just clip on.
