    Drivers mirror + idiots = not happy me

    Got up this morning to find my drivers side mirror drooping(pavement side, so someones booted it or something) the facia is not scratched but the bit that connects to the car is snapped, motor for moving the mirror glass still works fine, do I have to buy a whole unit or can I just get the black plastic bit.

    Thanks in advance.

    Idiots, i had the same happen to me a week before christmas but they smashed the mirror aswell! And not only did they do that they stole my ariel.

    Anyway firstly i believe you can just buy the part. Try on here first or go to a scrap yard and remove you yourself. You should be able to get one cheap. I was lucky that someone helped me out on here for a very cheap price.

    It p***es me off totally, what do they get out of it? Apart from a cracked chin if someone ever caught them doing it?

    Anyways, I've tried the local scrappy's, no luck. Was considering vauxhall dealership but can't renew my mortgage till may!!! Lol. But it's an option cause the car looks sh*t with it drooping.

    Same happened to me!! Was well pissed off, mirror and everything, £25 replacement off ebay, but if your only wanting to replace certain parts, a patent one might not be the best idea
    Scrappy or a breakers is your best option i agree!

    Go to a scrappy and pick up another in any colour, simply remove the colour coded cover from yours and reaffix to new mirror. job done.

    A lot cheaper than main stealer
