Left wing down a bit.....

Much appreciate some suggestions on the state of my wing .... mirror.

My 2002 model 156 has developed a loose mirror housing.

The dealer has suggested it is broken but it is not scratched (hence no chance of impact from passing motorcycle)and the innards are firm and solid and functioning OK, just the plastic housing is very loose, about 5mm of play.

As warranty is about to expire (warranties in Thailand are very short) any ideas i.e. missing screws (in the mirror that is), defective design, advanced tin worm ??

Any suggestions apprciated.

Many thanks,

Julian Lord

I'm afraid some w4nker probably walked into it when it was parked.... wouldn't leave scratches, but depending on the speed/body mass factor, could break it!

Sorry mate, don't think your warranty covers that!

As simple as that?

I am used to mirrors which absorb impact from passing vehicles and spring back again, are they really that fragile?

We are covered by insurance if it was an accident (one of the beauties of Thai insurance is that almost everything gets fixed without fuss. Scratches fixed for GBP40 etc.) but I would be a bit miffed if it was just fragile.

Anyone else any ideas?
