Have you still got the driver's side mirror? I just trashed the housing on mine. Since your 155 is red and so is mine, you know it makes sense Mine has auto mirrors but since I only need the housing (red front bit and main black plastic surround) it shouldn't matter.
the casing on my drivers mirror is a bit scratched. Think it's too deep to polish out. Let me know what you think
To remove the casing, there is a small screw in the top left corner behind the glass. Some of the mirrors have more screws in other corners. You'll need a micro Philips to get in to them as the glass doesn't move that much to allow access.
You're not gonna be able to convert the mirror to electric I don't think as the motor is inside the mirror etc etc.
When I chenged the electric mirror on the V6, I noticed it looked nearly impossible to get into the motor due to the design of the thing. As you'll know the electric one has a multiplug hanging out of it. The manual one has cables and the lever attached which would probably have to be broken off to remove it all.
I'm pretty much certain that the part is the same for both. The actual frame of the mirror, the bit that holds the motor/mirror, is metal - the black plastic surround just screws onto it, and the front 'body-colored' bit clips/screws onto that.
I see a reference to the wheels: are they available, and if so what is the condition please? Also, what size/stud pattern, i.e. 4/5 and p.c.d.
Would they be suitable for a 1996 1.8 widebody - sorry to be so ignorant but you'll doubtless appreciate not all owners are clued up - well, follows the Alfa Romeo pattern doesn't it when you've tried to get through to someone at Slough who actually answers you.........
Maybe you could e-mail me please: Carrotsucker999@AOL.com.
Not sure what happened to this car in the end as it had a brief outing as a track car.....sold now I think
There is a chap on here known as RGWM, try sending him a private message, he'll have some wheels. The wheels will indeed fit as they are all 4-stud. Ideally you want wheels from a widebody car as the offsets will be slightly different and let the wheel sit too far into the arches. But, wheels from the later 145/6 will also fit and in fact they use some of the same wheels (dished teledials for instance).
....just remembered....I've forgotten about that item for you, many apologies
