Once again, Hello to you all.
I'm sure this has come up on here millions of times before but I can't find owt. Now, I know 155 door mirrors are known to be knocked off by other drivers, but I thankfully haven't experienced it yet.
This is odd, I had to park my car on the road the other night (usually in garage) and thought I would fold the door mirrors in to help prevent above mentioned scenario. To my horror, the passenger side mirror just came off in my hand!
The metal bracket inside which gives the mirror it's strength broke in half like a biscuit. It's made of some sort of alloy which has become very brittle over the years. Maybe also because I have hardly folded my mirrors since owning the car (6 years) and this caused them to jam in their position.
Well, I now have the task of finding a suitable replacement. I've done all the usual searches and am surprised I can't find any new ones, anywhere. Does anyone know where I can get this item? Colour is not important as it will obviously have to be sprayed, or I may get some carbon fibre covers if local spray shops are being difficult.
Any help will be greatly appreciated as always
