What does a wing mirror replacement involve?

Having a working wing mirror on both the driver’s and passenger’s door has been a legal requirement since 2010, so you’re risking a fine of up to £2,500 and three penalty points added to your license.

When you are missing a wing mirror or the view is obstructed by a crack, you suddenly realise what a big blind spot this leaves you in your all-around vision from the driver’s seat.
