Frequently asked questions about wing mirror replacement & repairs

Read our answers to questions about wing mirror replacement costs, symptoms and more.

The wing mirrors on a car serve to enhance the vision around the car and enable the driver to see what is behind.

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. This is a clear example when a delay in getting your car fixed with a straightforward repair could easily cost you more than actually getting the work done.

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. Having a missing or broken wing mirror makes it much harder to keep up with what is happening behind you, and potential hazards approaching you from the back - a fast-moving motorbike, for example.

For safety’s sake, you shouldn’t delay getting your wing mirror repaired when you know it’s needed.
