Want to learn more about Wing Mirror replacements?

Read our short guide with information on costs, symptoms and more.

What does a wing mirror do?

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.

Can you replace a side mirror yourself?

Unless you are a qualified mechanic with the required skills, training and equipment to do the job, we strongly recommend a wing mirror replacement is only carried out by a professional mechanic. ClickMechanic can help get you a vetted and local mechanic to carry out the work. Just enter your postcode and your car's registration number at the top of this page and select the work needed to get an instant fixed price up front.

What are the symptoms of a faulty wing mirror?

If you are unlucky the wing mirrors can get damaged. Either the mirror glass or the casing can break or get scratched. The glass mirrors itself are generally straight-forward to replace. In some cases, the mirror unit might be damaged beyond repair and would have to be replaced completely.

Electric mirror units can suffer more complicated issues seeing as they will have various electrical components that can fail. Components inside might seize, with the result that the wing mirror cannot move.

How long will a wing mirror replacement take?

A wing mirror or door mirror replacement usually takes around 1 hour, but can take less or more time. Ultimately, the time that the job will take will depend on a number of factors, like your vehicle's make and model, year, as well as other factors. Select your car at the top of this page for information on job time and cost for your vehicle through ClickMechanic.

Lots of drivers have had a minor scrape in a car park, which resulted in a damaged wing mirror which had to be repaired.

Can I drive with one wing mirror?
