Hello everyone - first off if this is the wrong place to post my question please let me know, but here it is anyway:
Some helpful drunk kicked my wing mirror off along with a few others in the street. It was completely sheered at the circular arm section (glass intact!), so some kick. The dealer wants £490 inc vat, not keen when it could happen again, and its a lot of money to spend on a wing mirror! I can find the part on ebay but there is a wire sheered off, and it doesn't look like the wire comes with the mirror unit on the ones I can see.
Anyone know their wing mirror wiring well? I changed a wing mirror on my partners Ford Ka and on that the wing mirror electrics came from the mirror and linked to a connector block.
I have found a guide on here showing to take off trim etc but just not sure if buying a replacement wing mirror unit is going to be enough to let me have a go at this. I'm loathe to buy a second hand unit for £100 and then find I can't do it and have to spend another £500 with the dealer!
Any advice / thoughts appreciated.
