As with many other car components, over the years wing mirrors have developed from a rather simple solution and design into something much more complex and, annoyingly, more expensive to fix.

Can I carry out a wing mirror replacement myself?

Given the amount of electrical componentry inside a modern wing mirror, this can be a complicated job that’s often best left to an expert.

If you do decide to carry out a wing mirror replacement at home, you’ll need to ensure that it can be adjusted to provide a good view of the rear of your car. 

What additional factors could affect a wing mirror replacement?

Usually, the cost of replacing a wing mirror is down to the make and model, who you choose to do the work and where in the country you’re based, yet there are a few extra circumstances that could affect the price.

For example, electric wing mirrors can cause more complex issues and can be more complicated to repair or replace. They have various electrical components that can fail and will need to be rewired if you require a replacement wing mirror. As with any other safety component in your car, you should ensure that both your wing mirrors remain in good working order and intact at all times.
