Our expert insights into wing mirror replacement

What does a wing mirror do?

Also known as side view or door mirrors, wing mirrors are one of the most important safety features on your car. Although they may not seem important, your wing mirrors keep you aware of vehicles, people and other obstacles around your car. Legally in the UK, you need two working mirrors and one must be the driver's side wing mirror.

What are the symptoms of a broken wing mirror?

Below are some signs that you may need to replace your wing mirror:

  • If your wing mirror is damaged and no longer provides an adequate view of the rear of your car.

  • If your electric wing mirror no longer moves or is stuck in one position.

  • If your driver’s side wing mirror is missing, legally you must have it replaced.

What happens during a wing mirror replacement on your car?

Our certified mechanics will:

  • Inspect the damaged wing mirror by removing the casing or panels.

  • Test the electrical systems, if the wing mirror is electric.

  • If necessary, they will replace the mirror unit, the mirror glass or both. If there is a fault in the electrics they may fit a completely new wing mirror.

  • Test if the mirror moves properly and ensure it provides a view of the car’s rear.

Our reviews

Takes a lot of stress away

I would definitely recommend this company: knowing someone was keeping an eye on everything to make sure I wasn't being overcharged for parts and labour takes a lot of stress out of having the work done. I felt really well looked after. Thank you Fixter.

Kathleen Hodge, West Yorkshire

Excellent service

Excellent service. On time to pick up my car & drop it back. Full service cost £179, main dealer quoted me £700-lots different!

Muhammad, Birmingham

Total game-changer!

Just had my MOT done through Fixter for the first time. It took about 5 minutes of my time in total to book, hand over the key, and get it back when the car was returned. So I was able to carry on looking after my 2 year old. Total game-changer!

Oliver Woodford, London

No need to drive to a garage

Can't get more convenient than someone turning up, taking the car from the house for its MOT and returning it a few hours later. No having to drive to a garage (often miles from anywhere or in the middle of an industrial estate) or hanging around waiting.

Darren, Pontefract

I literally cannot fault them

This is the 3rd time I have used Fixter and I recommend to everyone. It makes getting an MOT super easy for me. Everyone I speak to on the phone is incredibly helpful and polite, and they seem to be the most cost effective. I literally cannot fault them.

What does a wing mirror do?

Wing mirrors are one of the most vital safety features on your car. Although they may not seem that important, your wing mirrors keep you aware of vehicles, people and other obstacles around your car.

In fact, wing mirrors are so vital that according to UK law, all cars must have at least two mirrors that offer an adequate view of the rear of the car, one of which must be the driver’s side wing mirror. So if you’re unlucky enough to damage or lose a wing mirror it’s important that you get it repaired or replaced as soon as possible. Wing mirrors are generally straight-forward to mend. In some cases, if a wing mirror has been completely knocked off or damaged beyond repair, a new wing mirror may need to be fitted.

Electric wing mirrors can cause more complex issues and can be more complicated to 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 condition and intact at all times.

Hyundai

The Hyundai Motor Company (or Hyundai Motors) is a South Korean multination automotive manufacturer, founded in 1967, with current divisions that include Kia Motors and Genesis Motor.

Since arriving in the UK market, Hyundai has made a steady and consistent rise in sales, to the point where there are now over 850k of their cars on our roads today.

Well-priced luxury cars with a fantastic warranty

Predominantly producing an extensive range of smart looking hatchback cars of quality and price to compete with Ford, Vauxhall and Volkswagen, perhaps their rising sales figures can be partly put down to holding one of the best warranties for a new car in the business.

Their 5-year, unlimited-mileage warranty offers the peace of mind any new car owner would be thrilled to receive, given that most marques only offer 3 years with around 60k miles of cover.

Hyundai doesn’t solely offer a range of varying hatchback models; the current full line-up features tourers, coupes and of course, as the leading trend in today’s market, a selection of SUV models of varying sizes, trims and price tags.

Hyundai electric hybrid technology

Hyundai, as have most marques during the growth of new fuel technologies, has shown a strong entry into all electric and hybrid motoring. The brand’s Ioniq Hybrid model proved more efficient than Toyota’s Prius, the world’s first mainstream and possibly the most popular hybrid car on the road today.

Motorsport: Hyundai’s subcompact rally car

Entering motorsport in the late 1990s, Hyundai unveiled its Accent WRC (world rally car) to compete in the World Rally Championship. It achieved its first top-10 result in the 2000 Rally Argentina and continued to finish well throughout the season, but not quite well enough to compete with the top 3 or 4 teams.

In 2014, Hyundai made a return to world rallying after a 10-year absence, with the introduction of their i20 WRC; a rally car based on the i20 subcompact and was unveiled at the 2012 Paris Motor Show.

How often should a wing mirror need replacing?

The law, vehicle regulations and your MOT

Having working wing mirrors is a legal requirement on the roads in Britain. Failing to ensure all your wing mirrors are intact puts you at risk of being pulled over by the police, receiving a hefty fine and adding 3 points to your license.

What is the average life of a wing mirror?

There is no set lifespan of wing mirrors, and in reality they should only need to be replaced when they get damaged. Most wing mirrors are designed to snap back into place if they hit something at low speeds. However, sadly we all know it’s a common case to leave your car parked and come back to find your wing mirrors damaged. They’re the most likely things to get hit by passing traffic or bad parking offenders.
