Driving to work last night, I was about get in the fast lane of the A12 to overtake a lorry when I looked at my offside mirror and it was gone! Don't know when it happened but it was at some point from my house to the dual carriageway.

Anyway the mirror itself, and whatever it is that keeps the mirror in the casing, is gone and needs replacing asap. I knew the casing was cracked and had been bodged by the previous owner using some kind of glue, but I thought I could put it off for a while.

Obviously at some point I'd like to replace the whole unit because that ugly crack looks awful. Anyone got any idea where to get hold of one? Are there any specialist Barchetta scrappies? Will Fiat supply it?

If that's looking like it'll take a while I'll need to replace the mirror glass and the holding unit for the time being, which I imagine shouldn't be too hard. But from that photo, does it look like another mirror will fit in and be secured easy enough?

Anyway yeah, I'd appreciate any comments/help etc (y)

I have a 96 model btw, without any electric mirror adjusting.

PS Anyone know offhand which section of the manual replacing the wingmirror is in? Can't find it anywhere in the 'Bodywork' section

I might have one but its red or silver.

I think I might give DTR a call and see if they can track down a green one but if one doesn't turn up soon I might well get back to you Doc (y)

I take it a body shop would be able to spray it the right colour

I could paint it for a few ££ if you get real stuck. Take a look at my fiat forum picture album and you will see I painted a mirror a few months ago.

I've got both mine still, but again they are silver rather than green.

If you want one, PM me and make an offer.

Cheers

Doogal.

Thanks guys - I'll try and chase a green one up off ebay.de to save messing about with getting it repainted for now (y)

This is what the mirror inside mount parts look like.


Ps Someone also asked about a clock a while back. This is the one I have kicking around, its not perfect but works OK.
