Wing Mirror Issue - Budget fix? (Pic inside)

Postby FlooKy » Wed Dec 06, 2017 4:28 pm

Hello all

My Wing Mirror has recently snapped - see attached pic. There is no damage to the mirror itself but the metal that runs inside and connects to the door has broken.

I've been quoted from £160-£350 to fix this problem but figured with some strong glue I could probably fix myself?

Does anyone have experience with this issue? Am I right to think that it can be fixed with glue?

Any thoughts would be amazing

Thanks in advance

I put this all inside then used duct tape to keep the wing mirror in place while it dried . Takes around 10 mins to dry but 24 hours to fully dry , but now it holds up fine . Once it’s fully dry , remove the duct tape and you should be fine , this stuff is extreme weather proof , and very strong ,
