Wingmirror glass fell off

Wed Jan 02, 2019 2:54 pm

Was driving along the other day and there was a loud clatter as the passenger side wingmirror glass fell out, catching the door as it went.

The heated mounting plate was left behind so it simply looks like the glue holding it on has failed. It now looks like this:

So a new one has been ordered from eBay and I gather it's a simple job to attach based on the YouTube videos I've seen.

Never had a car do this, but then again I've never had a car with a parking brake module totally implode or a 4x4 system be so fussy over tyres etc so I shouldn't be surprised I guess :(
