    Hi All

    Recently purchased my first BMW and I gotta say, very good drive!

    Having enjoyed the car for about 3 weeks, walking to my car from work, I arrive to see the wing mirror hanging by cables against the door! Not happy! As a temporary fix, i have taped the wing mirror back in place, and it is working fine. (Heated and electrical)

    My question is, is there anyway to fix this rather than replace the whole wing mirror?

    If not, is there any parts which I can salvage, such as the cover with the fins, the mirror glass (heated and electrical) and the motor of course.

    I am also a new-bee to car DIYs, however, with the aid of threads I successfully, installed a new armrest and centre console.

    All and any comments to help are much appreciated!

    Thanks

    did it just fall off?
    was it knocked by another car?
    does anything look broken on it?
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.

    You can use all the parts of the old one into a new or second hand one off ebay

    But most sellers sell them complete.

    328mark -i think some one had "purposely" broke it, how i don't know. there were no paint scratches or evidence that another car had hit it.

    shamM3 -so just to sum up...i will need to replace the actually body of wing mirror?
