What You Need To Know When Buying A Wing Mirror.


Types of wing mirrors
There are a few different options when choosing the correct wing mirror for your vehicle. Some are manual or cable controlled and some are electric. Some wing mirrors have additional functions like a built in indicator, puddle light, temperature sensor and on some vehicles a built in aerial, Also some mirrors are power folding which is when the mirror will close in electrically by a button inside the vehicle or when the vehicle is locked.

There are some wing mirrors that also include a blind spot indicator when a vehicle or object is in your blind spot a light in your mirror glass will illuminate. This is now becoming a more popular feature on cars.

Another feature that has been introduced is cameras inside the mirror this works when reversing your vehicle and shows you the rear image inside the vehicle normally on a screen.

When you think you have located the correct wing mirror for your vehicle please take time and read the description to make sure the functions of your mirror match the feature list for our product.

Electric and heated wing mirrors
If your mirrors are electric, they will also most likely be heated. This is a standard feature for most vehicles. These are operated by a switch, which is usually located on the driver’s door or near the steering wheel.

Heated Wing Mirror


Manual cable-controlled wing mirrors
These wing mirrors are non-electric, not heated and are operated by a lever inside the vehicle near the window.

Manual Adjusted Wing Mirror


Manual wing mirrors
Manual mirrors do not have electrics or even a cable to adjust the mirror, it is a case of adjusting the mirror by hand, these mirrors are not common and are usually only fitted to a few selected Van models and older vehicles.

Power Folding wing Mirrors
Power folding mirrors were once reserved for higher specification vehicles but can now be found on most cars these days. An easy way to tell if your car has power folding mirrors is if they automatically fold when you lock the car. Although this isn’t the case for all power folding mirrors as some may need a button to be pressed from inside the car.

Mirror indicators is a good way of showing other motorists your intentions in cases where they cannot see your front or rear indicators.

Wing Mirror Legalities


In accordance to the construction and use regulations of 1986, all vehicles first used after 1st August 1978 must have at least two mirrors that offer an adequate view to the rear of the vehicle. This means that if the interior mirror is damaged, obscured or missing, both of the exterior wing mirrors need to be intact. Also, when considering vehicles first used after the 1st August 1978, it is commonly required that one of the fully operational mirrors be the offside mirror. Having a damaged offside mirror will also result in an MOT Failure.

In light of the above information, it is not illegal to drive without a nearside mirror, provided the other two mirrors are intact. It is important to be aware although not illegal it is likely the Police may stop you to inspect the damage or lack of mirror, which could lead to a notice being issues requiring you to repair the damage within fourteen days.
