Lhs Wing Mirror 'mirror' Replacement

Recommended Posts

Hi folk's,

I am a new member as I have bought an IS200 Sport about 4 months ago now ... really nice motor ... but, as luck would have it, I have already had my wing mirror on the LHS mirror broken by a m/bike courier today coming too close to me ... didn’t get the registration though ...

I have google'ed for a replacement mirror glass and for the first time, have not had any hits on replacing the mirror glass only ... has anyone gotten the mirror glass and replaced it before, if yes, where and how did you do it ?

any help greatly appreciated ... ;)

if it's the heated one £65 from lexus to replace grab the mirror at the bottom and gently pull towards you it just clips in that's how a very nice lexus owner stole mine :tsktsk:

I now understand how your's was taken, its a simple task to pop out and replace ... but, it was only easy because of your information ... you were spot as well about the heated replacment - £71.80, vat inclusive, from Lexus Bromley ...

I quickly got into the habbit of folding my wing mirrors in when I parked up, even for short periods of times. Sounds like a costly lesson and replacement.

Have a look round the site for the instructions on making a mirror closure kit for your car that Geoffers came up with. The wiring diagrams in the workshop part of the site. That way whenever you lock the car the mirrors fold in.

I did it to mind rather easily and just thought it looked trick, never thought of it in a security way like this before!
