Common car wing mirror problems

If four kinds of problems occur to your wing mirror, it is time to get it fixed.

The casing of your wing mirror, most importantly the glass is broken

This problem is usually divided into two situational parts. First is if only the glass of your wing mirror is broken, cracked, or chipped. This situation will be handled easily if you only consult a professional because they will replace the old glass with a new one. This way, you will save money for a whole unit of the wing mirror.

The second situation is if the entire wing mirror unit is broken, or cracked that it looks very bad. This way you will have to visit the professionals and they will change the entire wing mirror unit. This can be a bit expensive depending upon the type of car wing mirror you have previously installed.


If you used to position your wing mirror automatically or manually and now you can’t do that anymore, it’s time to visit the professionals. Or, you can call us for beneficial help with complimentary services. The automatic wing mirror positioning system works with electric wiring and you will need to call an electrician. But if it is a manual positioning system with a lever inside, then you need to call for a mechanic. But whatever the type of system you have, if any of your wing mirrors cannot be set to your desired position, it is necessary to ask for help.

Heating function failing

Some cars have a heating system in their wing mirrors. This heating system is necessary for people living in a cold environment because your wing mirrors can be foggy at times. If you feel any change in the visibility of your wing mirrors while the car is running, it is time to visit the professionals. They will have it checked and replaced if necessary.

Mirror breaking off

Mirrors are very sensitive and they have to be taken care of a lot. Therefore, whenever an accident happens with your car, you have to double-check the wing mirrors’ functionality throughout. But if it needs to be changed, change it immediately.

Signs when your wing mirrors should be checked

Wing mirrors are sensitive, especially to jerks and damage.

  • Cracked, broken, smashed, or chipped glass of your wing mirror unit
  • Missing glass
  • Cracked or broken casing
  • Stuck mirror to one position (inability to change its position)
  • The heating system stopped working, causing condensation on the mirror

Why do wing mirror repair costs vary?

The cost of wing mirror repair or replacement varies because of the type of your car, its model, make, and the total age of the car from its release date. It also depends on where you take your car for getting it fixed.

Also, the electrically operated automatic mirrors are difficult to repair and fix as compared to manual mirrors. Therefore, their costs of repair or replacement will vary from each other. Furthermore, the fee of an electric mirror repairer will be higher than a liver-operated mirror technician.

Wing mirror repair and replacement are two different things

Wing mirrors are always vulnerable and prone to easy damage. Studies show that most of the vehicles’ wing mirrors are damaged while parked. And then sometimes only a certain part of the mirror can be repaired or replaced. While sometimes, the entire unit has to be replaced if it’s damaged badly. Therefore, their charges and professional costs will be different from each other.
