    Default Wing Mirror Glass.

    Hi everyone,

    I'm looking for some advice please..........Does anyone know if my '05 Signum Elite will have heated wing mirrors? I just lost the wing mirror glass from my Signum -my N/S (passenger) wing mirror was knocked and cracked, and then this morning, a small piece of glass fell out and smashed so now I need to replace it. The plastic backing plate is ok, thankfully. Can i just replace the glass or do i need to replace the whole lot if they are heated? Had a look on ebay for some replacement glass and noticed there are two options - flat or wide angled (which is best?) and also they say they come ready to stick, but I'm unsure if this will be strong enough if my mirrors are heated? Would greatly appreciate any advice........many thanks.

    The glass simply sticks to the plastic back, the heating elements are in the plastic bit not the glass.

    N/S wing mirror glass fell off today - was on a busy roundabout - had to keep going, too risky to recover it

    Anybody know what the standard glass is - flat or convex? (have an '04 SRI)

    Have checked out the ebay offers, seems to be available with or without backing plate & in flat or wide angle, not sure which to get.

    Are there anti-glare versions also?

    This seems similar to what I already have
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/02-09-VECTRA-C...item2305b4773e

    Plastic backing plate is OK, guess the adhesive gave up.

    Would appreciate any suggestions on which to get.

    Re: wing mirrors.

    Sorry, pet hate of mine, them being referred to as that.

    They've not been fitted to the wings for a number of years now.

    Can we refer to them as door mirrors please

    Yes - you're correct, they are not wing mirrors.

    Sorry (showing my age here), I can remember a time when some cars did not have any side mirrors & some only had them on the O/S.

    Have gotten used to them now, don't like having a blind spot, especially on the N/S.
