    Default wing mirror

    Hello there. I recently bought a 2003 Vectra C 2.2 LS and last night some
    delinquents tried to kick off both my electric wing mirrors. Mercifully, the
    drivers one survived (albeit with a crack) but the one on the passenger side is the problem. The mounting and the main part of the mirror is ok but the glass has been lost exposing the little bit that moves the glass along with some wires. Now on pressing the mirror button inside the car this bit still moves ok, up and down, left and right.
    Im wondering do I just need a bit of glass for this which can be fitted by someone with the necessary know how, or do I need to get a complete
    new wing mirror and have that fitted ? (Would be a shame as most of it seems ok and seems to be working). If either/or does anyone know where you would get the necessary cheap on the internet ?
    I am a complete beginner when it comes to these things. Any help would be really appreciated

    You should be able to get the glass from a dealer but it could be expensive don't quote me on it though. To fit i think they clip in with a bit of pressure. Be careful not to crack it though, or ask the dealer to do it

    As above, it sounds like it's just the glass and that clips in.

    If the crack you mention bothers you, I've got a couple of housings currently for sale.

    Thanks for the advice guys. Im happy enough with the mountings themselves and Ill think the handiest thing to do is to go to vauxhall and get them to order me and fit the relevant piece of glass (as I wouldnt have a clue). Seems also to be the cheapest option. Cheers guys.
