    Default electric mirrors

    hmmmm, following my incident with a merc (http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=99554) I've just noticed, when I adjust the drivers side mirror (the damaged one), both mirrors move but when I adjust the passenger side one, only it moved.

    Anyone seen this before?

    no it's apparently to make it easier to reverse if you adjust the one side the other follows suit

    My bargain wing mirror arrived today. Genuine unused GM part just need to remove my old one and transfer the motor, glass, covers etc and then refit. I see what dez meant now about the surround being part of the wing mirror, looks like mine snapped off completely.
