Hello Adam.

If the casing is in good shape, but just won't stay in place because some of the fixing points have been broken - there is a product I can personally recommend to repair this.

It is called Tiger Seal, and is a PU adhesive used to fix bodykits & spoilers onto cars - definitely up to the task of a plastic mirror housing.

Use the glue very sparingly (more on the wing mirror, than the casing) and you will need to use a bit of masking tape for a few hours to allow it to set in place.

It can be messy (thinners will remove any excess), but its your cheapest and easiest fix as you won't have any painting/removal and fitting involved. Just google it, and you'll find plenty of online outlets who can supply it to you.

Hope that helps.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
