Hi folks looking for some advice...

'Clipped' my drivers wing mirror off a concrete column and the whole unit ripped off. Still works, kind of in that it moves when locked/unlocked but is pretty fubar. The outside cover is fine as i was reversing at the time. A new unit is either around £60 for unheated and £75 for heated. couple of questions...

Is the unit easy to remove and replace?
How do i know if its heated or not (this may be a very daft question)?

Any advice much appreciated.

if it folds with the central locking then its probably heated.
else send me the reg no. and I should be able to find the original spec.
easy to remove? yep you have done so already!!!
replace, depends on the damage, you may need to strip the door cards etc

ok. it I think its a black diesel version
yes is should have heated mirrors
'Dual Power Fold Htd Signal Mirror's'
built on 22.8.2013
registered 30.9.2014

the other way to find if it has heated mirrors, is to open them and see of the glass has wire connected to it ;-)

edit: you should have a pm message from me, with a few more details

much obliged sir.

with regards to removing the wing mirror, there is fairly small hole with a rubber seal on the inside of the door which gives you access to a nut which i'm guessing connects the assembly to the car. Is this fairly easy (i'm a bit of a novice) to remove and re-connect, including the electrics? Any special tools required?

I think the door lining may have to come off to do the electrical connector.
what actually needs replacing on the mirror? (a photo might help)
also be careful when buying a spare mirror assembly, there are some without the motorised folding

Just to add, there are third party companies who will supply door mirrors, or parts.
I've used one in the past (don't recall the name), but they will always be cheaper than
Fords.

yes i have priced from eu car part and other companies, their prices are consistent at least, did not even contemplate procuring from ford to be honest.

i'll get a picture posted over the weekend of the conundrum.


thanks to all.

if getting stuff from eurocarparts, order it online, and use whatever current discount coupon. easily often saves 30%.
yes it works with click and collect items too,
I think the top cover is sold separately from the mirror body, and you will have to get it painted too
