Temporary fix…. The mirror we bought at the spares shop wasn’t the right size. Hubby held it while I went to get some insulation tape. Then as I tried to tape the mirror in place… SMASH! He dropped it and it cracked. Luckily we were still at the shop so I bought another one. I’ve booked the car in the garage so I’ve decided just to tape the new broken mirror over the old one. I’ve used the tape over and inside the drivers door so it supports the weight. I can see behind me now and I always use all my mirrors so I should be OK till tomorrow….
I got in the car last night to get some cat food. It was only when I got to the top of the hill and tried to check my drivers wing mirror I realised I couldn’t see behind me. I pulled over and saw that the mirror was hanging off. I couldn’t see the glass so drove home….
The mirror was on the road but broken…it doesn’t help that I have to park on the road, its not the first time it’s been hit. Seven years bad luck?
I will have to try and get it fixed, but last night I taped everything back together as well as I could. I won’t claim on our insurance because the car is very old and it might be impossible to get the parts. My neighbours car was written off because it was slightly damaged. I can’t afford to lose it and replace it, I don’t have the money.
Sorry to moan about this. Its worth poking on YouTube for fixes. My mirror is a bit too damaged to do them and I don’t have the skills…
