Ebay Text 2 BMW Z3 E36 Outside Wing Door Mirror Spindle Repair Fix RHD Passenger N S

Oxidized mirror base, snapped mirror spindle, mirror and base snapped and no longer joined leaving the mirror hanging.


faulty corroded spindle broken up wing mirror
The OEM mirror base and internal pillar are made from cast aluminium; these corrode and eventually the pillar snaps rendering the mirror useless.

It is a very common fault with Z3 models for the wing mirror base to corrode and spoil the appearance of the mirror. This connects to the internal pillar/ spindle / frame, within the mirror which also corrodes and eventually snaps leaving your mirror hanging redundant. This spindle is also the mechanism that allows you to fold in the mirrors. The original base and spindle is made from cast aluminium, this is a poor quality cast and material for the environment in which the part is fitted, inevitably these components will oxidize / rust and snap. Previously the only option was to replace the complete mirror at vast expense from BMW. This causes further issues of colour matching and respraying to match your vehicle. The OEM part will also have the same internals which would just fail again.

Fit our improved design replacement glass fiber strengthened mirror spindle and base unit and fix your mirror for the life of the vehicle.

Replace your oxidized mirror base and snapped mirror spindle with our glass fiber strengthened plastic base and spindle. This can be fitted extremely quickly to your current wing mirror repairing it for the life of your vehicle. Our repair saves the cost of a new mirror / colour matching of the new mirror, which would just fail again because of the quality of the original aluminium parts. Our spindle operates in the same way as the original allowing you to fold in / out the mirrors with no danger of snapping or corrosion. The material of our item has been very carefully chosen to suit the strength and weatherproof properties needed to last the life of the vehicle. The base of our item can be painted to match the vehicle or left in the black finish shown, either way looking far superior to a corroded aluminium part. Replace just the parts that fail within the mirror and restore for life, our item comes fully constructed and can be fitted very quickly using our video and pictorial guides.
