Couple of things:
 
1. Anyone have a dark blue wing mirror cover for sale?
 
2. Anyone have any experience of replacing the entire wing mirror unit?
 
Does the door card have to come off completely? If so any advice here

Managed to remove this, quite easily with no broken bits.
 
I will post up a full guide in due course.
 
Also found out that the mirrors with black plastic covers DO NOT fit cars with painted covers.

Hi Cooper trooper

It may be that the black mirrors are from a VISIA model which does not have motorised mirrors,
the mirror glass is motorised but not the housing.

It could be. I did phone my local garage and was told the black plastic covered mirrors do not fit the cars with painted.

Upon inspection the mirror did look like it folds and had all the correct wiring in place. A different one arrives from an alternative supplier tomorrow so will let you know what I find.
 
£400+ from Nissan, so hoping the aftermarket version will work.

Got my alternative mirror, got it out the box, perfect, they have deleted the offending mounting piece.
Offered it up to the car - denied! A different mounting lug gets in the way.
 
Getting really frustrated now, just need a mirror to get my car back on the road!

Judging by the above posts it would seem they are hard to get... it looks like either a dealer or a scrappie from a write off - there's a few sites you can register with which go off and search the Country for one and pass the details back to you. Well worth a look.

Thanks gadget, on tuesday night we had a close encounter with a fallen tree across the road, from all the high winds, my partner did a great job, as she just managed to avoid the tree, the only damage was the wing mirror cover was missing. So after trying to get a wing mirror cover, which seems to be difficult, I thought I would go back to were the tree had fallen, and there lying in the ditch was the wing mirror cover, fully intact. I gave it a wash, it just clicked back in so happy days. Thanks again.
