How to repair a car wing mirror
This guide will show you how to fix a broken car wing mirror. Sugru Mouldable Glue creates a strong bond between broken surfaces and can cover cracks and fill gaps, saving you an expensive trip to the mechanics!
- A cracked wing mirror
- A single-use pack of Sugru
- Soapy water
- Toilet/tissue paper
Ensure the broken surface area is clean and that the crack is pushed closely together. Roll your Sugru into a sausage and place it over the length of the crack. If you find that the Sugru sticks to your fingers, use some tissue paper to rub it off.
After placing the Sugru over the crack, smooth out the edges with your finger. Sugru bonds most securely when you are unable to see a shadow or gap where the Sugru and the plastic meet.
For a smooth finish, use soapy water on your finger when rubbing the Sugru.
Leave your fixed wing mirror to set for 12-24 hours, and your repair is complete!
