Cracks or Chips
If you have a crack or chip in your mirror glass, it's essential to get it repaired as soon as possible. Cracks or chips that are left unrepaired can cause cracks to spread quickly, making it difficult to see what’s behind you while driving. Expert technicians can repair or replace the mirror glass with top-quality materials, ensuring that it looks as good as new. An unobstructed view of the road behind you can be invaluable when traversing the road. Reduced visibility can cause additional vehicle damage since you can’t see very well!
Malfunctioning Mirror Mechanism
When it comes to a malfunctioning mirror mechanism, the problem can be a sign of a damaged motor or cable. Technicians can diagnose the issue and repair or replace the necessary components to get the mirror moving smoothly again. Here are some of the common issues that can cause a mirror mechanism to malfunction:
- Damaged cables: If the cables that operate the mirror mechanism are damaged, it can cause the mirror not to move properly.
- Malfunctioning motor: The motor that operates the mirror mechanism can also malfunction, causing the mirror to become stuck.
- Loose or worn-out components: Over time, the components that operate the mirror mechanism can become loose or worn-out, causing the mirror not to move properly.
- Power source issues: If there is a problem with the power source that operates the mirror mechanism, it can cause the mirror to become stuck.
