Car Power Mirrors – Repair Service in Hamilton

How do power wing mirrors work?

A power / electric mirror is a mirror that can be electrically adjusted from inside your car. In most cars with power mirrors, each mirror has two small motors. One motor moves the mirror vertically whereas the other moves it horizontally. The switches that control these motors are connected to your car’s battery via fuses. When the switches are activated, the circuit between the switch and the motors is completed. This allows electricity to flow to the mirror motor and move the mirror according to your adjustments.

Your left and right electric mirrors are crucial to your safety. They allow you to make lane changes safely, perform parallel parks and gain a better view of your surroundings. For this reason, it is important that they are adjusted to suit you.

Additionally, functional car mirrors are a requirement for passing your Warrant of Fitness in New Zealand. For this reason, it is important that they are in good condition.

What causes power / electric side mirror issues:

  • Broken Side Mirror Glass – if the wing / side mirror glass gets broken in an accident, then it will need to be replaced in order for your car to pass a Warrant of Fitness (WoF).
  • Broken Wing Mirror Housing – if the wing / side mirror housing gets broken in an accident and has any sharp edges, then it will need to be replaced in order for your car to pass a Warrant of Fitness (WoF).
  • Damaged Window Control switch – The switch that controls the power mirrors may become defective over time. This can be caused by it coming loose, breaking or being jammed/blocked due to small contaminants entering the system.
  • Blown fuse – The fuse that controls that power mirrors can blow, preventing electricity from reaching the mirrors. A fuse replacement will fix this issue.
