Frequently asked questions
+

Are wing mirrors a legal requirement?

It is a legal requirement to have a working wing mirror, the failure to have one can land you a £2500 fine and 3 penalty points.
+

Does my windscreen need repairing or replacing?

Our garages will never fit a replacement if they believe your windscreen can be repaired. Repairment is cheaper and a quicker job, but the decision of which depends on the extent of the damage, which can be determined by a mechanic.
+

Do your garages offer windscreen calibration?

Modern cars fitted with advance driver assistance systems require windscreen calibration after a replacement in order to work safely. This process is now offered at our garages nationwide.
+

How much does a car rear window replacement cost uk?

The average price for windows, windscreens and mirror replacements in the UK currently sits at around £160.

Windscreen repair and replacement

Garages always attempt to repair a windscreen before resorting to a replacement in order to save you time and money. However, some damage is too bad to even attempt a repair.

The glass used by the garages will match the specification level of the original to ensure a top-quality job.



Side and rear window replacement

To replace a side window, mechanics must first remove the shattered glass. They will then clean behind the interior door panel before fitting the new glass. The new side window is then carefully fitted into the vehicle, ensuring it can be opened and closed properly.

Once fitted, the interior of the car is cleaned again, and the interior door panels are replaced.

The process for replacing rear windows is relatively similar. With rear windows the bodywork and interior of the car must be protected before the removal process begins. The next step is removing the seals which hold the current window in place. That window glass is removed, and a primer is applied to the framework ready for the new glass. The new glass is also given a coat of bonding glue before being carefully fitted. 1 hour after the fitting the glue will be set, and you are safe to drive off!



Windscreen calibration

Many new cards have advanced driver assistance systems ADAS, these mean that replacing glass is now no longer enough. The new glass can affect any cameras or sensors, requiring recalibration to work effectively and safely.



What is a Wing Mirror and what is its importance?

A wing mirror is made up of a base, mirror glass, a cover and a turn signal. Having a working wing mirror is now a legal requirement, the failure to have one could result in a £2500 fine and/or 3 points on your license.

Wing mirrors ensure visibility and in turn safety, therefore you should never delay getting one fixed. Nowadays with modern and electric cars, a single mirror replacement is rarely possible. Cars have more electronic components than ever; a wing mirror replacement now requires specialist knowledge from a trained mechanic.



Wing mirror replacement

If only the mirror glass is damaged, it can be replaced separately without having to remove the entirety of the wing mirror.

The first thing a mechanic will do when replacing a mirror is inspect the damage by removing the appropriate panels. If you have an electric wing mirror, the mechanic will also test the electrical systems at this point.

The mechanic will then replace the mirror unit or the mirror glass.

The mirror panels are then remounted and is then tested as the final step.
