Stupid offside mirror grrrrrrrrrr!!

Postby Troopy » 12 May 2019, 18:16

Has anyone come up with a way to adjust the passenger mirror by themselves to any effect?

Mine keeps getting knocked and I get in, see it isn't right, get out adjust again, get in see it isn't right ad infinatum :evil:

Personally I just look along the passenger side at the mirror & adjust it so that I can see the drivers head rest.

I have to flap mine in every time I drive through my gate and it got very tedious. The landrover mirrors flap in and out and keep your adjustment like any modern mirror does.

They also stay put at 70mph

Are the brackets at that link specific to T25 to allow fitment of LR mirrors or are they standard LR fitment and just happen to line up? Reason being there is a listing with the brackets '/ arms / mirrors listed as LR fitting that works out a few £££ cheaper than buying the mirror and brackets separately...hope that makes sense!

Brackets made specially to fit landy mirrors to a T3 , mirrors not included.
They are mild steel you need to paint them.

^^^^^ Thanks! ^^^^^

All ordered. My mirrors are delaminating a bit anyway. They don't move (unlike most) but bring able to fold them in will be handy.

Yep, I've also fitted Corrado mirrors

Made a pair of 12mm spacers to lift the height and tilt the angle and they are perfect.Image
