Red face Replacement Door Mirror for Type-S - Help Please!!

Hi there , please play nice because I am new to this and not quite sure what I'm doing!!

I have a NHB 09 Honda Civic 3-door hatch Type-S (baby 1.4 engine), and recently I had an unfortunate accident which resulted in me losing the passenger door mirror of my pride and joy

I can't really afford to take it into the Honda garage at the moment, so I'm looking at ways to fix it on the cheap (even if it is only temporary) - I have a mechanic friend who can fit a new door mirror, but I need to find one first!

I've had a look and they seem notoriously difficult to get hold of, especially because I need to replace the whole thing including the mount! I've found a couple for the 2006 onwards 8th gen models (which I believe are compatible, but I'm no expert), however they are for the 5-door models and I don't know if this would fit on my 3-door hatch??

Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated!!

ps - I could claim through my insurance but I really don't want to increase my premiums and lose my NCB over the sake of a wing mirror!

Welcome

The wing mirrors on the 2006 model match those on the 2009 - the only difference is the automatic folding (which you don't have ) However I don't think that makes a difference.

Hove you tried the for sale section on this site for example http://www.civinfo.com/forum/items-s...bits-sale.html

Thank you for your response, I will definitely have a look at the for sale section!

Don't suppose you know if the 5-door wing mirrors will fit my 3-door?

I'm 99.9999999999% sure they are the same but you could ask the question of some of the Honda Dealers on this forum - for example Gordons Honda - Civinfo

30?! Bargain!!!

I haven't had that much luck as of yet, on ebay all of the Buy It Now ones (06+ shape) seem to be in the 100 region
And as for the Auction items...only time will tell lol

I don't seem to be getting anywhere with breakers/scrap either

I'll keep an eye on ebay, and now that I know a bit more about which models are compatible I should hopefully have my baby fixed soon haha
