  • Mirrors peeling?

    I picked up my new astra yesterday and noticed when cleaning it that the drivers side mirror, theres a type of clear film peeling off it

    the peeling can be spotted due to it being a lighter shade of blue than the rest of it.

    I'll contact the dealer tomorrow but was wondering if its common for it to happen?

    Do you mean there is some clear plastic cover on it or do you mean the paint lacquer is peeling off?

                can you not just buy that part of the mirror?

                looks like it clips on and off?

                will contact the dealer. They can pay it lol

                  You can buy the part - but from memory it comes unpainted or in primer, you could buy some carbon covers as the burg has or have them carbon wrapped, hopefully the dealer will sort for you
