    Passat estate full wing mirror replacement

    Hello forum followers, My clumsy wife has reversed my 2012 Passat into a gate post which has pretty much demolished the passenger side wing mirror, the only part that is worth salvaging is the backing cover which on inspection is fine.
    I have been looking for a replacement but all I can find are glasses and backing covers. does anybody know if a full replacement is an option? Should I try and "itemise" various different parts, eg heating element, folding electrics and indicator perhaps and spend a bit more time to see what is functioning and what isn't?
    Thanks for viewing.
    Steve.

    There are a number of variations but the base version of the unit is VW part number 3AA 857 507 9B9 which is 120.16 +VAT but this does not come with the cover of which there are a mind bending number of varieties starting at 69.45+ VAT or the glass of which there are six versions staring at 44.42 + VAT.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
