Wing Mirror Info
A car's wing mirrors are those found on each side of the car. They are positioned so that the driver is able to see what is behind and to the side of the car. The mirrors are frequently located on the doors rather than the wings and most can be adjusted from inside the car with an automatic controller although there are still many that have to be adjusted manually. Being able to adjust the wing mirror is essential as the optimum viewing is different for each person that drives the car.
The mirrors have a plastic or metal casing and can often be folded in to prevent them being knocked off accidentally while the car is stationery. The mirror and the casing are usually separate and both are easily replaced. Modern cars have heated versions to deal with frost on cold mornings and some are equipped with additional indicators.
