    I've managed to break the indicator lens, drivers side wing mirror. Any ideas where I can get a new lens to stick in place. Otherwise the wing mirror is fine. Any help would be appreciated????

    Go to your local dealer. The part number should be A2038201421

    Thanks for the update. Couple of questions? Is it easy to fit? Will they have it in stock?

    Thanks

    Mine is a new spec 2002 model 52 plat first of the new shape. Can you confirm if I can get one from a dealer easily and is it a self fit for a semi capable diy motorist?

    Ok, push lower part of mirror inward, so top edge is out, you can then see metal clip that holds mirror glass to mirror mechanism - unhook it with a screwdriver.

    Then you can see how the mirror cover fits, a few screws normally (often torx), remove it, and change the indicator , again a few torx.

    When reassembling you can preload the metal spring on the mirror glass, put it in place and then nudge it with screwdriver so it clips back into place nicely
