Replacement Door Mirrors (including housings)

Cleaned up the garage and found some parts you want to sell? Or are you looking for that one part? You can advertise or request just about anything that has to do with the Volvo 480 in here: brochures, towing-hooks, antenna's, etc etc...

Replacement Door Mirrors (including housings)

Post by Martin Mc » Fri Apr 05, 2019 6:59 pm

Hello folks,

Just wondered if anyone had experience of replacing the entire door mirror units, as mine are both somewhat shot to pieces. I did think about trying to graft on 440 /460 units, if I can't get hold of decent 480 replacements.

Alternatively, is anyone aware of a supplier for replacement covers - mine are completely gone & only held together by duct tape.

Cheers for any suggestions!

Might be able to help towards one mirror...will check later when I get back home😊. Your Celeb is red, isn't it?

All the best

Yeah, was going to ask if they were wary or late mirrors, going to guess late?

Late mirrors Jeff - don't forget the Celebration was the run out model in 1995...

Hi Martin

Have now checked - I do have a spare passenger side mirror, in the correct Celebration red too, but it's not up to much I am afraid. The mirror glass is cracked (although of course that could be swapped over if your existing one is ok) and the cover has two lugs broken plus bad lacquer peel on the top. The black surround and fitting part all appear ok though.

If it will help you in any way you are welcome to it.
