About Indicator Wing mirrors
All indicators on vehicles are designed to let other road users know that a vehicle is about to make a turn or change lanes. Some vehicles are fitted with indicators on the wing mirrors. Indicators on wing mirrors are positioned on the front-facing section of the mirror on the opposite side to the mirror itself. These give extra warning to other road users especially from a head-on or side viewpoint. The wing mirror indicator is located on the side of the vehicle and is usually attached to the door. Some vehicles have the option of wing mirrors that can be electrically folded flat against the vehicle when not required.
The wing mirror indicator, along with all other indicators, is operated by a lever or stalk on the steering column. When the stalk is pushed down or up either the left or right indicators will flash regularly until the stalk is pushed back to its middle position.
If a wing mirror indicator fails to operate it is most likely due to a blown bulb, poor connections between the bulb and the bulb-holder or an indicator relay malfunction.
- Karl Benz founded the famous car company. He is not only credited as the maker of the world's first practical motorcar but also has the distinction of being the first person ever issued with a driving license (local citizens kept complaining about the noise and smell of his Motorwagen, and so he needed written permission to drive it).
- Most people think of silver when they think of a Mercedes, but that iconic colour was an accident. Just before a race in 1934, the white-painted W25 was found to be 1kg over the weight limit. The paint was quickly removed, the weight limit reached, and the car won the race.
- Karl Benz obviously gave his name to the company, but the Mercedes part of the name comes from the daughter of his customer and friend, Emil Jellinek. Her name was (obviously) Mercedes, and it's still surprising that her name remains so attached to the iconic car brand.
- We all recognise that distinctive Mercedes logo, but did you know that the three points of the star represent air, land, and water? There was a point where they considered adding another point to represent space, but they decided against it in the end.
- In 1924, Mercedes Benz became the first car manufacturer to include brakes on all four of a car's wheels. Not long after, in 1931, they also added suspension springs to the corners of the Mercedes Benz 170.
