About Wing Mirror Glass Manuals

There are areas of the road, behind the car and to the sides, which are crucial to be able to see, in order to drive safely, which are out of the driver's peripheral vision. A wing mirror is an exterior mirror which enables the driver to see these 'blind spots', allowing clear vision of any traffic or pedestrians nearby and any potential hazards, and as such is an important visual aid and safety feature.  

The Mercedes-Benz manual wing mirror can be adjusted by hand to move vertically, horizontally and diagonally. It can be adjusted to suit the height, line of sight and seat position of the driver.  The Mercedes-Benz manual wing mirror can be folded in close to the car to avoid damage to both the casing and the Mercedes-Benz manual wing mirror glass.

An important component of a wing mirror is the wing mirror glass. Wing mirror glass comes in a variety of options, such as plain glass, convex or tinted glass. Plain glass has a flat surface which enables the wing mirror to reflect light from an object without the image being distorted, so it provides a true reflection of the distance between the car and the object being viewed. Convex glass has a curved surface and is often chosen by drivers as wing mirror glass because it broadens the driver's field of vision, but it doesn't provide a true reflection of the distance between the car and the object being viewed in the way that plain glass does, so this should be taken into account if using convex glass in wing mirrors. The Mercedes-Benz manual wing mirror, is usually mounted in the door pillar on the door and is comprised of a casing which holds the Mercedes-Benz manual wing mirror glass in place. Wing mirror glass is usually fixed to a backing plate or stuck to the mirror casing with strong adhesive pads or glue. The Mercedes-Benz manual wing mirror glass should be clean and free from scratches, chips and cracks, to enable clear, safe vision. Wing mirrors, and therefore wing mirror glass, come in different shapes and sizes so it is important to ensure the wing mirror glass fits the wing mirror when replacing the wing mirror glass.

If the wing mirror glass get smashed, cracked or chipped, the Mercedes-Benz manual wing mirror glass will, of course, need replacing. If it's just the glass that is damaged you won't need to replace the whole wing mirror and can replace just the glass.  It is important that you consider the make and model of your car when replacing the Mercedes-Benz manual wing mirror glass, to ensure the replacement is compatible with your car.  

Mercedes-Benz trivia

  • 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).
  • The longest sedan vehicle available in today's car market is the S-Class Pullman, at a mind-boggling 6.5 metres long. Bear in mind that the average length of a sedan is only 4.7 metres!
  • Mercedes are responsible for a lot of 'firsts' in their long history, including the world's first production of a diesel car. Very impressive, but it only had three wheels. Production stopped pretty quickly in the late 1950s.
  • The Popemobile is a Mercedes Benz M-Class SUV. It's not a standard model, however, and has some added features like an inbuilt oxygen system and bulletproof glass.
  • 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.
