Wing mirror replacement help!

forester joe

Recommended Posts


Unfortunately I need to replace both (argh!!) wing mirrors on my 2010 (60 reg) forester 2.0 x...

I've found pattern parts online (not first choice but significant savings) but I need to know if mine is the face-lifted model and I can't find the info. Can anyone tell me how to find out or give me any pointers as to the differences between the two models?

I'd be extremely grateful for any help 🙂

look at you front grille and see if it early design or facelift design .
I wouldn't recommend aftermarket complete mirrors as quality/fit is far from great , would need be rhd compliant mirrors too for rhd model for wide angle glass be correct, some don't even use wide angle glass .
you better off hunting used original parts, facebook marketplace can turn up some local cars being broken , try local salvage yards too .
Mirrors can be spendy, actually had a 2001 outback that was initially an insurance right off due to 2 mirrors in the shop last year .
