This normally means a replacement mirror which we all know are expensive and cost around Ã‚Â£100 each when if we could find someone to make the worm gear the mirrors could be saved and repaired for a lot less once we have the tooling costs paid.
As time goes on i guess the powerfolds, which are already fairly scarce will become even more difficult to source so it makes sense to find another and cheaper solution to keep them going.
So far i have found 6 UK companies who make worm gear and e mailed them
about a week ago and so far only one has replied who cannot help.
This is therefore a plea to any members who know any engineering companies who have the capability to make these to let me know who they are so i can make contact.
Presumably the Chinese are fitting powerfolds on the MG and Roewe and maybe even using the same worm gear and design so the ideal situation would be to find out who supplies them and " buy them off the shelf " but thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s probably a tall order

Planning is an unnatural process, much better to just get on with things, that way failure comes as a complete surprise instead of being preceeded by a period of worry and doubt
