Power Mirror Switch Replacement

Your power mirrors are something that you adjust rarely but when you need to change them it’s good if they work. The power mirror switch is a small electrical component that sends power to the motors that adjust your mirrors. 

What is a power mirror switch? 

The power mirror switch usually has a whole host of inputs to power the different motors in the mirror. When the buttons are pressed it completes the circuit and sends power to the motor that controls that movement. It’s a slightly more complicated switch than some of the others in the car and they do a complicated job. 

Why do you need a mirror switch replacement?

If someone else has been driving your car, you don’t want to jump in the driver's seat and find out that you can’t see behind you. Your mirrors are an important part of driving and you don’t want to be in an accident because of a little switch.

How to tell if you need a new power mirror switch replacement?

If you can’t move the mirror in one direction, that’s a good indication that the switch is malfunctioning. If the movement is only in one direction or only works occasionally, that means the switch could need replacing. 

What’s involved in getting a power mirror switch replaced?

The mechanic will remove the trim around the switch and unclip it from its holder. The wiring will be disconnected and checked to make sure that it’s still in working condition. The new switch will have the wiring connected and then the assembly will be tested. Once that’s all good, they will clip the switch into the holder. The trim will be refitted and the car is good to go!

How much does a power mirror switch cost?

Depending on the amount of jobs the switch does the prices for a replacement can range from $80 to $300. This all comes down to how expensive the new switch is. 

How often do I need a power mirror switch replaced?

Much like the other switches in your car, they do wear out over time. They aren’t an often serviced thing but they do fail occasionally.

Is a broken power mirror switch unsafe?

If it leaves your mirrors at a weird angle where you can’t see behind you properly, then it can be unsafe. It’s a quick and easy job that will make sure you’re aware of your surroundings.
