    I have no idea how I missed it, but I just noticed my one side mirror has a crack in the lens of the indicator assembly. I went back to the original pictures I took of the car and lo and behold, the crack is there (see below).

    SideMirrorCrack.

    I had a look at Partsbase and Lings, and they both show an exploded view of the side mirrors with the indicator assembly as a separate item. Does this mean I can replace just the indicator assembly (£53 as opposed to over £200 for a whole mirror assembly) ? Part number would be PFKL518245.

    Has anyone here done it before (or disassembled and re-assembled a similar side mirror assembly), and if so, is it a simple enough job ?

    Looking on Ebay, a used complete side mirror assembly is still more expensive than getting the indicator assembly on it's own, so may as well go with the new part..

    I believe that part is available on it's own. Give HH a call next week, tell them you're from HK and get a price (with club discount)

    NP. I remember reading similar issues with the Accord. The lens is often a casualty if the mirror is bumped.

    WOW. 25% Discount from HH. Just got quoted £43.32 including VAT for the turn light assembly. Will be delivered on Wednesday (would normally be next day, but they need to order it in).

    The guy I spoke to said this is a part for an Accord, but confirmed by my registration that it was correct. If I write a guide up on replacing this, should I put it in the 7th Generation Civic section, or should it go elsewhere if it applies to multiple models ?

    I just saw this great write-up by @Ichiban , and as the side mirrors on this generation Accord are the same as on my Civic, I don't think I need to write up another guide on this.

    They will be the same however the part numbers will be slightly different due to the car, HH will able to look them up easily.

    @RogerH69, just a thought. When you add the repair to you log, just quote @Ichiban 's DIY so that readers can follow what you've done It would tie the two together nicely.

    Will do @Nels
    I looked through @Ichiban 's DIY and that seems to go through replacing the actuator, which I assume is for adjusting the mirror. It also mentions cutting wires. If I am just replacing the indicator assembly, can I -

    1 - Do it with the mirror still on the car ?
    2 - Do it without cutting any wires ?

    I don't know the answer to that, as I've not done that job. What do you think @Ichiban?

    Yeah you can do without cutting the wire as long as you have a helper holding the wire so it does get stretched and one holding the outer case whilst you work .lol
