Question Drivers door mirror (RH) - LED turn lamp failing

Hi Team,


When I indicate right my LED wing mirror turn signal is intermittently fine, very weak or doesn't go at all.
I swapped it out for the LH mirror and that worked fine so I'm assuming the wiring within the door and body of the vehicle is fine and its something not right within the mirror itself.

The local dealer quotes $570 plus painting for a new mirror, wreckers have a second hand on in the wrong colour for $450
So, I see on Aliexpress they have a led turn signal for about $50 landed.

  1. Has anybody used them?
  2. How hard are they to fit?
  3. Are they any good?

And...when they talk about right hand or left hand do they mean while facing the front of the car or while sitting in the drivers seat?


TIA
Cheers

You don't need to replace the complete mirror just because the lamp fails. Did you ask the dealer how much the lamp itself is?
I've replaced loadsa these lamps on VWs but never done one on a Hyundai. It's usually a 15~20min job to replace a VW one.
I've only ever used genuine VW lamps too, so can't comment on the quality of the Chinese knock offs.

The left side of the car means the driver's left when he is sitting in his seat. In the trade we don't talk about left and right. We talk about the near side (left) and off side (right) to avoid any confusion.

Thanks Good to know, and the bold portion of your post also makes sense regardless of a LH or RH drivers seat too. The next bit not so much for us down under

The dealer doesn't offer the lamp, just the whole mirror - don't get me started.......

In the end I ordered an LED from Aliexpress for NZ $30 landed so we will see what the quality is like first hand. The measurements supplied all look good (fingers crossed)

After I hit pay now I found a genuine(?) new one on Ebay for about NZ$60 landed.



I've found some written instructions on how to do the replacement myself so will have a crack and see how we get on

An Update

The part ordered from Aliexpress was right, but what arrived was completely wrong, not just a little bit, it was for a totally different vehicle After a bit of back and forth I have got a refund and ordered a new (right??) one from another dealer, fingers crossed.....


In my "test run" I managed to get the mirror separated from the housing after a bit of cursing as the only instructions I could find on line were different to what I needed to do, but a bit of trial and error got me there in the end. Once I pull it apart next time I'll take some pictures and upload the instructions that worked for me.


So...now I sit and wait patiently for the right LED to turn up in the post...


Cheers
