    This I have to share with you folks lol

    Just went on ebay to find a a passenger side wing mirror for the car as it was broken when some dim-witted fool tried to steal mine earlier in the winter.
    So I find one, and order but forgot to check what side of the car the mirror I ordered was for. And of course it said driver side mirror...

    In a panic I try to cancel the order, and that is not always easy on Ebay as some sellers manage to ship before they even read their messages, so I was settling down to "well, I'll have a spare mirror if something happens then...but I could really use those 17 on something else....

    That is when I spot that the seller is in the UK, and you folks sit on the wrong side of the car while driving, hence your driver side is my passenger side :-)
    Just hope it's not a EU mirror, lol

    All's well that ends well, as they say

    What do you mean, "WE" sit on the wrong side? It's everyone else that sits on the wrong side lol! Anyway, just as well we do or you'd have wasted your hard earned cash Rune! Glad it worked out for you.
    If there are no women around and a man says something, is he still wrong?

    I get why you had to share it, thats the kind of thing that just can't be wrote. It hits my sense of humour perfectly.

    Does it not work at all, or only works on the highest setting? I'm just thinking you might have the same sort of issue I had: http://mechanics.stackexchange.com/q...e-highest-does

    Hope that helps!

    It's the fan that is broken. The garag ran a diagnose with their computer. It simply needs replacing. Luckily it's covered by waranty :-)

    Clockwise or Anti-clockwise? Maybe order from Australia and you'll get it cheap.
