Reflecting on 2021

replacement mirror glass

Rising demand for replacement mirror glass

During the last quarter of 2021, ELTA automotive reported a significant rise in demand for replacement mirror glass and mirror components. The increase was largely credited to the surge in MOT demand resulting from the huge number of postponed MOT’s during the previous year’s lockdown extension. Mirror glass falls under the 'Driver's view of the Road' section of the test which is responsible for around 7% of failures, so it is not surprising that this product group alongside bulbs and wiper blades has seen growth during the new busy MOT period.

A large percentage of the nation’s drivers will have also been feeling the financial effects of lockdown and furlough. This will have resulted in many drivers seeking more economical or DIY repairs to get their vehicles through a looming overdue MOT. Bumps and scrapes involving door mirrors are common as these parts are often the first point of contact in collisions. But many of these incidents incur only minor damage such and broken glass or covers which would not require the complete mirror unit to be replaced by a garage or body shop.

ELTA’s range of replacement mirror glass, mirror covers and mirror indicator lenses offers an easy, cost effective fix in the many cases where the mechanism and the body of the mirror unit remain intact. The range covers most makes, models and importantly, specifications. Standard black covers are available alongside ready primed versions that can be painted either professionally or with spray cans (providing great cross sell opportunities for those selling paint aerosols). Similarly, ELTA’s extensive range of glass includes both heated and non-heated glass for a simple O.E. quality repair.

The range is ideal for motor factors and retailers of all sizes, especially those serving both a garage network and the general public. The team at ELTA are even offering suggested stock packs to ensure you have the stock you need at hand to maximise potential sales conversions during the winter period.

Vehicle Profile: Ford Focus 1.0 EcoBoost – 120/125/140PS 2012>

Ford Focus 1.0 EcoBoost

The Ford Focus mid-cycle facelift (Mk 3.5) features a raft of changes made to both the exterior, interior and engine line up.

Revisions made to the body were thinner and sharper headlights, a new trapezoidal grille, giving the front more sporting intent than the previous model. The new front end is similar to that of the 2014 Mondeo as well as the face-lifted 2013 Fiesta.

Mechanical improvements to the face-lifted Ford Focus are chassis revisions to all versions, to make the car more planted on the road, and the steering is also sharper than the pre-facelift model, while also offering greater feedback for greater driving pleasure and fun, which has been the trademark of the Focus since it launched back in 1998.

The 1.0 litre EcoBoost proved incredibly popular. The award-winning three-cylinder engine is produced in two variants, with 100 and 125 hp (75–93 kW) and 138 bhp (103 kW; 140 PS).
