Car Side Mirror Repairing




Electric side mirror of my car was out of order. It didn't worked so I started to repair it.

Step 1: Disassembling Side Mirror

First, I removed the side mirror assembly from the front door and then, seperated the mirror out of the mirror box.

Step 2: Taking Out a Gear Box.

Next, I carefully took the gear box out of the mirror assembly.

Step 3: Opening the Gear Box.

And then, I opened the gear box and checked what the problem was.

Step 4: Broken Gear.

I found out one of the two plastic gear was broken and so, mirror didn't work correctly.

Step 5: Designing the Gear With a Pencil.

I designed the gear to print with 3D printer.

Step 6: Printing the Gear.

I printed the gear with my Moment 3D printer and replaced it with the broken gear. It pefectly worked in gear box and so my side mirror was fixed.

Thanks for watching.
