Rear View Mirrors ?

Hi All,

Just wondering, am at the stage of replacing the tatty/broken old R6 mirrors I had fitted previously, can they be E marked, or in fact do they need to be E marked for IVA ?

Doesn't have to be e marked, see below from the Indirect Vision section of the manual:
Of course just makes your life easier if they are!


7. All mirrors must have an acceptable approval marking or have equivalent
characteristics to a mirror approved for use on a vehicle of the same
category as follows:
- The reflective surface must be encased in a protective housing
- surfaces contactable by a 165mm sphere (interior) or a 100mm
sphere (exterior) must have a radius of curvature of at least 2.5mm
except for fixing holes or recesses less than 12mm wide, which
must be blunted

there are requirements for minimum 'reflective surface' size too

quote:

8. An interior mirror must be a minimum of 40mm high by 80mm long (see Note 2 & Figure 1)

9. An exterior mirror must be a minimum of 40mm high and 70mm long, and be able to incorporate a measurement parallel to the height of the rectangle at least 70mm in length within the lens. (see Note 2 & Figure 1)
