Over the last few years I've seen the side view mirrors on these things just fall off. The aluminum housing and steel screws don't mix well. Eventually the mirror head will break right off with no warning and hang there by the wires. I've had to replace 3 or 4 already. We don't get rust like they do in Ontario and that french province> I can imagine they fall off over there after a year or two. I'll post a pic when I get around to it so the 3 of you can see what I'm talking about.
