    Just returned fro a three week break in Yorkshire and on the way home it was very blustery. Our driver's wing mirror kept collapsing inwards on the motorway - any other funsters had this problem?

    Had this a couple of times, either slow down or get out the gaffer tape.

    Try and pull back the rubber concertina on your mirror stalks if you have them and you should be able to tighten the screws to put more tension on the springs.

    On later (post '08) Ducatos etc, each mirror arm is covered by two half plastic mouldings which clip together. Prise these gently apart using a broad flat blade. Once removed, you can see the bolts on which the mirror swivels. Lube and tighten SLIGHTLY so the mirror can still move when it has to!
