    Just got back from the test weekend with the new (to us) MH and everything was good except for one piece of essential equipment that we found to be missing. It's unbelievable - we spent hours looking round the van and tested just about every fitted option to make sure everything was working but somehow we missed this. Without this being resolved my life is going to be a living hell. My right ear has already swelled to twice normal size due to the ear bashing from the MH Capitano in the passenger seat.

    So does anyone know if I can retrofit a passenger seat sun visor with a vanity mirror? Or install a mirror into the existing one. It needs to be one with a light too. MH is a PVC on a 2011 Fiat Ducato Maxi.

    Failing that, any good internet bride sites? I may be needing a replacement :whistle:.

    You can get mirrors with sticky backs that will just stick to sun visor.or perhaps glue one.
    Ensure that the heat doesn't unstick it lol

    Oh yes, also suffered from my left ear being swelled for the same reason( yours must be a LH drive, as its your right ear:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO: ).
    New Burstner on a fiat base, but NO vanity mirrow.
    Swivel the interior mirrow to face towards the passenger seat, and tell her that she will have to stretch a bit:D

    No interior mirror either. As indicated above - the light is the issue as I can get a simple stick on for a few CHF. I'm going to investigate the mounting of the existing one and see if he cabling for a light is present and then maybe try a breakers or a Fiat parts place to replace the whole visor.

    Use a sticky backed one and stick a small book light next to it - Not the neatest of jobs but should work and prevent any further damage to your ear!!!

    Part exchange won't help, there is an inherent design fault in the species.

    Would that involve the need to press a button at all? If so it is probably not acceptable :rolleyes:

    Essential? - you're having a laugh!

    What are you, a man or a mouse?

    What's wrong with a powder compact? :)

    Just tell her that she looks stunning all the time and that nothing could possibly improve her good looks and charm, problem solved :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    This one is worth a punt as it isn't expensive though the reviews are mixed:

    Not automatic though - I did find one of those in the US but it was $180 so probably not quite what you are looking for. :) Ear plugs would be cheaper.
