Damaged car

About a week back my cars' left side view mirror was stolen and today the right side mirror is gone as well. This has happened in Tallaght.

Since I am a doctor I need to travel to Hospital and use my car for this. Can someone guide me where can I get my car repaired. Are any mechanics workshops open these days? Any Spare Parts shops open these days.

Please guide

Possibly use Micks garage or one of them to order mirrors? I replaced my drivers side mirror on a focus and the new one (once painted) was just as good as the old one for a third of the price of an OEM part. YouTube is your friend and shouldn’t take more than an hour to do each side.

Alternative would be a scrap yard but I’m not sure if they’re open.

Most mechanics should be open because you’re an essential worker, but expect to pay a chunk more.

Although I suspect others will disagree with Micks garage for parts.

sounds like you have been infected with Culturus Parasiticus,
or possibly its more mobile version Transitus Parasiticus

you may need a solution of Canus Biteycus

Is Toyota Avensis 2003. Mirrors were removed completely and even the Vipers were twisted. I fail to understand why would anyone do that in these times.

Tallaght hospital car park multi story ? Happened our 07 avensis while in out patients. They pulled the glass out but so much that they damaged the motor assembly for the mirror. Had to replace the assembly. Mick's garage will supply replacement glass but I couldn't get the assembly at the time other than via Toyota.

somebody has an issue with you. I think CCTV is the first stop here, if you fix that car it will probably happen again.

Sorry to hear that Damien. Will definitely check Micks Garage. Thanks

I have informed Garda but they are useless.
