MirrorCool Glass & Surround Kit to replace the cracked or crumbling grey surround on original Cipa mirror with reference number ‘355’ or ‘358’ stamped into the back of the mirror housing.
- Flexible silicone rubber grey surround trim. (UV & temperature resistant, so won’t shrink or crack: will remain flexible).
- Convex* mirror glass. (Made to EU automotive standard: 1st-surface chromed convex glass with slight tint).
- Foam backing/spacing pads. (Waterproof closed-cell).
Cipa 355 or 358 mirrors were often fitted to the Citroen DS lower spec models (Special, Super, Confort), Citroen GS, early CX and early Visa. Also seen on a few Peugeots & Renaults. 355 and 358 mirrors have a light grey aluminium housing.
Our kits for Cipa 355/358 mirrors includes a new (convex*) mirror glass. Attempting to refit the original (approx 156mm x 103.5mm) glass in this type of mirror is not recommended as there is insufficient clearance for the MirrorCool surround trim within the housing. This is why our kit includes a new mirror glass, which has been specially made to compensate for this, (155mm x 102.5mm).
*Convex mirrors give the driver a wider field of view, however this also means that images in the mirror appear to be further away than they actually are. This information is not printed on the glass and so may not be suitable for some areas outside the EU, where this may be a legal requirement.
