Make your mirrors look new again!

This is one of our innovative MirrorCool Products.  (click for all the information, fitting instructions, videos, etc).

Each kit contains:

  • 1 grey surround trim, (flexible)
  • closed-cell backing pad(s) 
  • plus: some Cipa kits also include a new mirror glass (and so cost more. Mirror glasses are also available seperately for most of our kits)

Fitting instructions can be downloaded/printed in various languages from our MirrorCool Fitting Instructions page but we can also send you a printed copy with your order if requested.

Please select your mirror-type from the drop-down menu

PLEASE NOTE: To ensure that we send you the correct kit for your particular type of mirror, we need to know the reference number which is stamped into the back of the mirror-head. Without this, we can not guarantee that you will get the right kit.

The original Geco and Cipa mirror-heads were mostly stainless steel.  Some Cipa ones were aluminium.  The reference number is easy to see on these good quality original mirrors: stamped into the back of the mirror head. This is the number that you need to select from the drop-down menu when ordering.

A rough guide to different mirror types:

Geco 22, 274, 275, and 438 mirrors:

These were fitted to almost all Citroen 2CV, Dyane, Ami, Mehari, AK, etc, (from early 70s to 1990), and some other Citroens, Peugeots, Renaults and also some Morgans.  They were sometimes also supplied as after-market accessory mirrors as well as extended towing mirrors.  They were usually stainless steel (inox) but sometimes plastic-coated steel, (eg: light grey plastic coating on Citroen 2cv vans, black plastic-coating on some Renault 4).

Cipa 54, 195, and 225 mirrors:

These mirrors where fitted as original equipment to a huge number of Citroens, Peugeots, & Renaults, some Simcas / Chryslers and also some Morgans. Citroen models included higher spec DS (Pallas etc) and SM.  Our kit for 54/195/225 mirrors includes a new (convex) mirror glass, (and costs extra as a result). Attempting to fit the original glass in this type of mirror is not recommended as there is insufficient clearance for the mirrorcool trim within the housing.  Our replacement mirror glasses have been specially made to compensate for this.

Cipa 35215 mirrors:

These were original equipment on early Citroen Ami 8 and also to some other cars. They were usually painted a light silvery-grey. They are prone to rusting and so it is often difficult to see the reference number. More recently however, very poor quality chrome-plated copies of this mirror, have been commonly sold as cheap replacements for many classic Citroens, Peugeots, & Renaults. Our kit for 35215 mirrors includes a new (convex) mirror glass, (and costs extra as a result). Attempting to fit the original glass in this type of mirror is not recommended as there is insufficient clearance for the mirrorcool trim within the housing. Our replacement mirror glasses have been specially made to compensate for this.

Cipa 320, 355, or 358 mirrors:

Often fitted to the Citroen DS lower spec models (Special, Super, Confort), Citroen GS and earlier CX. Also seen on some Peugeots & Renaults.  355 and 358 are both aluminium.  320 is a stainless steel (more shallow bodied) copy of the original,  that has been sold as a replacement over recent years.    *Our kit for 320/355/358 mirrors includes a new (convex) mirror glass, (and costs extra as a result).  Attempting to fit the original glass in this type of mirror is not recommended as there is insufficient clearance for the mirrorcool trim within the housing.  Our replacement mirror glasses have been specially made to compensate for this.

Geco 30 or 196 mirrors:

Fitted to late sixties Citroen Dyane & Ami 6.   This type of mirror was also sold as an accessory in the late sixties, often with a fixing that clamped onto the edge of the door window frame for Traction Avant and many other cars that did not originally come with mirrors. This kit is currently unavailable: Please contact us for details.

Geco 127 mirrors:

Mainly fitted to Simca/Chrysler models. This kit is currently unavailable: Please contact us for details.

Geco 36 & 187 mirrors:

Fitted to Citroen H-vans, some Peugeot J7 and some other French vans. We supply surround trims and convex glasses for these mirrors, (please click here). 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Please Note: Most classic French cars had mirrors which were made either by 'Cipa' or by 'Geco'. Unfortunately some cars were sold with various different types of mirrors and of course some have been replaced over the years, either with second-hand mirrors from other cars or with various (usually low quality) 'pattern' replacement mirrors. For this reason, the above is only a rough application guide and we can only ensure that you will receive the correct MirrorCool kit for your mirror if you can verify the reference number on the back on the mirror casing.

Can't find your reference number?:

If you can't see the number, the following may help you to identify your mirror:

Poor quality Cipa chromed replacement mirrors: these are usually ref no 35215. This number is often stamped faintly making it difficult to see, through the chrome plating. These mirrors have been sold over the last few years as a cheap alternative to the original for most classic Citroens, Peugeots and Renaults. Apart from the (poor quality) chrome-plating, they can usually be identified by the plastic surround trim being black or translucent (instead of grey). (See identification-photo above, showing this type of mirror with a black surround).

There is also a stainless steel Cipa mirror which is identical to a 54 or 195, but has no reference number stamped on the back at all.

Unfortunately, we can not guarantee that you will receive the correct MirrorCool kit for your mirror, without matching the mirror reference number.
