Speak to Honda, but I think you may have to buy a new mirror to get that part.

Pity when they now have chance to position display anywhere they want that they didn't give a larger display and mount display higher ( and on dash to be more in normal eye line ) after going to trouble of fitting a camera
I thought the same. The door could be shaped to cover the mirror location, giving a larger screen in a more natural position. Then it dawned on me. Cameras in place of mirrors are illegal in some markets (the USA for instance), so do do that for Europe would require a different door for other locations.

No, its the fixed part below the mirror which covers the metal mirror mount. Don't think I can post a picture on here but can email one if required

However, putting cameras on the vehicle body makes them lower than mirrors and hence more vulnerable to collecting muck.
If you had a look at the video you would see that the cameras replace the side mirrors. They are smaller and more aerodynamic than door mirrors.
Mind you, the cost of replacing one would be quite sore, and I don't know how I would get on with the display being mounted just below the normal mirror position.
Regarding cost - I imagine if you could afford the car in the first place, the cost of replacing a "mirror" would put you neither up nor down.

Hope camera lens is heated for winter use, cameras do tend to have lower dynamic range than human eye which may cause sun and lights of following cars to blank out display.  Pity when they now have chance to position display anywhere they want that they didn't give a larger display and mount display higher ( and on dash to be more in normal eye line ) after going to trouble of fitting a camera, but IMHO camera and screen just extra stuff to go wrong.

Ling's, along with other parts suppliers, appear to only stock parts up to 2010.
Is this what you are after.

Honda Jazz Mk2 2008-2015 / Wing mirror mount cover
« Last post by weeleyboy on September 19, 2018, 04:21:25 PM »
My  Jazz EXCVT RJ63 NSE (registered 09.01.14) needs a lower cover for the n/s wing mirror which was broken in an exchange of wing mirrors. The actual mirror is fine and the indicator works ok and folds as normal. It is the black plastic shroud which sits below the mirror and covers the mount which is broken. I tried to get a part no from Lings Honda web site but it doesn't recognise the registration no of my car. Is this a main agent job?

I also believe, if a vehicle has been scrapped, and the DVLA had been notified it has been scrapped, it is removed from the system.

Did you use the vehicle enquiry site?

https://vehicleenquiry.service.gov.uk/

If it's been scrapped I believe it will no longer shows up on here but will still come up on the MOT history check.

My 53-plate Jazz can't be found if I run the reg through the vehicle enquiry.
Its showing the same result, no mot, no tax.

Lower speeds and obstacles which cause stop-start driving are likely to increase CO2 as the vehicle movement becomes less efficient (until we all have hybrids or electric cars). The underlying problem is that, whatever the speed limit, a significant proportion of drivers will exceed the limit. I often accumulate a significant trail of vehicles when passing through a 30mph zone on a main road and that's when I'm a couple of mph over the indicated speed to allow for the built-in optimism (but I also get annoyed by those who drive significantly lower than the limit when the road is clear).
