Have scraped the car wing mirror. Basically still ok, but the plastic cover going over the indicator bit now has a small hole. I don't want the fuss/expense of trying to remove it and buying a replacement; so I was hoping someone could suggest a transparent filler I could use to simply seal it and keep the rain out.

Had considered layers of superglue, but something meant for the job would be better, especially if it was a single application. Does anyone have any suggestions ? (Google and others don't seem to understand the meaning of "transparent" :-( )

Cheers.

Google (or search Amazon for example) for "clear plastic cement", and use whatever you choose to stick a small clear plastic patch over it. Clear plastic of varying strengths and thicknesses is widely available these days in packaging.

It worked on my caravan to cover a small hole. Simpler than messing about with fillers.

Thanks all. Spoilt for choice already it seems.

Further suggestions seem to have dried up :-)

Ok, just ordered Clear Parts cement. The caulk, although attractive, seemed expensive for a small hole. So if the cement fails, might try for the tape next. Will BA the cement (until it's been tried and failed) ;-)
Halfords sell packs of tape with three different colours for these kind of problems.
