Re: Driver's side rearview mirror - Help!
Okay, seems I have same issue. Drivers side mirror (light sensitive) has started to fail in that the light sensing material sandwiched in the glass is seeping downward leaving only about 2/3's of the mirror usable. I have asked my dealer to look at replacing the glass BUT, they recommend replacing the whole housing as they have found that the mirror glass has 3 plastic tabs on the back and can/will break on installation. A new complete housing is $500-$740 depending on where you can get it. The glass only is about $100. I am pissed I'm stuck in this conundrum. I have even asked a different body shop and same answer. Really, glass breaks or fails and I have to spend close to a thousand bucks(housing, shipping, paint) before I even install it? Anybody got any good news?
Thanks in advance.
