Long story short, my passenger side mirror got clipped.

I'm not sure how these are assembled, but hoping someone here can shed some light.

Do I need to purchase a new mirror? If so where? I can't find them ANYWHERE besides here:

Here is a picture of the damage:

Pretty sure that piece is just held on by clips. I would bring it to your local autozone or parts store and see what they say. Definately do whatever you can to not have to buy a new mirror they will never match that paint color 100%! Damage doesnt look bad at all... not to sound dumb but you can probably just silicon/glue it back on

I agree with you. The electronics for mirror movement still works and all. It LOOKS like it's just rivets that clip in, but I've tried and cant get it to stay (then again I have a broken hand right now and had issues w those stupid clips replacing my drop in filter :heha: ). Maybe there are screws or something in the cabin that comes off by the a pillar?

I could easily ghetto rig it, but it would bug me to hell regardless. Very anal about my car.

Luckily it's not a big deal, and I have a good friend that works at a great body shop that's gonna look at it.

Just lookin for more info.

That sucks but if makes you feel better, I took out my RH mirror after only driving my car less than 5 mile of owning it. Broke the mirror and all, cost me 169 dollars for the part and replaced it myself. Also had to use the cover on it since isn't part of the mirror assembly it was a extra cost. I was able to buff out any evidence of the construction barrel :)

If your covers are unscathed you won't have a paint matching problem as they'd reuse those. I'd be tempted to have the dealer's body shop do it so everything is nice and it's not bothering you all the time. Plus from other threads on here it sounds like when several folks have attempted the repairs on the mirrors themselves they can't get the covers to stay put.

Maybe I got lucky, my cover has been great since my repair, even in high pressure washes. I still get mad at myself for hitting the barrel. We just say it was a cow in the road and I swerved to miss, but I chalked it up to the "1st scratch" I mean it was one heck of a scratch to say the least haha.

Hate to drum up an old thread, but I'm assuming LH refers to driver's side? My girl took her mirror partially out on the driver's side. Long story lol....
