Default Cracked mirror frame...crazy quote

Found my rear-view mirror a bit damaged. Well, just the black plastic which wraps round is broken at the edge(as in pic below)

Checked with my dealer in Netherlands and they state that they need to replace the entire mirror at a cost of 600!! Which sounds a bit crazy, doesn't it? Isn't it possible to just replace the black plastic frame? And I'm sure the cost is pretty negligible.

Possible to order it from the US?

This is the one you need.

The US ones have homelink built in the european ones did not have this built into the rear view mirror. The mirror is manufactured by a company called Gentex. See link above

I had the exact same problem. Cracked the frame pulling out of my garage and took out a 2 inch chunk. My body shop easily molded a new piece and nicely blended it in to the frame so there was no way to tell that it was repaired.

Your chip is much bigger than mine, so I don't know if you can repair it this way, but worth investigation.

total cost: $125.00
