side view mirror springs.

Ive searched in town and briefly online can you get replacement springs for the mirrors? Obviously you can buy the mirrors still so someone has to make them.

I've wondered that myself.. Speaking of that, I really should reattach my lower pass mirror spring.. That thing has been unhooked for years >_<

Unhooked or broken? Im guessing its broken bacause that spring is on tight and just doesnt unhook by itself lol I know this bacause I just finished painting some mirrors red and I completly stripped both to do it which meant removing both springs from both mirrors lol.

well it might be broken.. I thought it was only unhooked but I've never really taken it apart to see. It doesn't look like it's broken but you can only see so much when partly pushing the mirror forwards/backwards

If its unhooked you should see a rod with a hook on the end poking out.

Does it rattle at high speeds? Mine did when I had a broken spring.

nope. Only thing that rattles is the one speaker, my rearview and one part of my wind deflector(crappy insta-glue double sided tape stuff is giving away)

My drivers side has a spring laying in the bottom. It looks like the little clip the spring hooks to has rusted and the spring pulled through. Ive not taken it off, just looked at it with a flash light. Very annoying since it shakes going down the road.

I'm not seeing any place so far. I can keep looking because thinking back on it, I broke that one spring. this was wayyyy back in like 8th grade so I forgot about it.. Not my proudest moment..

If I find anything, I'll be sure to pass it along!
