Check eBay. Lots of choices with most heated power mirrors running around $40. They come complete with the wire harness - just unbolt your broken one and bolt up the new mirror

If you need to replace the whole thing? Pop off the door panel, and you can replace the entire ordeal. Unheated mirrors are like $20.00 used, new ones on ebay from $30.00. Some other idiot has them up for $99.00, USED, thief...

got it out. just pop it from the bottom.

one question: the original mirror has a second set of wires but i don't know what for. both mirrors have the two tiny wires for the heat (works).

Reviving old thread that doesn't seem accurately answered any way.

I have intact housing. I have replacement glass mounted to plastic glass holder (rather than merely a frame). I do not see any info as to how glass connects to/with/within housing.

I've seen the entire housing replacement discussed and demonstrated, but nothing on merely the glass being replaced: no drawings, videos or discussion. Do exploded diagrams exist that show how the glass is connected to the housing?

If it CANNOT be done, then why is the glass available for purchase sans housing?

Thanks
