In Eastern can., I have to replace glass only on 2001 coupe (passenger side)
but was told had to buy complete mirror. Was quoted $328. Canadian plus has
to be painted and installed.
Fortunately am now told that glass only can be ordered. Cost of repair now
to be considerably less.
Thanks Peter, Good info -- hope I can do as well. Based on that, I'd
figure about $ 550 fincluding an hour's labor and a trip to the paint
booth. -- Will call around to local dealers. It's tempting to ask that
they not paint it. Then, pay my airbrush artist do the job using owing
Dad's Duplicolor instructions.
On this one, "they" forced the inboard edge and screwed up the lateral
Note to self: Start parking in the better parts of town.
Thanks Dad! Good info!
I think that all the damage is to the spider. Looks like they forced it
off the lateral motor (I'm assuming these are screw-jacks like in the
C4.) Both motors run, the vertical tilts the mirror OK. Laterally, the
mirror is jammed beyond the 'full left' position. Glass and thermo
connections look OK, The shell hinge still pivots OK and the detent
feels good but the hinge looks slightly misaligned.
I overhauled one of the C4 mirrors some years back. Sounds like a good
weekend project and an opportunity to pocket a few bucks -- thanks again.
Another update on my mirror .....when they tried to order using ser. no. of
car, according to GM parts, had to buy complete mirror. Parts person found
p/n some other way and was able to order only glass and plastic backing
My mirror had same problem asyoui have described.....someone or something
forced the mirror and broke one of the mounting piece on back of mirror.
Dealer called to say glass in....went to pick up today and it appears to be
the same except where the wires for defrost plugs in are sitting 90 deg.
from where original was positioned. I still think it will fit....enough room
behind mirror to fit plug in.
And message on glass is in English.
I'm taking car to dealer first of week for some other work and will have
them install at same time. I don't have mirror with me but if you need part
no., I can get it first of week.
If this doesn't work, I still think I can McGiver something with the old
Will keep you updated.
