Guys I really need done help. I'm hoping someone can come through! If not here I guess nobody can. I have 08 my drivers side mirror has chrome on back it's heated, extends, and folds by power. I got hit Saturday night and busted the plastic piece. I called ford they won't like 1300 hundred for it. I have called everywhere. I found one but it has memory and I'm pretty sure mine doesn't . The guy said it prob wouldn't work the wires would be different. I can't make myself pay 1300 for one mirror. Supposedly that is a one year mirror and no after market company makes it. If anyone has any suggestions it would be greatly appreciated. Thk guys for any help

Which plastic piece did you break, the whole thing is plastic? Just some parts can be changed and others, not so much.

i smacked mine 2 years ago on a sign going like 40 and it took the mirror almost clean off. It was dangling by the wires outside my truck. went through insurance because it dented my door, they tried to replace the mirror with a cheaper aftermarket one, it never worked, took it back in and insurance had to foot the bill for a brand new mirror. When you order them from ford, the caps are not painted either, you have to color match them. My truck is green and the auto body place had to paint the new cap. you might be able to order just the cap, but it will be black.

oh yea.. 1300 is right.. thats how much my OEM one was on the bill that went to the insurance company... it was like 3500 total to fix the mirror and the dent. all cuz i was trying to reach for my Copenhagen in the passenger seat and wasn't paying attention to the road.

So what you are telling me if I find a blabk mirror and I buy, then i can put my chrome piece on it? My chrome is fine. The only thing it busted was the black plastic on bottom. This for your help man.. This has been a headache! Lol.. FYI my insurace is paying for it just still can't justify 1400 for a mirror ugh lol

I don't think they go together like that. As far as I know, the back of the OEM black ones are all one piece and will not accept the chrome or painted cap.

I tell ya I been hearing good stuff about some of the aftermarket mirrors. I'm starting think maybe I buy a set and then sale my passenger side mirror lol maybe I get 1400 lol. Honestly I have thought about just getting aftermarket black for both side then having them color matched ? What y'all think?
