Dang car wash!

Went to get some gas today at a Mobil by my place and saw $10 car wash with unDer body wash so I bought that and half way through it busted my right side mirror off! They said they might not be able to cover it but now I know not to ever go through those again. Anyone know how much the mirrors cost roughly? Thanks

Tell me about I had similar experience never again car wash at a gas station but could find single mirror assembly at local car junk yard $ 80-100 could be different where you live

side mirrors for 99-04 are dirt cheap, look at a local junk yard (pull a part) and yank one.

YOU could upgrade to 03/04 cobra mirrors~ just your call.

Just remember NEVER go through those car washes

Cobra you can fold in and you get them painted to match your car. But they are pretty pricey AM sells them for like 300 for one. I bought mine off craigslist for 200.

Use touch free car washes i've used the one by my house every Friday for almost two years and i have never had a problem and if i feel like it didnt do a good enough job they'll give me another code for nothing and i'll go through again.

The housing for my mirror was broken when I got it. I went to the junkyard and got one for about 20 bucks. I connected it to my car and the motor for the mirror was a little hard to move so I took off the mirror, sprayed some WD-40 on it, cleaned it, and put it back on. It works great and looks better. Just careful taking off the mirror it's very fragile.

Yeah, keep on them. They should provide some sort of help to replace the mirror.
