I'm not sure... But for something that little I will just try to go to the junkyard on my day off.

Just pisses me off... Its the principle. Its not your car, so don't touch it!

Now I get to look forward to driving around looking stupid and stressing about the littlest thing on my car (till its fixed)

Any new edge mirror should work. Hit the salvage yard and you should be good.

Found out after looking at my mirror that one of the tabs off of the electric motor was broken so I have to replace the whole thing... Thinking I'm gonna buy it from AM if I can't get it at a junk yard....

Is It goofy that if I buy that driver side mirror for it and it doesn't say "object in mirror may be closer than they appear" but my passenger side does?

Take the passenger side one off too and get the ones that say "objects in mirror are losing"

One is concave and one is convex so thats why the warning is on one side I think. Watch out objects may be closer than they appear! No really?

Yeah your right about that, after looking at all the vehicles in yard, the driver side doesn't have that.

Man, people are pathetic.... I'm losing more and more faith in human society. Less than a year ago, someone broke a side mirror right off of my mom's van. There was glass all over the road. Kinda looked like someone knocked it off with a baseball bat.
