So my sister took the car out for the night and came back with the passenger side mirror assembly all cracked and broken. I'm assuming she sideswiped somethin, she won't say. No damage to the body of the car thank god. My question is if i get this eBay mirror will it be any different than the factory one? And how difficult is it to install? I'm assuming I have to take the door panel off to get to the wiring harness. If anyone knows any details, please post! Thanks.
I suppose it would work, but I wouldn't e-bay parts unless they're showing genuine GM part numbers.
Here's how I would do it. Call your local dealer, tell them your make model etc... and that you would like the part number for the passenger side mirror. THEN.....go to www.gmpartsdirect.com and order the mirror for about 1/3 of what the dealer wants to charge you.
Installation is a breeze, and yes, you have to pop the door panel off. No biggie.
