yeah, I was gonna go with tasca, but I wanted them right now. Shipping wouldve been 10-15 so 160-165 and gotta wait a week cuz they ship via UPS and Im in CA vs. 197 and I can have them right now...only 30 more aint that bad IMO.

No way I was gonna go with certifit...IDK how they mount the glass to the mirro and I need the exact mounting style I have right now or else the mirror wont work.

yeah, I had a peice break off the mirror housing itself when I took it off the door. I guess the plastic dried out and just cracked. Hopefully this new one will last longer.

before you take off the mirror, tilt it all the way up and center it left to right. Once its off, you will need a larger than average flat head screwdriver to pry off the mirror from the motor. I'll take pics of what Im talking about later today....that way you dont screw up like I did and end up buying a $200 replacement mirror. :D

I tried using these instructions first and ended up breaking off some parts from the motor

turns out I had this type of mirror and shouldve follwed these instructions instead
