You won't find it already cut, BUT! Get a sheet of paper and trace the outline of the mirror. Bring or fax the outline to a glass shop and have them cut it for you. We do this at my shop all of the time! Might even be less than $15. Now, arent you glad you asked?!

The side view mirror of my 2002 Chevy Tahoe is distorted. I see double headlights, etc. What is causing this?

Thanks you for asking your question? I would be glad to help you.
The issue that you are having with this mirror is called separation. It's caused from the silver nitrate backing on the mirror pulling away from the glass. This is a common occurrence in some GM mirrors. Unfortunately the only solution is to replace the glass in the mirror.
You can either purchase a new mirror from the dealer, or you can purchase a used one from a junk yard. However, you may have the same issue with a used mirror in a short while. There is one other option. Some parts stores sell replacement glass with adhesive backs that you can place over top of the existing mirror. It's about 1/3 the price and works just as good!
You may find that GM will only sell the whole mirror assembly and not the glass, if this is the case it will be a fairly expensive repair, from between $90 to 200 for the mirror it self depending on if it's manual or electric and has heat and turn indicator.
Should you need further assistance in the installation of a new mirror please feel free to contact me.

your local auto parts store like autozone sells mirror glue to re-attach the mirror to the windshield. Less than 5 dollars.

2001 jeep grand cherokee drivers side un-heated door mirror, was vandalized and broken. The mechanism still works but the glass (mirror) is shattered. Do they make a replacement glass or do I need to...

you should be able to purchase just the miror from the factory dealer >note: thy want to sell the whole asmebly so be ready to tellem thats unexceptable
since there just going to order the mirrior and tell you thy replaced the whole thing!

i recomend finding a local glass store and having them cut the mirrior for you as its usaly cheaper and 3-5 days faster

on reataching the mirrior use a full sticky tak sheet not just 2 strips like from the factory as the 2 or 3 strip method causes them to break if bumped to hard
as you have already found out >yours is broken!
good luck

My wing mirror has been smashed but only the glass is briken the body of the mirror is fine. Is it possible to replace just the glass part of the mirror? Cheers...Leighton


Thanks for using FixYa.

Yes, you can replace only the glass part. I'm sure that if you go to the dealership and ask for the glass part they will be more than happy to sell you one. I hope this helps.
Thanks and have a nice day.

How to replace just the glass on my side mirror

Go to any glass shop, they'll cut a new mirror and glue it on top of the old one. Much cheaper than replacing the whole unit (hundreds).
