There is no fix for this the element in the mirror is going out and you will eventually see foggy areas around the outside part of the mirror and through the middle. These are very expensive I would just live with it or try to find one on Ebay or a salvage yard. Sorry

Have to buy a new mirror or:
I was able to avoid buying a new mirror, but my mirror also became so foggy that it was unusable. This correction will not allow the Auto Dimm feature to work!!!!!!! But at least the mirror will function as a mirror. This took me about an 1 1/2 hours (glue needs to dry).
1) Take the mirror off the windshield
metal lever held mine in place
mirror then slides off
2) Pull the mirror apart
it's glued together
Don't brake the plastic
3) Seperate front glass from the auto dim element
a clear front glass is sandwiched to the
element with a series (or piano style)
of metal clamps
the element is a reflective surface
the clear glass may brake, this is OK
it will not be reused, Be Careful Not
To Cut Yourself
Don't damage the reflective element, though
4) Clean the surface of the element
Be Careful Here, the element scratches
more easily than the glass surface would
5) Disconnect the 2 wire connector connected
to the element circuit
this is just a safety step to prevent the
element from trying to work and possibly
6) Put everything back together
glue the mirror back together
reconnect the mirror wiring if you
need to (my mirror had the compass
that needs power)
put it back on the windshield
I performed this repair about 6 months ago and have not had any problems. The element is the reflective surface that the mirror already used, so it reflects as it should. The auto dim feature, as stated before, does not work, but I didn't have to pay a couple hundred bucks for a new mirror or a used one that would eventually do the same thing. Their is a gap from the plastic edge of the mirror to the element the width of the clear glass that was removed. It is not noticeable to anyone but you.

These mirrors are all made by one company, no matter the car maker, they all have the same problems, they are very unreliable, if u have power to the mirror which I am 100% sure u do the mirror will need to be replaced, they are not repairable they are about $250-300
