Question about 2001 Subaru Forester
'01 with compass/antiglare mirror. I must have pressed the antiglare to off a while back, because it wasn't working and I never bothered to investigate it. Today, after car sat outdoors in the heat at the dealer's for other repairs, the antiglare surface showed up on most of the mirror excepting a silver glob on the upper part. The view is distorted and murky in the daylight. Can this be reversed, or must I replace what is likely an expensive item?
Problem experienced w/2001 OB Wagon. The 'mirror' w/auto adjusting for anti-glare is actually an LCD. When they go 'murky' it is the LCD layers delaminating. Not repairable -- remove and replace.

The mirror is toast. There is no fix for it.
It's about $125, new.
The clock is a seperate electrical issue. Also no fix.
