Rear View Mirror Replacement

What about a rear view mirror?

Without a rear view mirror, a driver wouldn?t be able to see the through the rear window to the area back of the vehicle. Typically affixed to the top part of the windscreen, it rotates freely to allow adjustments by the driver.

When does a rear view mirror need to be replaced?

Like a microwave in the kitchen, it?s easy to forget how important a rear view mirror is, until something happens to it. The tint and dimming capability may not be working correctly, or a mirror can get damaged in an accident. With some new mirrors equipped with GPS systems, Blue Tooth, and/or entertainment systems, some owners want to replace the original factory-style mirrors for ones with the latest technological innovations.

What are my options?

The vehicle can either be taken to a local dealer or repair shop, or an owner can replace the mirror. There are automotive websites that advertise their services or sell factory-style replacement mirrors or newer models. Some vendors offer free instructions online.
