QuoteAh man, just gotta chalk that up to typical city life. Dodging vagrant's trash cans is no easy feat.

That happened to me with an old Corolla someone side swiped it parked on the street.
I looked on google and you can find the part pretty quick I bet, mine was like 30-40$ for the whole mirror. I brought it to a shop with the new part and they just charged me a hour of labor to put it on. Best of luck.
I just checked. Mine would be $25 to buy a new one. There was no electronics involved so I think I should be able to install it myself with the help of my carpenter buddy, who has all the tools and know how.


Thanks for the suggestion, Erik!
if you can get the trim piece off there are usually three Phillips head screws mounting the mirror. It takes five minutes at best

Yeah, I did this twice for my old Saturn.  I think I was able to get the mirrors for like $15 each on ebay, but that was probably 15 years ago.  And if I can do the repair, I'm sure you can.  8)

Quote2nd week of at home learning for my kids and I am starting to lose my mind trying to juggle that with my actual job. The worst part of the whole scenario is that this learning was initiated to protect kids during the height of the pandemic but now the provincial gov't is using it to force the union's hand in the midst of a strike here.
I told my wife I want to drop my 2 kids off at the premier's house and see how he handles working and educating a couple of young children.

That's some shady biz right there.  Playing with the education of the future of our world is a dangerous game that won't end well for anyone.

It sure has given me an added appreciation for everything teachers do.
Everything is connected, because it's all being created by this one consciousness. And we are tiny reflections of the mind that is creating the universe.

Yeah, I watched a few YouTubes and found the part on Amazon for $25. I am positive I'll be able to do it myself.
