Default How do you replace the glass in a broken side mirror?

Does anyone know how to do this, and where to get a replacement mirror for the passenger side? Thanks!

Hey did your's crack just out of nowhere? I found mine with a crack right down the middle and my car just sits on the driveway.

Anyway, I think your supposed to heat up the glass (hairdryer) so the double sided tape loosens up then just pry the glass out. I had a difficult time doing this because the glass is tightly snapped into place. I ended up just breaking the glass since it was already broken and removed it piece by piece.

Replacement mirror glass will cost $20 or less, installed, at your local glass shop. Your friendly online or bricks-n-mortar Subaru dealer will also be happy to get you the glass.

I ordered the glass from the dealer, how do I install it???

The glass is all out, it got shattered. I was parked on the street and have no idea how it happened. There is no damage to the mirror housing either, weird.

Who was selling the blue tinted mirrors for our cars? They were convex I think and they just stick on

stephan, just apply the double sided tape and snap the mirror into place. It was kind of tough because it's a tight fit (at least mine was).
