I recently replaced the driver's side rear view mirror on 2001 Taurus. However the only mirror I could find was Maroon and my car is Harvest Gold. So I tried to take the mirror cap off to paint it, but the three retainers snapped. So now I need a new mirror cap. Only problem is, I can only find whole replacement mirrors.
There's a place on Ebay that sells them called Auto Parts Wholesale I believe. But they are $22 + $17 shipping for the non-heated mirror. But I don't need the mirror, just one of the plastic caps. They come with two mirror caps a smooth one and a textured one. I emailed and asked if I could just buy a mirror cap, but the guy said sorry, they are already prepackaged for shipping. I also checked the Ford dealer and they didn't even have a part number for it. Does anybody know where I can purchase just one of the black plastic mirror caps for the driver's side rear view mirror?
Here's what it looks like, it would be one of either of the two pieces shown to the right of the mirror:
