Rearview mirror glass (exterior rvm)

If I make purchase of an EF rear view mirror (LHS) - am I able to take the glass/mirror part out of the panel, and put it inside my EL's part? Or is it impossible?

I was under the impression that the glass parts can be easily replaced.

If you know anything, please post ASAP cos I need to know:)

Thanks

Re: Rearview mirror glass (exterior rvm)

A friend of mine found he was able to prise off the glass part with a screwdriver. That's the first I heard of this being done - that was in an EB mind you.

There are cheap complete mirrors for sale at New Oak Ford...

Jack, can I ask how cheap? And do they have EB-ED ones?

Re: Rearview mirror glass (exterior rvm)

Luke, I paid $150 each for my EB mirrors. The EF ones I saw were about $75 each. Remember that minor mods are required to fit them to an older model. Cheers!

Re: Rearview mirror glass (exterior rvm)

Damn Jack! That's a bit pricey LOL! I have a crack in my driver's side mirror, and was told by a wrecker that Ford didn't sell them separately as it's basically one unit... There must be a way to pry it off though and replace it?

My friend pried it off with a screw driver and took it to a mirror fixing person.

Re: Rearview mirror glass (exterior rvm)

Yeah
You can pull it off, I didn't even need a screw driver to get them off my EL.

Someone broke iit so it is smashed, I could either take it to a glass place, or get one from an EF/EL.
They have little clips, but im not sure what the little steel part is for

OUCH!!! I paid $35 each for my EB electric mirrors (second hand, but in perfect condition).


What mods did you have to do to fit them, Jack?

Mine screwed in without a problem, so maybe it's just series 1's that have an issue??



Cheers,
Dave

Re: Rearview mirror glass (exterior rvm)

Dave, I think Jack was referring to the EF mirrors fitting onto anything earlier.
