Replacing inside rear view mirror
#1
Hi,

my inside rear view mirror has become blind after 40+ years. As I see it I have the following options:

1. Buy a replacement from any of the usual vendors. However, there seems to be no exact replacement for the original.

2. Have a new mirror glass cut locally. This has the disadvantage that the day/night function will no longer work.

3. Have the original glass re-plated. Don't know what that would cost and how well it would work.

I just want to poll your thoughts.

Thank you, Manfred

Have you visited any of the many used parts dealers around? Here are two I deal with...

Ebay is another place to look.

There is probably a significant risk with every used mirror of being or becoming blind, I fear. I assume they become blind with age.

The mirror is not reproduced and good used ones are hard to find. The mirror Roy probably used is PN MIR-17 on the OMS website. Chuck

That one looks quite similar, the big difference is that my arm is argent in color. It probably comes with a different base plate that has to glued to the windshield.

How does one remove the old base plate glued to the windshield?
