How can I replace the glass in my rearview mirror?
Keep this in mind, can you replace the glass on your side-view mirror only?
Broken glass doesn't mean you have to replace the whole side view mirror assembly. Replacing a mirror glass can be done -itself and is often affordable. Many manufacturers make precut glass mirrors that can be fitted to all types of vehicles.
AutoZone also fixes side mirrors. AutoZone stocks the highest quality mirror replacement glass for cars or trucks. For easy installation, most items can be picked-up in-store or shipped directly to your home. You should replace the entire side-view mirror assembly if it is damaged.
How much does it cost for a rear-view mirror to be replaced?
You can expect to pay $35-$90 for the part, and $139-$328 for labor and parts for side mirror replacement. Although you may find cheaper third-party mirrors than official manufacturer parts at a lower price, this is not usually the part your dealership will use.
