Re: Wanted Right Side Heated Mirror Backing Plate

I get them from local auto glass supplier.  Looks just like original for 5K.
Even says "Objects in mirror are closer than they appear."  Glass is tinted.
The replacement glass will not delaminate like the original as the silvering is
part of the glass, not on the back and not sandwiched.  Went up to $30 since
last time I bought.  Use silicone sealant-not too much.  Install is easier than
removal.  Original install uses double stick rubberized tape around edge and
some kind of double stick clear tape everywhere else that the heater touches.
