Mirror Cover at 1A Auto
What are Mirror Covers and where are they Located?
The mirror covers, or mirror caps, are the coverings behind and over your car or truck’s side view mirrors. They protect your mirrors, as much as they can, from dirt and debris coming up off the road. They also help give your vehicle its unique look. Since different models have differently shaped mirrors, they have differently shaped caps. Your side view mirror covers are specific to your car or truck.
How do I Know if my Mirror Covers Need to be Replaced?
Your mirror covers can get chipped or cracked by the same debris that they are supposed to protect your side view mirrors from. They can also be damaged in accidents or by roving hooligans. This can make your mirrors more susceptible to damage. It will also be a serious eyesore.
You may also choose to replace your mirror covers for a cosmetic upgrade. Chrome mirror covers will fit the same as plastic ones. If you do opt for the plastic ones, they will come black, but you can paint them yourself to match your vehicle (or to not match it, we won’t judge).
Now is a good time as any to mention that, while some OEM side view mirrors do have removable caps, most are designed not to be removed. So, if you decide you want to replace an OEM mirror that does not have a removable cap, you would need to replace the entire side view mirror assembly, or assemblies.
Can I Replace a Mirror Cap Myself?
Replacing a mirror cover is within the grasp of even a novice do-it-yourselfer. Most of the time, the mirror cover is held to the rest of the mirror housing by a series of tabs. Gently pry out the tabs, and you’ll be able to pull the mirror off. Then put the new one into place, using the tabs to position it, and clip it in. On some models, the mirror cover is held on with fasteners like screws or plastic clips. If your mirror is constructed this way, you will have to remove the fasteners before you pull off the cap, and install them to hold the cap on.
