Side Mirror Options

A vehicle’s original mirror options affect the replacement cost. Depending on the options your mirrors have, you might have to pay more to replace your side mirrors.

  • Mirror operation
  • Folding
  • Mirror lights
  • Mirror glass

Paying a Mechanic

If you opt to have a mechanic replace the side view mirror, the cost also depends on the shop’s hourly rate, and the amount of time required to complete the replacement is dependent on the kind of vehicle.

In some cases a side mirror replacement can take 30 minutes, but depending on the mirror options, it could take longer.

Based on a typical dealer rate of $120 per hour, you could save between $40 and $180 per side by replacing your own side mirrors with new direct-fit mirrors.
