Driver Side Mirror - Plastic post replacement
I could see that someone else had the same issue about a year ago, but the post is archived and doesn't list a solution.
I backed out of the driveway this morning and the garbage can (though it was empty) was too much for the side mirror and snapped it off. Everything on it is totally fine, but the plastic post that holds the mirror in place is broken.
When I called the dealership to ask about parts, they said that the entire mirror would likely have to be replaced, which ended up being a whole $350 for the part alone.
I looked on eBay as well as a few other sites, and while I can find the entire mirror for much cheaper (around $150ish), but I was wondering if there was a way to just buy the plastic post that was broken. I am not sure what this piece is called, but it seems like it would be something that would be under $50. Otherwise, I will just buy the used part and hope it works. My mirror is non-painted, non-heated and has lane assist, so I am hoping that I can just buy any 2017 Renegade mirror and be able to snap the current housing on top of it..
Attached shows a bit of the damage, but I still need a good picture of the broken plastic post.
