    I did it. I was backing up in a driveway and caught the trailer tow mirror (the extendable ones) Everything is intact except the black cover. Mechanicals, power and the heat all work fine, mirror doesn't vibrate at all.

    Ford dealer told me I needed a whole new assembly for $250. Can you just buy the cover for less?

    Howard,

    I doubt you will be able to buy just the cover!!

    The complete mirrors are on ebay all the time. You should be able to get both for less than 1 from Ford. Then you could have a spare for "next time" or resell it on ebay!

    Howard, you can not buy the cover alone, you must buy the entire mirror. You should be able to get them down a bit in price. I had mine smashed by an oncoming van, he clipped my mirror and kept going! $200 from the dealer. AW Direct sells replacements too, but they're a little different in appearance.

    Howard,

    Check the dieselstop page, I was able to find one in the for sale area for $50. It was in excellent shape, and I got it from Texas in 3 days. It did take me 3 weeks to find one, kept getting out bid on Ebay.
