interior rear view mirror

Post by rb61 » Thu Dec 12, 2019 8:34 pm

I have the dreaded lava lamp syndrome. I have seen instructions for swapping a mirror from used vehicle, by separating the glass from the circuit board. But, I am sure I will screw it up. I don't see how I can remove the glass from the frame without gravely distorting the plastic.

I have a mirror unit from a salvage yard.
What will happen if ai simply swap the two units?
If this won't work, are there any other options?

Thanks

Thanks for responding. I think I found a company that will do the repair for 99.00 (see below).

2 questions:
Will the electronics in the vehicle function properly without the mirror connected?
Does the UEM consist of the complete circuit board is just one component on the board?

Thanks again
