Hi all, hopefully im posting this in the right spot. Please let me know if not.

About a year ago I broke the translucent plastic circle on the passenger side mirror.

Im wondering if anyone has experience replacing.

I've actually bought a replacement mirror but hoping there's another solution as you can see from photos and had the mirrors professionally painted to match the car.

What's holding those pieces in, glued or a rubber seal?

If it's just a seal, I'd try pushing it out gently from the inside, through the bulb opening.

I believe this might be helpful.

I’m guessing they also sell the part.
This is a good video but I found it to be a bit misleading. The glass does not come off that easily. I had to use an uncomfortable amount of force to pry it off. I was sure it was going to break.

Same is true for the black trim piece. I remember a fierce battle getting that thing off.

There are multiple videos available on YouTube about this. I watched a handful and found the different perspectives helpful

as long as you’re in there, remove the diffuser film; your lights will be a lot brighter 👍🏼

All helpful insights thank you. Great news for me is I bought a second mirror off the forum for prob $200 :-/ so at least I have spare parts!
