Need to replace right mirror assembly

I dropped my 2002 LT and broke the right mirror assembly. Checked ebay and there are none for sale right now so it looks like I will have to buy a new one. The local dealer quoted a price of nearly $400. Other than the website supporting dealers, any suggestions on where to get one without having to pay an arm and a leg? Color is titanium silver.

Re: Need to replace right mirror assembly

Try http://www.chicagobmwmotorcycle.com/store/ They can order the parts for the mirror. BMW does not sell a complete mirror any more from what I'm told. You have to buy the parts and put it together, don't ask me how I know. Try this web site to find the part numbers. http://www.webparts.com/ Once you get to the correct page look under vehicle trim. Good Luck

Oscar - you can use Chicago BMW for a 20% phone discount. A leetle slow in delivery, butt 80 bones or so might be worth it. And of course, there are:

Beemerboneyard
Cycles Re-cycled
Deep 6 auctions on eBay
LTparts - Tony Kaye

Plus put up a 'want to buy' post in our site's classified forum.

Good luck, Oscar.

Re: Need to replace right mirror assembly

If anyone on the list has firsthand experience here, please chime in.

It appears to me that the painted part just attaches to the mirror cup (black plastic or chrome). If the silver part of your mirror is undamaged, perhaps any color used mirror might work.

I'm on the lookout for a good quality replacement left hand mirror cup myself. The front attachment point on mine disintegrated.

Check out this web site for a diagram of the mirror, http://www.webparts.com/ It will show how the mirror comes apart and the part numbers for each. I just went through this. Once you get to the correct page look under vehicle trim.
PM me if you need and help, Good Luck

Re: Need to replace right mirror assembly

I made the mistake of trusting the earth to hold my light truck up without a biscuit under the stand........never, never, never again.....always use a biscuit, donut, platform, rock....anything beneath the side stand, if you're parking on earth. LESSON LEARNED.....the hard way! I just replaced my left mirror when she rolled like a slo mo dinasoar to the ground. The break a ways worked like they are meant to, but the weight of the beast crushed the mirror assembly. I had to purchase the chrome/black piece and new glass...$130, but they wanted $170 for the painted piece(the screw standards broke) I opted to use Loctite Epoxy to form my own and it worked fantastic, saving me the $170 dollars for the painted piece.....nobody will ever know. It's great stuff! Good luck!

Re: Need to replace right mirror assembly

Thanks to all. I believe that I'll be able to buy just the broken piece instead of the entire assembly.

I pulled to the soft shoulder late last summer to photograph a fawn feeding about 16 feet away. The Light Tank buried the R/H mirror in the soft soil when I realized that I couldn't hold her up on the uneven shoulder.

I bonded the pieces/parts together w/ J-B Weld and used Gorilla tape to ride to last year's CCR. It held! Kept sur'fin eBay until a R/H with silver trim came up. Bought it for $160 and took it to a local body shop and had it painted to match basalt Gray. $60

Almost lost it from his inventory when I found out that the local dealer also brought parts there to be painted. It was a perfect match and a change of pace for the paint shop since they disassembled it completely to paint it!
