Broken Wind Wing/Air Vent/Guide Plate you pick

Hi, anyone ever replaced one of these parts, mine has snapped off totally and I have a new on order with my local dealer.
Is it easy to replace, if it matters it's the left hand side?????
Thanks Stevie

Yes, very easy. Take off the base-3 screws only, may have to loosen the mirror to get it loose and than only two screws hold this to it's base.

If you can't change this out you need to turn in your LT...

I installed some LED lights in mine... Looked pretty cool...

+1, and your man card will be on double secret probation.

The LED add on is called "Wings of Gold" if you would like to add it. It looks really good at night! I used amber lights, wired with my running lights. Some wire them into their turn signals. Either way, use quick disconnects on your wiring, or you will be cutting them off (or they will be hanging) the first time you need to pull the tupperware.

Absolutely. Replace them if missing or broken.
