I'm brand new to this Nissan Cube Forum and have joined to help out my daughter who owns a 2010 named Max.
She had a driver side mirror that is attached now only by some strong gaffer tape. So we need help to (a) buy the correct replacement part and (b) understand some of the details in connecting the replacement part.
I'm assuming that we'll need an OEM replacement for the entire assembly, although the mirror and housing are not broken, just the connecting "arm" I guess you might call it.
I've searched the forum and have only found information about replacing the actual mirror glass.
My first step will be to start searching for replacement side view mirror units. I know from experience with the Honda Element (another "toaster!") which I own that there are vendors other than the dealer that sell OEM parts. Perhaps you have a recommendation of which vendors might be the best for the repair we need to make.
Thanks in advance for any advice you are able to offer!
EDIT 1: I have just searched for the replacement unit on the Nissan USA eStore site and have found this:
I have also found the part on NissanPartsDeal.com for $175.50
What information do I need to share to understand if I need to purchase the entire "mirror skull" unit or if I just need some individual parts to make the repair? Would a photo help?
