new mirror glass
what am I going to have to pay to get a new mirror glass on my passenger side mirror, and whats a good place to buy them? I have the power, heated mirror with turn signals. I cracked mine trying to clean around it today.

all I did was crack the glass its self, can i just get a new piece of glass and replace it in the backing?
Yes you can.
Someone broke my mirror last winter, the glass was hanging by the wires (same features as yours, but part number is probably different). I went to dealer to get one, they told me glass was around $250 and new mirror around $500. He didn't have one in stock, so I said "I'll be back" (guess I was quoting Arnold, lol), anyway, upon closer inspection, the post from the turning motor was also broken, so I got a new mirror.
The $250 was Canadian, I checked on line and found US prices a lot cheaper, I bought a new GM mirror, in the US for $220.
A friend of mine had the same issue. He bought a piece of glass that just stuck over the old one. It has holes in it for the signal lights to shine thru. It was around $30. I do not think that the heated feature works anymore, but is was better then $200. He went to a local autoglass place and they had it. This place has it for around $65 http://www.wheelskin.com/burcomirror...RADO&year=2004 I think that you would want part#
Or Ebay has them with the backing plate, so you just snap the new one on http://www.ebay.com/itm/MIRROR-GLASS...sories&vxp=mtr

LOL Just what I was going to recommend. I get all my mirrors from Amazon, and many of the parts I use for vehciel repairs (both engine and cosmetic). It's tough to beat the prices there, even the local shops just shake their heads. And with Prime, I even get free videos. LOL
Some things, like spark plugs are still cheaper local, but if you've got 2 days to wait for it, you can often save 20% or more on expensive parts like throttle bodies, O2 sensors, and the like.
So do I need to order any one specifically since I have the powered, memory, light sensitive, heated, blinkered mirrors, or do I just get the glass with the blinker holes?
The glass has the connections for the signal, the heat and the photochromic feature.
