That's not the worst of it, but it is definitely worth it. I wouldn't trade the car seat for any mod out there!

Sounds like a pretty great plan Mike! Even if I can get $50 or $75 for them.

Oops...I misread your post...you weren't thinking about getting the tow mirrors used, sorry.
Anyway, yep...every little bit helps. I am planning putting my one good mirror out on craigslist soon...I'll probably put the other one up as well because I did see a couple people looking for the glass, but you know me, I am an expert in procrastination due to my many years of practice.

No..you don't have to take the mirror off. It's easier to leave the mirror mounted. The spring is housed in the outside portion of where the 2 extensions that support the mirror stem from. It's opposite the triangle shaped portion that's on the inside that houses the 3 mounting studs. The cover pops off pretty easily. Just take a flat tip screwdriver and slide in the slit where the plastic pieces meet. I inserted in the underside portion just in case I slipped. Let me know if you are having any trouble locating and I can go snap some pics. I also have pics of the spring itself from when I tightned my mirror up if you need as well. Lastly, I pasted the instructions below that I used, as they were easy to follow.
If your mirrors are vibrating, remove the plastic cover over the hinge, remove the four screws that hold the hinge cover plate in place, remove the spring and insert approximately 1/8" stack of washers under the spring seat and reassemble. This increases the spring pressure against the arm detent and stops the vibration. BTW, if you purchase the correct ones for your model year they are a direct plug in. Been there, done that!
