I was scraping my tow mirrors after an ice storm this weekend and pressed too hard on the glass and it cracked (don’t make fun of me I was desperate). Turns out I’m an idiot and my truck has heated mirrors (always wondered what that button did). I would prefer to just replace the glass on the mirrors but I’m pretty sure that the tow mirrors are after market and I can’t find the glass that is shaped like them. Anyone have an idea of what website to check? Or do I just have to get a whole new mirror assembly. Your help is greatly appreciated ?? (Below are the mirrors I have)

Amazon and note sometimes the whole side mirror is cheaper than just the glass

This same search also shows just the mirror glass, upper or lower, left or right

  • I would probably call manufacturer for part number if these are aftermarket

I’m just trying to find the glass for it, thanks though.
Use the link I provided.

The glass is available.

You didn't provide vehicle info, so I guessed.
The upper and the lower glass is available through GM.
The glass comes attached to the backing plate.
The backing plate pops on and off the mirror motor.
The backing plate contains the heating element.
You can also remove the broken mirror with the backing plate, take to a window glass shop and they can cut mirror glass for you.
I won't look as good as factory; but it will work.
You can also take the truck to the glass shop and they will remove and replace.

I meant to say call the after market manufacturer for the part # of just the glass
