How to change the Drivers side mirror enclosure

My drivers side mirror (2016 Base) enclosure had light damage, which cracked the enclosure along the seam on the end facing out from the car.

The plastic enclosure has the large front facing piece, and then the part that surrounds the glass. Its the part that surrounds the glass, that cracked. Not super noticeable, but the fact that its open makes me worried that moisture will get in.

How difficult is it to replace the surround?

I can get photos later if that would help.

Thanks in advance!

looks like you MIGHT be talking about parts 6 or 12?

You'll have to carefully remove the mirror itself to get to the screws to take apart the housing to replace it.


Look on this DIY as a reference as they should be similar

It doesnt really match the part listed. Its this piece, that the red arrow is pointing to:



It doesn't seem to match anything. Don't really want to take to dealer as I'm sure they will tell me I have to replace entire sideview mirror.
