My mom was driving the altima today when somehow she hit something (a stone wall i think) with the driver side mirror when leaving a driveway. The mirror is fine, but the cover over it shattered and fell off. She called the nissan dealer (the overcharing, lying scumbags of County Line Nissan of middlebury/watertown). They told her that the entire mirror would need to be replaced, and that it would need to be taken to a body shop to be painted. This doesn't make any sense, because the mirror cover just snaps in place, and I would think it would come prepainted. How much are the activetuning light-up side mirror covers? Is there any way to purchase the OEM cover by itself? Inside the mirror cover is a sticker with the number "21337BKH3".. don't know what this means...

You can buy the outer cover seperately. It only comes in a gray primer and it lists for around $6.00. The left side part number should be 96374-3Z000. I am assuming this is for a 02-03 Altima.

wow thanks. Who knows how much the dealer was going to charge me for a power heated mirror. They specifically told my mom that you cannot purchase just the cover. If only these mirrors folded, then this wouldn't have happened.

Psst. The KH3 part of the num is your color, Black, I assume?
That will be handy when bringing it to a paint shop to paint it.
All blacks are KH3 unless they have metallic or stuff in it..but there is only one black on all model lines of cars...

The question now is, how can this be ordered? I want to order it, then drive over to my nissan dealer to spite them since they wanted to sell me the whole mirror... then I'd have them paint it.

I went to the Buckeye nissan site from the advertisement in the forum and asked them about it. I asked about pricing, and whether they can prepaint it before shipment.

Someone stole my side mirror cover one night. I went straight to the dealer (parts department) and bought the side cover for $8 if I remember correctly and took it to one of the auto body shops where I live. They charged me $25 to paint it. Perfect match! It costs me under $40 to replace the whole thing.
