This was the second time in 5 weeks that my wife has taken out the passenger side mirror of her 2013 Toyota van. Exact same damage....slapped into something.
The entire assembly needs to be replaced again! Back to the Yoyota parts counter again..... as hell

Bummer. I bet your wife is feeling pretty bad about it too.

Maybe you should just leave it broken until winter is over. Why have to fix it again? LOL

Yep, and it's gonna cost her yet another $300+ just for the part. At least I'm saving her the $150 installation charge since I'm doing the installation (again).

Not being a wise guy, but has had her vision checked recently?

Valid point. I actually thought about that yesterday. And I agree she needs to have her vision checked out.

Good thinking Andy. I didn't think of that. Good vision slips away so subtly that it is easy to miss.

There could be something wrong with her peripheral vision. A lot of things can affect it. An infected tooth, a bang (even a very light one) on her head, whiplash, etc. Have her see an ophthalmologist, not an optometrist.

A good optometrist should detect glaucoma, which is what normally would be the cause of loss of peripheral vision.
