A few months ago, someone body-checked the passenger side mirror on my '98. There was no paint damage or scratches and the motor, etc. all still works. However, the plastic housing came loose, and I figured something had probably come apart, or broken. I finally took it to a local repair shop who I trusted to dig in and see if it could be repaired. Fortunately, it can be fixed by canibalizing another mirror assembly. Here's the bad part. The local dealer said that there were only a couple of assemblies available, that they would have to locate one and that it was now an OBSOLETE PART! It makes me sad to think that if it happens again, I could be SOL. We're actually using a parted assembly from a local recycler. Makes me wonder if I should locate another one and store it for an emergency. Anyway, my point is that my beloved BLU F O will be 16 in January and I hate to think of there being a point in the not too distant future where I won't be able to get a needed part. FYI, I finally turned 100,000 earlier this year and he is running like a top. I love my bug!
