My wife recently whacked the passenger side mirror on the way out of our garage. Needless to say, a chunk of plastic from the housing is now missing, and the mirror is beat up pretty bad. The window motor seems fine.

We've got a silver 2012 Ford Focus S (base model) with the 5-speed manual. Looking around, I keep seeing the entire mirror assembly for sale between $150-$200. This seems crazy for a non-heated mirror with no turning signal light on the back.

Is this worth trying some junk yards for, or does anyone know of a place online I could get an OEM match more affordably?

Also, can anyone recommend some instructions on how to replace this thing? It looks like some trim on the interior might come off on the door pillar, and I'm hoping there are just a few nuts under there to remove.

Checking your local salvage/junk yards is always a good place to start. You should be able to call them up and see if they have any Mk3 Foci in stock, and they may even be able to tell you if there are still mirrors on them without you having to waste a trip.

Crazy how prices are for something new. Mirrors for an MK1, motorized, are $20...

Have you Looked at RockAuto? they always have good prices.

Annoyingly enough, RockAuto mostly has the mirrors with indicators (which the base model doesn't have). Also, none of the listed mirrors say anything about being OE replacements.
