    Need to replace my passenger side power mirror. Dealer wants $345 parts/labor. I can get an after market mirror for 99 bucks. Is there a plug in for the replacement or should I pay the dealer $139 to install and avoid problems?

    You have to take the door panel off to get to the plugs for the mirror. Depends on how mechanical you are. I know it seems it expensive but the dealer won't break your door panel, if so they will replace it, instead of you replacing it if you break it.

    I had to replace my driver's side mirror. It's a piece of cake. If you've ever used a screwdriver, you can install this thing.

    Don't be afraid of your truck. It's designed to be easy to work on.
