    My driver side mirror was vibrating so i tightened all three torx screws on the outside. They got a little rounded out. I noticed the one that is exposed is starting to rust a little. Does anyone know if theirs are rusting as well? Is this something to even worry about-will probably rust over time anyways. I tried to buy three replacement screws, but they come as part of the whole mirror assembly. I posted in the other forum asking if anyone would sell them to me from their damaged mirror. I know it's nitpicky, but the truck only has 3500 miles on it!

    I just checked mine. Same mileage as yours. No rust. You could always spray it with rustoleum if it really bothered you.

    reminds me i need to check mine. they move a little when the bass hits. lol and i don’t even have subs yet. i’ll see if they are rusty. be back in 5.

    edit: i only see 1 on each side. no rust. other 2 must be behind the little trim cap or what ever.

    Thanks for checking. You are correct that the other two are behind the plastic cover. Wonder where I can get a replacement from. Just irritating that it's basically new and rusting!

    Unfortunately the dealer doesn't sell them separately. They come as part of a whole assembly.

    Anyone else experiencing rust on the exposed mirror screw on an earlier year other than 2011?
