10 days in the vehicle and I've already damaged it …. guess the extra 5" of width over my last vehicle got me … backing out of the garage paying attention to not hit another vehicle in our driveway and struck the garage door jamb w/ the right passenger side mirror. It looks like the mirror itself and the external housing is fine, but the black plastic interior housing is completely shattered. Unfortunately the Passport mirrors bend back but do not bend forward, otherwise it would have been ok.

Anyone by chance run into having a side-mirror replaced yet? As if there isn't enough going on negative already, gotta love damaging a brand new vehicle …

I broke a mirror off my mom's '88 Pontiac Bonneville when I was learning to drive. I'm 45 years old and she still won't let me drive her car! :LOL:

The Passport is 6.1" wider than my Chevy Equinox. I've been driving it two months and I'm still getting used to parking. I don't know what I would do if I had a full size pickup.

"Objects in mirror are closer than they appear" should be "Objects near mirror are REALLY CLOSER than they appear"
Very sorry about your mishap. It hurts just to view your picture. :cry:

Few years ago a neighbor backing her Lexus SC430 into garage, too close to garage jamb and started to lightly scrape her passenger mirror, panicked and over-corrected her steering and scraped her front fender into the side of her hubby's Acura fender. Trifecta damage. Ouch. She never backed her car into their garage since.

You can check parts websites like Hondapartsnow.com. Looks like you would need part # 76203-TG7-A02. Appears very reasonable but also appears would require complete disassembly of the mirror and then reassembly into the new housing. But, may save you a few hundred bucks.

That part number is for the ExL trim so whatever you have, I would plug into the site. I believe the mirrors may all be the same regardless of trim level, however.

So I got a quote from local auto body ---- $670 for parts, $100 for labor. I thought that was too high, would get other quotes. The guy calls me back 10 minutes later, said he priced out the wrong mirror … mine is $240. Apparently the higher trim levels mirrors are triple the cost … or he was just playing me to see how much I'd pay!

I think I found that same part last night. They do sell the parts separate, I think it was like $35? The body shop of course found a few other pieces were broken though so just said I needed the whole unit. If it wasn't a lease I'd be cheap about it but since it isn't technically mine and I damaged it figure I better just go for the whole thing.

Yes, that’s the one. Mine is a lease too. If yours is through Honda, they give you a $1000 or so “wear and tear” allowance in the lease agreement so keep that in mind.

But even if you replace it, I wouldn’t pay the labor. Mirrors are generally very easy to replace.

My house has a double car garage but with 2 single entry garage doors. A while back I remodeled the master bathroom and had the double vanity mirror (65" wide) left over. Decided to mount it on the back wall because I always back into the garage so that I get out of the vehicle to the center of the garage. Also used some orange surveyor ribbon I had laying around and used it to place a centerline over the mirror. So when I back up to my garage I line up the center of the PP (rear wiper housing hump in the window) with the center mullion of the garage door. Open the garage door and look to see that the orange centerline is in line with the center of the PP and adjust as needed as backing in. Also pull in the power mirrors because it's still a close fit. Nice thing is I can see the whole vehicle in the mirror as I back in and ensure not to hit anything. It was definitely easier to back in my 2013 Accord! Haha, still can't get my wife to moved the PP from or into the garage, she's very happy with her 2018 CRV that she pulls in head first!

Creative method for parking. Our house has a 3 car garage with one double door and one single door. For some unknown reason when the house was built the garage was insulated, but the garage doors were not. Not long after we bough the house the single car garage door opener pooped out. We decided to take the chain drive motor from the double door to the single door and put in a screw drive for the double door. We also put in insulated garage doors. When we did this we also put in little laser pointer parking pointers on the ceiling.

When I pull in I line the center of the hood on a spot on the wall and watch for the laser pointer to land on the center of the front dash grill. That leaves me plenty of room to walk in front of the vehicle and open the tailgate without worrying about hitting the garage door.

Not really, Just basic red dot lasers like used in presentation pointers. I wasn't planning on putting them in, but the wife has no freaking depth perception when she is seated in the drivers seat of her car. She would pull into the right side of the garage and leave enough room for a passenger to easily get in. When I say easily get in, she would get so far from the wall that the passenger door could be fully opened with several inches to spare. That meant that there was hardly any room between her vehicle and mine. Put in the laser parking spots, guided her car in so she was in her part of the garage and set the pointer to hit a spot in the middle of her dash. Now we can walk between our two vehicles when they are in the garage.
