I do yard work, even do what maintenance I can on the lawn mower and handle what I can on the house, but draw the line at working on cars.
At least for my mirror the replacement is:
1> pop off trim piece
2> remove nuts
3> unplug wire harness (12 pin plug IIRC)
4> set aside old mirror
5> put new mirror in place
6> bolt it on
7> plug in wire harness
8> put trim piece back

10 minutes work - worth $77 to me. (although I think I'd find one for cheaper than $190 - possibly at a junkyard)

I'm fairly certain you could do it if you wanted to try - or pay your kid to do it. I think most any HS student could manage to do it.
