Backed out of the garage a little fast the other day. The piece of plastic molding that holds the side mirror in place got ripped up a bit. Clear packaging tape is holding it in place right now. The dealership wants $120 for the whole assembly, plus $200 for installation (they have to paint the mirror cowling). They won't sell me just the molding. It looks like I can remove the existing cowling and swap it with the new (unpainted) cowling. Then put the old cowling and new molding piece back on the door. A call to a junkyard was even worse: they would only sell me an entire door (didn't even ask how much). Any other ideas; I think the molding is only a $20-$30 part; the mirror and cowling is the expensive part.
