I remember getting my car, and it didn't have a right hand mirror. Be it that the back window is so huge, and all the windows are so huge, it's not really a problem, but it does make your car look better and more "balanced" having one. You can get a use one for less than ~$50 on ebay click here. Here is how I installed mine:

1. Pop off that Metal cover

2. Unscrew that Screw

3. Then you can pop off that external cover (the screw was holding it in)

4. Put the new Mirror on, like so:

5. This is the problem I ran into, unless you get an internal cover plate, like I did, with a hole, you're going to have to drill a hole. You're also going to have to SLIDE off that handle, study it a while and it will make sense and come off.

6. Done, and Done, a hold has been drilled.

7. Monkey it on there.
