    My 07 crewmax has the factory towing mirrors. Yesterday while driving the lower convex glass blew off, hit the side of truck just ahead of rear wheel well, chipped the paint ( I discovered later), and exploded in to bits when it hit the ground. I caught a glimpse of it when it let go and watched the whole thing in the upper part of the mirror.

    No big deal right? Just order new glass,... right?

    Called dealer. Parts guy says I can get the upper glass separate but the lower glass is only available with purchase of entire mirror assembly for 275.00 bucks. I expected the assembly to cost more but still kind of ridiculous.

    I'm going to check with local glass shop and some aftermarket vendors that supply the local body shops.

    Has anyone found a replacement part for these?

    damn I have a right side factory tow mirror with a cracked fin I was going to sell as a parts mirror, but I don't believe the bottom part is universal to either side.

    So at this point the glass shop can't get it because it's not offered by glass suppliers. ebay and scrappers are 140 to 160 on prices for a used one. I can get the whole mirror assembly brand new after market for 145. A freaking 20 dollar part. I'm thinking of having glass shop find something close and grind it down to fit. Love my tundra but not liking Toyota right now.

    Got a direct fit replacement from the glass shop. The first stop in the glass shop the person at counter couldn't locate one in the catalog. Catalog only showed the upper mirror. I went back Monday and the owner was there. He had a different catalog and ordered it for next day. 37 bucks installed.
