2015 Energi, 2 months old. *sigh* The other day, I managed to knock my driver's side-view mirror against a post while backing up. The unit pivoted forward as designed, but not before the whole front glass and the body-colored plastic covering on the back broke off. The mechanism itself (motor, supplemental turn signal) appears to be working, but the dealer is offering nothing beyond a full replacement of the complete unit. Anyone know a less-expensive alternative? It's a leased vehicle, so I have to repair it fully one way or the other. Thanks. {Jonathan}

Nope!  Complete mirror assembly will be required.

Actually, I'm not so sure. I did some research, and visited my local Ford store today. It *appears* that the glass, mirror cover and signal lamp can all be ordered separately, with the glass and signal lamp also available as part of the mirror assembly (the mirror cover isn't), and that they *appear* to snap into place. The costly bit will be getting the mirror cover painted to match the body. I found this diagram that shows the different pieces (I need 3, 5, and 9):

I'll let people know what I end up doing. Thanks. {Jonathan}

More on this: the parts list shows two possible mirror assemblies: telescoping and non-telescoping. I didn't know that C-MAXes have telescoping mirrors--how do I know if mine does?

It's not telescoping. If the outer shell housing is damaged (isn't that what you said) you'll need a new mirror assembly.

IF the housing isn't broken and the pivot isn't damaged, the parts you broke should be available to repair it.

You might need to get the body color cover painted if it's not available to match.

I misdescribed--what popped off was the mirror cover. The housing itself seems intact. Thanks! {Jonathan}

Why not try and pick up a used mirror from a salvage yard?  Try this link and search for 2013-2015 models.  A lot of mirrors, and some even in your color.

That's a great resource, thanks! As it happens, I've ordered just the parts I need, new, from an online Ford parts dealer, plus spray cans of matched-color paint (which will also work for my UX-coded 2011 Taurus), and it's all around $200. I'll try to post pics once I get and install everything. {Jonathan}
