Unfortunately somebody pinched the cover of my Focus drivers side wing mirror and put a noticeable crack in the black plastic part. I just wondered if I could just buy a replacement cover for it or will I need to buy the whole unit because of the damage.
Could anyone recommend a site to get a reasonbly priced replacement part and would it be easy to install myself.
I have attached some pictures to show the location of the crack.

I got a £250 quote from Fords for this repair which seems a tad steep. Does anyone know of a cheaper alternative?

I take it it's a mk1 focus,it looks like it from the photo.You can pick these up on ebay or http://www.fordpartsuk.com/shop/focus_primed_door_mirror_cover_rh_679.htm.Some have a painted option http://www.wingmirrorman.co.uk/focus.html.Should be cheap enough from fords or euro car parts, and its just snap on fit

Just put one on mine this afternoon. £20 on ebay and about 20 minutes to change it over. The one I got had a cover that was primed ready for painting. I'll leave that until the weather gets warmer, so I just used the one off the old mirror, even though it is rather marked and scuffed. (It's been hit 3 times in the last couple of months!)

I got one from my local scrappy cost about £40ish dead easy to change.

I'm thinking of replacing the plastic casing/housing on the passenger mirror as its scraped, does the casing just pop off?
Is there anywhere in particular you need to prise it to get it off?
