Angry 2008 kia spectra auto driver side mirror stolen!

I'm so pissed off, so some boobs stole my driver side mirror, luckily they didn't have the brains to take both of them. So I'm kinda stuck in this situation not knowing the first thing I should be doing. I've looked around the net but none of them look like the one I had and also I don't know if the plastic housing is broken or not. I'm at work right now so pics will be uploaded tomorrow, but can someone post a tutorial of how to replace the side mirror of a kia spectra 08.

You can fin them on ebay. Pop off the plastic cover inside of the door where the mirror is, shold be three nuts holding mirror on. If it is a power mirror disconnect the plug also.

hmm what if i need to replace the whole thing, like the plastic housing? and do you know if the plug is inside the door cover? or does anyone know if any older spectra models might be a replacment option, like if I went to a junkyard and picked up an 06 side mirror ( housing and everything) would it be complatible with my 08?

i think 07 is when they changed from the 3rd gen body style so i wouldn't think an 06 mirror would work on an 08.

there is 3 bolts holding the mirror onto the door so if they took it off from the outside without getting into the vehicle, they probably didn't get the whole mirror but you will need the whole new mirror to replace it with.

Its kind of odd that someone would steal one mirror. Either you have an enemy or someone got a little to close and knocked the mirror off.

Go find a car like yours and steal their mirror. Spread the love!

Just kidding.

Never underestimate the power to SURPRISE!
