Hello all. I'm a newbie, just purchased a Pacifica Hybrid last week, and like many I'm extremely irritated that Chrysler does not offer certain options with the hybid. I'm mostly annoyed with the power folding mirrors because I have an extremely narrow garage door as well. Knowing the power folding mirrors are an option available on the other Pacifica models, I asked whether the dealer would offer it as an option for me. They gave me a crap answer, essentially saying they can't do it and some nonsense about not even being able to get the parts (which as we all know is BS because I found the parts available online after doing a 5 minute Google search). So there is probably a liability factor, and it's possible they simply don't know what they are doing since the vehicle model is so new. I actually need to stop at the dealer tonight after work for a non-related issue, so I am planning to talk to my service rep face-to-face to see what he says. I like the idea of talking to a body shop though. I might do that because I really would like to get power folding mirrors. Would love to just do this myself but I have 3 kids 6 yrs old and younger so I just don't have time to deal with it. I plan to keep this thing for a while so it is going to suck if I have to manually fold the mirrors in every time I park in my own garage.

Passenger side mirror - how to replace

I cracked my passenger side mirror, and ordered an OEM color matched replacement from BAM Wholesale Parts and it was $264 with shipping and all. I replaced it this past weekend by myself. There is one nut that is extremely difficult to get to and that took me a good 1 hr getting it off and then putting it back on. Overall it took me approx 2.5 hrs. The dealer wanted over $200 for labor and they were going to charge me more for the mirror so it was going to be $500 or so total.

Note: Based on an e-mail exchange with BAM, there are 3 related parts that I'm aware of. 1.) The complete mirror assembly with the glass mirror, motor, wiring - everything. 2.) The glass mirror itself. Not sure how to replace just this though. 3.) Set of nuts if you somehow couldn't reuse the existing ones (I did reuse them).

I was every impressed with the door panel fasteners. They are plastic but good quality and are reusable. They went back in fine and the panel looks perfectly seated after I was done. I was expecting some flimsy fasteners that break easily but Chrysler impressed me with this.

Tools required
- Panel removal tool (to remove door panel)
- 10 mm socket set with wobble extension (I didn't know what a wobble extension was until I did this and borrowed my neighbor's)
- A small table or platform to rest the door panel on while it's hanging from the door. The instructions were not clear on how to completely remove the door panel so I just left it hanging from the door. It was not in my way so not a big issue.
- Service manual with instructions. I was able to get a copy of the Chilton instructions. It could use more details, but it was better than starting from zero.

I'm attaching some pics here for reference. If you need more info, contact me.

Any update on this? I am in a similar situation where my 2018 hybrid touring L has about an inch on either side pulling into the garage with mirrors extended. I have seen the replacement mirrors available along with the window/lock/mirror switch cluster, but I have not been able to tell if the wiring harness/plug/computer settings will be there to tie these all together.
