Are the OEM side mirror covers pre-painted? Posted by NCCaniac [Email] (#352) [Profile/Gallery] (more from NCCaniac) on Mon, 31 Aug 2020 14:02:01 Members do not see ads below this line. - Help Keep This Site Online - Signup
For OEM part number 32019316 side mirror assembly (passenger side), is the mirror cover pre-painted? I picked up one of those a couple of years ago and had it on the shelf as the passenger side mirror was starting to exhibit the usual brown discoloration from the auto-dimming function.
I recently accidentally damaged that side mirror so I was glad to have the part already on the shelf. When I opened it, the mirror cover looks very close in color to the silver paint on my 9-5, but I can't tell if it is pre-painted or just the color of the molded plastic itself. Looking at the part on eEuroparts catalog, it shows one with a red cover so it would seem it might be pre-painted. I just don't remember from when I purchased it. If it is pre-painted, great. If not, I probably should paint it so it won't fade out as the plastic is exposed to UV rays.
