Is this hard to install?
You can get them through Donnelly at their website for ~$240 or others here have found them from different sources for slightly less.
I feel your pain! I had the same problem with the original mirror. I think it's worse for tall drivers 'cuz we're further from the mirror, making the view smaller. One more little thing Honda screwed up on, but that's another story.<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by VTEClover:
I've been thinking about installing this mirror since it has the outside temp sensor. I had this temp sensor feature on our previous 92 Dodge Caravan (which was integrated into the trip computer in the overhead console).
I was curious about this mirrors size (exact width at the largest part of the glass). Is it larger than the stock rear view mirror? Can you see any more than the stock mirror? I'd like a wider one than stock so I can see more than just out the back window. The Ody has more blind spots than our previous 92 Caravan due to the "thicker" walls (by the sliding door) and the headrests. I've removed the rear middle headrest to see more behind the van since we typically don't carry a full load of 7 folks.
As for installation, does it use the stock window mount or does it require removal of the stock mirror mount for a '01 Ody. I see that Donnelly has an Ody adapter button for the 2000 Ody (is the 2001 use the same mount adapter?).
If someone has the Gentex Night Vision Safety Mirror w/ compass and temp sensor mirror width that would be helpful too. But I like the design of the Donnelly ECT with the readings on the bottom of the mirror.</font>
