In this installment of Saving Silverado, we have a super easy upgrade that most anyone can perform without the need for any special tools. We’re upgrading the stock power side mirrors to those with built-in turn signals.
As we eventually realized, the passenger mirror on this Silverado suffered from a broken motor assembly and would basically just flop around in the housing. We could set it but every time we closed the door it would move.
With exterior parts like plastic mirrors, oftentimes you’ll find they have a weathered look to them, especially if the vehicle has high mileage. That said, if you replace one, it may look out of place on the vehicle given you still have a weathered one on the vehicle. You can restore them to some extent, but they are rarely quite the same in the end.
That said, we decided to pick up some new mirrors, but these would be the upgraded models that have the integrated turn signals in them. The mirrors (part numbers KSC-62133G and KSC-62134G) are OE replacements from Summit Racing Equipment. They are made by K-Source, retail for under 100 bucks apiece, and rather than having a solid ABS exterior surface, they feature a smooth front panel that can be color matched to your vehicle for a little extra detail.
Installing the mirrors couldn’t be any easier really.
