    Several years ago, I bought & installed JDM side mirrors with turn signals & puddle lights (probably from MITAccessories?). The passenger side mirror has been damaged in a side-swipe, and I need a new painted shell. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to get a reply from the guy who sold me the original hardware thru his E-Bay page.

    Does anyone know either how to contact this person, or another source for the passenger side mirror body cover? I’ll take unpainted if it’s available & get it painted locally.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for this. I went thru all the entries for Prius, and didn't find what I was looking for.

    The crazy thing is, the mirror covers are probably still available in the Toyota parts catalog outside the US, but not available from Toyota in the US. Other countries got the turn-signal mirrors, as far as I know.

    Sometimes you have to search with odd terms, such as ZVW30, it brings up more/different results. Also the Voxy/Auris names are used in Japan as well.

    I found a link to a company in Taiwan (TopSage) that’s working on an estimate for the parts.

    None of the overseas parts sources were any help in my search for the painted mirror shell. It occurred to me last month to try calling a Toyota dealership in Vancouver, BC on the chance that Toyota sold Prii with turn signal mirrors. They did! The dealership had the painted shell with the turn signal cut out in stock, and I drove up there last week to buy it. The dealership couldn't ship it to me because of "technicalities" (exporters, etc), but it was fun to drive up to Vancouver for the day.

    Here is a picture of the part with its part number for the passenger side mirror:
