Default Need to replace interior rear view mirror

I proudly own a 2005 PT Cruiser Convertible. When they first came out, I thought they were the ugliest car on the road. And then I fell in love with it.

At this point, a lot of things are starting to break. The latest is the interior rear view mirror. The day/night flip thing broke the other day. The mirror works fine otherwise. One option is to just manually move the mirror when I drive at night. I'm guessing that this can't be fixed (taken apart and the fixed somehow).

I'm having trouble finding a replacement interior rear view mirror part. I've looked at countless websites, and have searched this forum for other postings, but haven't come up with much. Any help? Thank you.

I also have an 05 convertible and had the same problem. It's been a few years and I unfortunately don't remember what I did to fix it anymore. I remember pulling it apart, finding a problem and fixing it so I can say it's possible to open it up and it has held up since I fixed it.

You could get a used OEM one on e-bay or shop around for an after-market one.

On convertibles the main dome light is built into the rear view mirror body for obvious reasons. Most have the compass and outside temperature readout built into them as well.

Yes, would have to visit the dealer or one of the online mopar super vendors or visit local Junky and hope a carcass has made an appearance. Note haven scene any ragtops at my local yard but at some point I am sure they will start showing up.

I believe the original poster has gotten the info he wanted and may or not be back. Just to finish out the topic, I was looking at my mirror, it looks a lot like the one on ebay that Lion7718 posted a llink to. All my other convertibles had specialty mirrors, but the PT may be an exception.

On my Dreamcruiser the main dome light is built into the Easter basket handle. Is that not the same on other verts?

I sometimes have to ask because the Dreamcruiser did some things a little different.

There are little dome lights on all the convertible basket handles but the majority of light in the front seat area seems to come from the bulbs built into the mirror. It's all a big improvement from classic convertibles that only had footwell lamps.
