The angles for the mirror from '94 to '95 are different as far as I know. I haven't seen 95+ power mirrors for sale in North America.

Which side do you need?

Junkyard Diving (very similar to dumpster diving but a whole lot more politically acceptable to wives :D )is your only solution to the floppy vent problem That I have found. the last 95 metro I did took vents from 3 different cars to fix. The good news is the parts are the same from 1995-2001 (U.S. Market at least.) Maybe our resident fabricator (Fainya) or another practitioner of the black arts could come up with a repair, Anyone????? Best wishes Each, Jonathan

Where in canada are you. I just sraped a 95 but I took the mirror off. As for the vents it had the same problem but maybe some glue could fix it.
