Time to get the mirror out of the car IMMEDIATELY when you see this, as this fluid will eventually leak all over your interior, and it's destructive as hell from what I've read.

I found an SOS *and* Homelink-equipped mirror on Ebay and quickly snagged it. From what I can tell, this combo is fairly rare. When it arrived, turned out the day/night fluid has was causing a small bubble in this one too. I got the Ebay seller to rebate me $50 and got it rebuilt for $99 from radar-mirror.com, now it's good as new. Simple plug-n-play replacement, and after programming, Homelink works fine.

I'd comb Ebay for the same mirror, one will turn up eventually if not there now. Very happy with the end results in my case.
