Air bubble in e46 m3 oval rear view mirror?

Has this happened to any of you? I got jumped into my car after my classes and there was a huge air bubble in the mirror (i think it happened because of too much heat?). Any more info. is much appreciated. And where can I order a replacement? I couldn't find one on Thanks.

mirror is bad. You need to get a new mirror asap or the liquid inside your mirror will begin to leak onto your interior and ruin it.Go to this website: Here is their number to contact them as well. (616)392-6911 or (800) 456-4265. There is also a thread on this very topic if you do a search. GL!

I just filled out the form monday and they are shipping me a new mirror today for $ just return defective mirror when you receive new one.

It's super easy to remove as well...tons of instructions around here.
Pry open plastic case like a clam in middle (small flathead helps unless you have longer nails)
Twist base of mirror (not mirror glass part) counter clockwise
Disconnect wires
