    So, We just had our windshield replaced by a good local company and when I sat in the car the mirror seemed lower, took some measurements and the mirror is mounted almost 2 inches lower than stock. The black "printing" on the new windshield extends down past the little dot stippeling. Just an FYI/Buyer Beware for all you out there. it is really annoying and there is nothing the glas sshop can or is willing to do about it apparently because that is how they come from the aftermarket factory. Just check your glass before you get everything replaced. I may end up having to pay to have a brand new windshield removed and replaced.

    Wow there is no way I would accept that answer. If it’s a defective windshield they should replace it. I had Safelite replace one for a OEM one due to the rain sensor not working on the aftermarket on a Range Rover I had.

    Recall that they're double jointed. There are two pivot points, not one. Took me 3 years to figure that out in my last vehicle. Always wished it was higher... then I finally figured out how to get it higher.

    Not suggesting you're wrong here. If it's mounted lower that would be annoying.

    When I had my tacoma the rear view mirror is really low , well I found a guy on the forums who makes a mount that raises it about two inches and is a great investment, could look into those ? Mine sold with the taco wished I’d taken it off ..

    I purchased the Tacoma riser. We will see if it works. The glass shop is apparently having phone issues . I'm not giving up but at least the mirror will be out if the way until this is resolved.

    First rock chip. Wasn't even that hard of a hit. At least my insurance company repairs chips for free. Used safelight, came to my door.

    Where do you live? Most states do not allow a deductible for auto glass replacements.

    Went to my insurance agency this morning. Glass company should call me soon. Replacement will be free of charge and they come to the house.

    They just about all do now. Even in the winter they heat the sealant right in their truck.
