It isn't too bad during the day but at night the looking though the mirror is really blurry.
I have been reading some stuff about electrochromatic fluid?
Any way to fix this?
Ironically I noticed the passenger mirror one day and the next day the drivers mirror was bad?

Did you by chance have your car serviced right before you noticed?

I don't think you're going to have any luck fixing it. Why not just pick up a used one on eBay?

No but it sat in my 2 car wide driveway for 10 days when I was on vacation.
I noticed the passenger mirror after work my first day back. Then the driver the second day.

I thought someone hit it but it was in the driveway and even then that would only explain the driver side which has open driveway next to it.
When I was gone it was 90 one day then 50 at night. Mb temperature swings? It is old I guess.

I have the same issue on my drivers side mirror.
I have been meaning to get around to it, but I hardly drive the car much. When I do, it's usually during the daytime anyway

Here's a company who specializes in repairing the glass (easily removeable).
Not sure if the interior and exterior are different from a technology perspective.
