Hi all,

Can someone who owns a 2004 subaru forester XT tell me the
diagonal length of the driver side mirror (ie the line from top right
corner of the mirror to lower left corner)?

My mirror is cracked, and I tried several glass shops but the mirror
they have in the catalog (www burcoinc dot com) for this model is 6 15/16
across whereas the one I have is around 7 15/16 across.

So I am puzzled - either I have some kind of aftermarket mirrors
(I am not the original owner), or the catalog is wrong. I haven't
been able to find out the dimensions from the dealers, and I'd
like to do that before ordering thru them and getting charged for the part.

Any help on this mystery would be appreciated! Are you forester XT mirrors around 7 inches across or is it more like 8?

Thank you!
Max.

Using a cheap tape measure I get 7 7/8" on mine.

I went through the same thing. They are HEATED mirrors. It seems they ony market the less expensive, Forester X, type smaller replacement that are not heated.

Bite the bullet for the $80 dealer heated glass replacement or find someone selling their old XT mirrors like I did.
