First junkyard fix

Today was the first time I picked my own part and fixed something on my car. I know, I'm late to the game.
The passenger side mirror on the E28 was toast, the white plastic part that holds the mirror to the motors was just half there. The other half was just...gone.
After some internet digging I found out that BMW used the same part for decades. The local LKQ had a few E36 sitting around, so I headed out to take a look.
It was pretty easy getting in and finding a donor, and the longest part was waiting to check out. I ended up pulling the whole motor assembly because I couldn't get just the white plastic part out.
Got back home and had the new one installed in just a few minutes. Turns out it was was easier to just replace the whole motor and plastic part, and the wiring and attachment was exactly the same.
Score one for junkyards.
Tomorrow I'm off to Austin to pull a diff from a Z3....

@houstonrunner I love junkyards! They can be such a fun place.
Nice work tracking down the right parts and getting it fixed up!
