2010 Armada platinum passenger mirror

So I hit a parked car with my passenger mirror. Everything is intact except the actual mirror (shattered) and 2 of the tabs that hold it in place to the power mirror actuator.
1. Is the cheaper route buying a aftermarket mirror assembly and swapping the internals over into my housing?? (Platinum has the power fold feature)
2. Has anyone ever took the mirror assembly apart?
3. Does anyone have a passenger mirror with the turn signal in the glass for sale?

Any help is greatly appriciated guys.

This car is what I look like on the inside.

dont go cheap. you can get a good oem mirrors of that year on salvage, craigslist, etc. you dont have to purchase a new one.

three screws (recall for memory on a 2008 i used to have) under a stuck on piece of tape looking stuff on the side door there and the harness connects there in the door. easy peasy.

im sure there are how tos on replacing the mirror on youtube. look from 2006 onwards to 2010 in armada,titan, and qx as they were all on the same line in alabama....

Did a little more research and found the service manual online. I broke 2 of the tabs that click into the mirror position actuator. So I really just need a new mirror (glass only). I'm surprised at how hard it is to find Armada parts on Craiglist or even in junkyards. Just to get a good laugh I went to my local Nissan dealer and asked how much for just a replacement mirror..... $427.28 its cost even more than the mirror housing ($325)


*update
Just found a used passenger mirror (assembly and glass) w/ power fold option on ebay $55. So happy! Wife almost divorced me last night for hitting "her" truck guess I'll just drive my Audi wagon and stay away from her Armada lol
