GruvenParts.com is pleased to announce replacement strengthened BRASS spur gears premounted to stainless main shafts and high torque motors for the power folding mirrors on all 2013-2018 RAM 1500 and 2500 trucks including Big Horn, Express, Laramie, Lone Star, Outdoorsman, Rebel, ST, Sport Crew and Tradesmen with crew, standard or extended cabs!  Buy qty of 2 to fix both mirrors and SAVE!

Note you can also buy the complete metal cased drive units for both passenger and driver side if you do not wish to complete the labor required to install the upgraded high torque motor and metal gear.  We accomplish this for you on the complete drive unit option and please note there is a $30 core refund for sending back your drive unit in repairable condition (ie, center basket not broken, or unit otherwise damaged beyond repair).

As many have discovered, the power folding mirror assembly on these trucks suffers from a thin, weak, plastic spur gear mounted to the main drive shaft.  The plastic spur gear cracks at the slightest impact or just wears out over time causing an inoperable folding mirror.  The RAM mirror motors also get weak and die quickly. Unfortunately, RAM will only sell you a complete folding mirror assembly, which will cost you MORE THAN $800 ea after labor, depending on the year/make/model.  And that $ would be wasted on yet another mirror assembly with another weak, plastic factory spur gear and weak electric motor that will also soon fail.  Don't your waste time or hard earned money on more RAM mirrors that will also soon fail!  UPGRADE TO LIFETIME WARRANTY METAL GEARS AND HIGH TORQUE MOTORS !

GruvenParts.com has addressed this issue by designing a strengthened spur gear made from solid gear BRASS with a thicker cross section to eliminate the stress concentrations which cause fatigue cracking in the OEM plastic gear. We have also designed a replacement high torque electric motor to accompany this new metal gear. Our new electric motor is required when switching out to the metal gear, as the ground circuit in the OEM motor does not allow for a metal gear to be installed. You can buy the gear/motor combo for one or both sides with the spur gear pre-attached to a new machined steel main shaft.  We have thoroughly tested our redesigned spur gear and high torque motor using a new, OEM mirror assembly and computerized test equipment.  Our test samples barely showed any wear whatsoever, and the testing did include random wacks against the mirror, jamming the mirror operation as it was folding, and manually stressing the mechanism all in an attempt the break the gear.  Each sample was tested more than 5,000 open/close cycles and was still going strong at that point !  

This product carries a LIFETIME WARRANTY!  Provided you don't burn the vehicle, or otherwise smash the mirror into something, you can send back the motor drive unit to us and we'll replace the gear assembly and get it working again free of charge.  You would only be responsible for shipping under this warranty.

Gears and Motors are sold together.  Qty 1 will fix 1 mirror, buy 2 if you want to fix both sides.   Fits Both Passenger and Drivers Side Power Folding Mirrors.  You can also select the complete drive unit to same time and labor.

  1. High Quality Product and Reasonable Price. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Aug 2020

    My 2015 RAM 1500 Sport R/H mirror suffered the same fate as many others and, like many others have found, the dealership wanted a small fortune for a replacement mirror assembly. Since this is caused by an inadequate plastic gear, I did not want to buy another expensive new mirror that would not last and I did not want to go to a wrecking yard for a mirror since it would probably be just like mine in a short time - not working.

    This replacement gear and motor set is much better then the original parts and they fit perfectly. It also operates faster than the original. If you have the tools and for a couple hours of your time, you can save a few hundred dollars and have a better mirror gearbox when you are done. My savings was approximately $750 for the right side alone. My left mirror has not failed yet but it will and I plan to replace the gear and motor in it before it fails.

    GruvenParts.com is very helpful. We exchanged several emails working out the details of getting this done without breaking anything else.

    5 star parts from a 5 star vendor.


  2. Great parts mirrors now work 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Apr 2020

    I followed the chevy video to repair my mirrors on my 2013 Ram Sport. Both mirrors had fractured gears when I opened up the motor housings . The motor housing in the chevy video looks exactly like the ones in my ram mirrors and is assembled in the same manner. The only problem I had on both mirrors was a binding after I snugged down the top of the housing to the base. Both assemblies worked great when tested before snugging the sections together. On the passenger mirror I found that simply backing off the 3 screws that hold the housing together freed it up. The driver mirror binding was caused by the plastic hat that sits above the motor on the housing. I found that when the top was assembled to the bottom and crimped the little white half circle on the inside of the hat placed there to lock in the motor pressed the motor to far down not allowing it to turn against the worm gear. To fix this I removed the white weather seal on the inside base of the hat and relocated it to the outside sealing it to the outside with silicone. This freed up enough space to take the pressure off the motor and allow it to turn freely. One other thing I found about the ram mirrors is that there is a screw on the bottom of the mirror that helps to hold the rear plastic shell to the mirror assembly, that hole can be reached by pushing the mirror in towards the window and looking underneath it takes the same torx head that all the other screws in the assembly use. These are great repair parts , the quality of the product is superb and with a little time and effort I was able to reinstate a feature that my truck had been missing for about 6 months. Almost forgot to see how to remove the Ram mirror glass there are several good you tube videos.


  3. Nice product - no directions? 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Dec 2019

    Nice quality parts but I can’t find anything close to install directions or tutorials. Please help ! Maybe I am not looking in the right place.

    -- response --

    We are working on the DIY for Dodge trucks. Once you get to the drive unit you can follow along the GM instructions, but getting the actual drive unit out is going to be different.

    If you or anyone wants to help make a video or PDF tutorial, we will give you free parts. Just email paul@gruvenparts.com

    Thanks,
