Need Replacement Drivers Side Ext. Mirror # or link

Greetings.
After MUCH trouble getting signed up to this forum, I hope SOMEONE here can help. I have a Diamond White 2012 Acadia, Denali, AWD. The driver's side exterior mirror glass is getting foggy/brown with what look like spider cracks on the reflective surface. It's almost opaque now and useless. I am not able to source a replacement anywhere I can find. Well, that's almost true. There are lots of replacements, just not an exact match. Mine has the round Blind-Spot mirror, auto-dimming, heated, power-folding with turn signal. I can find replacements without the blind-spot mirror, or ones with the mirror, just not power folding or lacking another feature. Long story short, I want an exact replacement and I can't find it. The Build Sheet code is DNP if that helps.
I've searched the internet and this forum and there's a few threads. All of them basically say "go to [big box auto parts store] and get a stick on mirror. I am NOT doing that. The right side has the embedded mirror, I want it on the left too. Otherwise it just looks tacky. Can someone please help me source it? I can't find an OEM part number on-line that is an exact match, and I can't find an aftermarket replacement either. HELP! PLEASE!

Thanks,
Farmall Dude

just as shown on that diagram, you dont have to replace the entire assembly.
Its possible to just replace the glass.


There is a thread that shows pics of the glass.
you can get an idea how to swap it out.

speleos,
Thanks for the link. Unfortunately, that does not help because they don't have the spotter mirror, or are not power folding. This is exactly the problem I'm having. I need one with ALL the options.

I'm wondering now if power folding even plays into replacing JUST the glass. I haven't torn it apart, but I can't really see how it would. The link to the pictures rbarrios posted make it look like it's probably not an issue. But, it's clearly, specifically called out, so I'm not willing to risk buying one on chance. Maybe someone out there knows that answer?

rbarrios,
I appreciate the link too. I didn't plan on replacing the whole assembly, just the glass. I do appreciate the pictures, that helps when (if) the time comes for me to replace it. I've replaced mirror glass before, but not on an Acadia and not with so many options.

The third diagram is specifically for the power folding mirror. I'm wondering if your blind-spot mirror is a factory installation. Usually, GM factory blind-spot mirrors are not round. They look similar to these: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Side-Mirror....c100005.m1851

Hi Speleos,
From the GMPartsDirect Description: With power folding. With light sensitive & turn signal lamp. --- Doesn't include heated or blind spot mirror apparently.
Yes it is definitely factory install. Build sheet shows it (DNP- Dual Outside Mirrors, Power Folding/Adjustable, Heated, Turn signal, Auto dimming & DTM - Outside Mirrors, Blind Zone Integral Spotter). The blind spot mirror looks like it's part of the glass/mirror itself. Not an add-on look. I'll post a photo in a day or two (supposed to have a winter storm this evening). The ebay mirrors are newer models I believe. 2012 was the last year for the round ones, or so I've read.
I do appreciate your investigation and interest!

Thx!

in 2009/2010/2011 they were as shown below.
I believe it was 2012- when they went to round mirrors.

@farmall.dude, I looked around the 'net and found that DNP and DTM are RPO codes used on several GM models. DNP is the mirror assembly - DTM is for the glass. I saw a picture of what you're talking about, but it was on a Silverado. Have you tried talking with a local dealer about getting a replacement? There's a good possibility the exact type mirror glass you have might not be available any more. If that's the case, you might consider replacing the DTM glass on both outside mirrors to balance out the car.

Yea, I was hoping to avoid the dealer. They seem to think their OEM parts are WAY more valuable than the exact same part on the 'net. I'm guessing around $100 for just the glass on-line will likely be $200-$250 at the dealer. I may be wrong though... I guess I'll try there next. I appreciate your help.
Thanks.
