I have a 2004 Honda Accord EX 4 cylinder. My car was hit on the driver side door and the driver side rear view mirror broke also. I uploaded pics. Would like to know the cost of repair?

Hi Kamaal....Thank you for supplying the 2 pictures. To do a proper repair, all body side mouldings, belt mouldings, door handle(s), mirror, front bumper cover and LHS headlight should be removed. This is so that the adjacent panels for and aft, can be blended when refinishing. Judging by the pictures, repair time on the front door should be in the area of 6.5 hours labor, as well as replacing the mirror.

That being said, all in all, repair cost would run in the area of $1800, plus the cost of a new mirror. Please remember this is just an estimate, calculated on a $75.00 per hour door rate as it is here.

Hope this helps out....If you have any other questions, please drop me another line....Thanks....Dave.
