Re: drivers side mirror got knocked off
Cheapest easiest way is to get a replacement mirror at a wrecking/junk/auto recycling yard. the mirror is generally attached by two to three bolts. to gain access there is usually a small panel over the mirror on the inside of the door.. gently pry that off
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Put a sheet metal screw between the mirror and mirror body below the mirror. This will allow the mirror to still break free and swing if you hit something kinda hard, but will keep it from moving freely. There is no other way to tighten it. It's just a case of the spring becoming fatigued.
Remove the small triangle panel in the corner of the window, one clip. then to remove all of the door panel you can pry starting at the bottom and work to the sides. once all push clips are off. (they really sound bad when they come loose, but that is normal.) push the panel up to remove the last two holders behind the door handle. You will have to remove these later with a needle nose pliers and slide them back on the door panel before you reinstall. remove elect from block and remove the Three screws holding the mirror. they are 10MM I think. and the mirror will practicly fall our. Or just hit something with it like my wife does and they come off pritty easy.
On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle,
arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the
panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want
to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to
get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel
and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and
disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door
Try Penetrating Oil Such as (PB Blaster) In the LOCK first . It is Hard for me to Connect the Accident to The Lock not Working It Really Had to have Hit it Hard , Unless The Front Wheel on that side Was Hit This Would Effect the Steering Hence the Ignition. Lock. Try the Penetrating Oil on it Its Obvious you Understand the Connection between Steering Wheel & Ignition Lock If this Fails The Ignition Lock Should Be Replaced. I hope you Have Luck with The Lube Fix As It Is SO Much LESS EXPENSIVE Than Replacing the Lock, Good Luck
You can buy replacement stick on mirrors at most auto stores... different sizes or you actually cut it to the size you want.... cut out a peice of cardboard to make a template till it fits right on the mirror on the car and use that to get the replacement mirror you need or cut the replacement mirror to size.... peel off the paper on the back... then line up the mirror and push firmly starting in the center of the mirror working outward to make sure the sticky side sticks.
