Question about 1999 Saab 9-5

Backed out of the garage and my driver's side mirror hit the side and broke off. Do I need to replace the entire mirror which can run over $500 or just the frame? On a 1999 9-5 SE Saab.

You can buy after market mirrors a lot cheaper at a parts store. Or you could go to a auto salvage yard and get one

1999 Pontiac Montana DRIVER SIDE mirror attachment broken.

The most inexpensive cure is to replace it entirely. I've gone to dealers to buy small parts & paid more for the small parts than the entire item costs elsewhere.

I didn't of course call & verify the exact price since I can't see the damage so I'm going on years of replacing mirrors others have broken off & asked me to repair.

You can see the part in it's entirety on eBay at a reasonable price for heated & power, see item #
110440973578 priced at 48.00 incl. S&H.

good luck

Broken driver side mirror

you'll need to 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 can remove the cover adjacent to the mirror and remove the bolts and the mirror will pop right out

How to replace driver side mirror on a 2005 ford focus.

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

My wife backed into the garage and knocked the passenger side mirror off. Does anyone know how I can fix it? It looks like some of the little knobs that latch it broke.

If there is no damage to the door itself the mirror replacement is fairly easy on this model. Remove the inside plastic trim panel,it just snaps on. Disconnect the electrical connector remove the bolt in the center and there will be a screw toward the front of the door,remove it then remove the mirror.
Here is a pic of the bolt and screw.

If it has a painted cover on the outside of the mirror to match the color of the vehicle then that would have to be painted to match unless your old one did not suffer any damage then you could just swap it.It just snaps on also, and it may or may not come with a new mirror so I would ask when ordering it.

Replace right side view mirror.

My mirror got knocked off by a deer running into the side of my car.

I mixed up some five minute epoxy and put it into the male and female joints that connect the mirror to the car. Hold it on tight without movement, for ten minutes and you are done.

Patch it if you can, If not try to find one on Ebay It is easy to change the hard part might be getting the door panel off if it needs to come off.
