Problem solved. a local car repair shop had an old one, we bought it, sawed the back off, got the mirror and back plate out and put it in ours. was easy and cheap.

1999 Ford Falcon - How to fix/replace the mirror glass and backing plate of the driver side mirror unit?


Use a heat gun or hair dryer to heat up the glass. This will soften the glue which holds the mirror onto actuator. Gently pry the mirror off. the actuator can then be unscrewed and removed.

Need to get a "backing


I need the same thing for a 2004 Explorer Sportrac. I can't find the "backing plate" either. Only the glass. No junkyard will sell me only the plate and glass. I did find a complete mirror assembly (housing, gasket, glass) for $37.89. This includes shipping. I got it from partsgeek.com. It just arrived today and looks to be perfect. I have not installed it yet. Hope this helps you out.

Replacing a rear view mirror


You have to CAREFULLY ( probably wise to wear safety goggles ) and with a flat blade screwdriver, pry out ALL the broken mirror glass wearing gloves. Now with the 2 adhesive strips, align mirror glass and adhere to base. Hope this helps

Need to replace the passenger side mirror,glass only. does anybody know if the plastic backing plate the mirror is attached to pops out of the holder? If it does, it would make it easier to fit the new...


Just replaced the mirror glass myself. Don't have all the answers but can tell you this much.

The passenger side mirror on my 2004 Odyssey was hit by a projectile which caromed off the upper door frame. Left standing was a functional mirror base (motor driven part which has four, short, horizontally mounted rods) still attached to the mirror shroud and a separate assembly of the mirror glass and plastic mount.

I purchased the mirror glass alone online from a Honda dealer, removed the old mirror glass from the mount, and mounted the new mirror to the mount. To do this, look at the tabs which hold the mirror to the mount, and slide the mirror across the mount in the obvious direction. It will take some force. I had the benefit of having the mount/mirror glass blown out of the mirror shroud so it wasn't too difficult. If the broken mirror is still mounted to the mount and inside the shroud, push the bottom of the mirror inward so the top edge of the mirror can clear the top of the shroud. Then pull up on the mirror glass to slide it off the mount. This will take some force but fortunately, the mirror glass is already broken so you don't have to be gentle. Wear gloves or protect you hands while doing this.

Reverse the process for install the new mirror glass.

Now for my key tip. I had to remount the plastic mount/mirror glass assembly onto the motorized mirror base. I could see that it snapped in, with proper alignment, by pushing straight in. I applied quite a bit of force and simply could not get it to snap in place. My solution, was to put the assembly in a 200F oven for 15 minutes to heat the plastic to make it more flexible. Using paper towels to handle to avoid burns, I aligned the closures with the four, small, horizontally mounted rods, and with a moderate amount of force, the assembly snapped into place.

Hope this makes sense. I believe most people will only have broken mirror glass and not have the plastic mount with mirror glass come off the motorized base as I did.

Side mirror inside glass hanging ford explorer


it depends on whats 'hanging', if JUST the mirror glass has come off it's plastic backing plate, then yes you can silicone it back into place. If the mirror glass AND the plastic backing plate are hanging, you can try to 'snap' the backing plate back into the mirror head but most likely something inside is broken and the mirror head will have to be replaced. for a better idea on reinstalling or replacing a mirror see: www.burcinc.com and for aftermarket replacement mirror heads see: www.directauto.com
hope this helps.

Changing Door Mirror Glass XJ6(X300)


Hi

You need to put on a pair of gloves, and safety glasses. (Safety First !)
Prise off the broken mirror from the plastic base that it is stuck too.
Give the plastic a clean with nail polish remover or similar.
Peel off the backing on new mirror glass, and carefully stick it on.

Good Luck !

How do i remove and replace the driver's side mirror?


If the metal pivot arm is not broken you can just replace the glass and plastic housing. To remove the glass you tilt the glass down towards the floor and use a wide plastic or wood bladed object to prise from behind, the glass should pop off from its clips. Remember to catch it if its not damaged. To remove the housing once the glass is out you need to look underneath the mirror unit, there you will find a small plastic bung, gently prise it out and then use a long small flat bladed screwdriver straight up inside the hole and lever towards the front of the car whilst lifting straight up on the plastic housing, this should then lift off. To replace just slot the new housing on and click into place then fit the glass back, remember to connect the wires first if it is a heated glass.
If the metal pivot arm is broken then you will find the remaining screws behind the plastic trim inside the vehicle.
