Question about 2002 Nissan Altima
If only the glass is affected, it can be replaced by slipping a new mirror element into place and locking it. Some mirrors press in, others are locked with a screwdriver turning a little gear through a slot under the mirror. If the mirror plastic body is broken, you can also replace that with a used assembly from Ebay or a junkyard. Replacement requires removal of the door panel, which is more difficult than replacing the mirror. Be sure you have re-connected all the wiring harnesses and checked the mirror operation if it is electrically adjusted before replacing the door panel. Replacement assemblies range from $20-$70 on Ebay. Glass only is much less.
