SOURCE: mirror popped loose on my 2004 Sienna

if you push the glass gently to either the left or right you should be able to see a couple of screws that hold all the mirror working parts in place.
As all these parts are made from plastic it is possible that a plastic part has broken and allowed the mirror to come out
Hope this has helped

SOURCE: mt drivers side wing mirror glass has popped out,

If the glass broke when it fell out any windshield repair shop can make and install a new mirror. If it didn't break go to the hardware store and get a squeeze tube of bathtub silicone sealer and a roll of black electrical tape if you don't have any. Run a bead of silicone around the edge of the mirror back and a few dots in the center. Stay in about a 1/2 inch so it wont bleed out when you press it on. Using a couple of blocks of wood or plastic or anything non-metallic on the mirror face, make 2 or 3 wraps around the mirror and mirror bracket with the black tape. Stretch the tape as you wrap to put some tension on it but not real tight, just snug. Do this on both ends of the mirror and leave it for a day to let the silicon set up and cure. Then remove the tape and shims and you shouldn't have any more problems with that mirror. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Need to replace the passenger side mirror,glass

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.

I have hyundai tucson 2005. My wife broke passenger side mirror. Please provide instructions on how to replace the mirror? thanks,


first obtain a replacement .the cover with tape to prevent shattering the glass then carefully prise of the glass with a screwdriver refitting should be just a case of cleaning any glass away and removing adhesive tape and refitting the glass the heating element is part of the housing and the heat should just transfer through the glass ..not a hard job ..just tricky and time consuming ..if the housing has been damaged .then its a bit more difficult ..first obtain a replacement and then remove the door card then the fixings should be visible remove them and the mirror housing should come loose remove any wiring from the loom then fix the new unit connect any wiring then refit the fixing screws and then replace the door card ..again not the most technical but of work but time taken will show in the end result ..dont loose you temper as it is a bit fiddly ..if in doubt get halford to do it for you or any other similar garage

How can I replace broken mirror glass volvo S40 2002?


You can replace it a couple of ways, my wife broke my side mirror with a paint ball gun, so I just cut a piece of mirror and glued it in the holder. Worked great for years, Till I found a new mirror, and took the real glass out and snapped it in the holder. But you can remove the holder by taking off the plastic cover inside the car behind the mirror, unbolt the holder and hang on to it, it is heavy. You might have to pull the door panel to get the wire disconnected. Then you can either replace it or work on it easily. Hope this helps.
