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.

How Do I Put new glass mirror on a 2004 ford territory


Interior or exterior? I have looked up mirror glass for some makes and models. It was just the mirror glass with adhesive backing. You take old glass out of assembly. Remove adhesive backing from new mirror glass and stick it on. I don't know if applicable for your vehicle? Do a web search for mirror glass.
You could probably buy the whole mirror assembly, if you want?

I need to replace the mirror of my 2007 Ford Explorer XLT as it was hit and knowcked off, hanging by the power wires. this is he Passenger side door


You can access the inside mounting bolts by removing the panel just inside of the passenger mirror...the electric plug can be unplugged without any other changes...Your mirror is of course available through your local Ford dealer...you can also try the internet to find a like new replacement mirror and head assembly...just type in 2007 Explorer passenger side mirror...Also, your least costly replacement is available at your local salvage yard...some allow you to browse, and remove yourself...(good practise before scratching yours...some yards will pull the mirror for you...you might even find the exact color...salvage yard mirror heads (electric) go for $25. to $75. Sounds like you have a good start...Hope this helps.

HOW DO I INSTALL PASSENGER SIDE MIRROR ON 2000 LINCOLN TOWNCAR


Do you have the new mirror? Did you get the whole thing or just the glass? You can pop the glass (mirror) out of the holder with a flat bar and some slight pressure, don't break it, It comes out, or you can take the whole thing off and replace the mirror, motor and everything. Behind the mirror, inside the car, is a black plastic triangle, it pops off exposing 3 or 4 bolts, remove the bolts, hang on to the mirror, it is heavy, disconnect the wires going to the motor, replace, should be all set, Hope this helps.

Change mirror turn signal light in ford 2001 lariat side mirror


You will need to remove the glass to get to it.

Muth Co signal mirrors have some good directions for getting the door panel off, and removing the glass, available for download on their site.

I prefer to do this with the mirror head off the truck, but you might feel other wise on this part.

Once you have the glass from the mirror removed you will see where the bulb is inserted from the back ( inside ) of the mirror head.

How to I replace an electric drivers side mirror on a Ford Focus


Go to a breakers yard or ford, you will have to unscrew & pull off the interior cap on the insde to udo the mirror whole unit & pop the glass out of the old unit by pulling carefully, then disconnect the motor & wiring, then re-fit as dismantled.
Hope this helps, If you can't do it yourself then buy the mirror & take it to a decent garage as they are not hard to replace & the dealership will charge twice as much !
Hope this helps !

How to replace just the glass on my side mirror


Go to any glass shop, they'll cut a new mirror and glue it on top of the old one. Much cheaper than replacing the whole unit (hundreds).
