Is it an aero mirror with no arms?
Or a trailer tow mirror with arms?
The glass is repalceable. It is mounted on a center post with a ball on it. The mirror has a socket on the back center.
It also has 2 jack srews (plastic) that go into the tiny motors that move the mirror. You can push and pull on the glass and they will retchet, it won't hurt them.

You have to pop the mirror off the ball.

It helps to heat the socket with a hair dryer to put the new one on.

I have a 2009 dodge nitro. My mirror was knocked off is there a way to replace just the mirror or do I have to replace the whole unit? Thank you for your time.

Most likely you will have to replace the whole unit.
if just the glass is broken then you can get a universal mirror glass and stick it on previous glass.
i hope that helps

How to replace passenger side mirror. Glass is

You can usually just replace the mirror, any commercial auto-glass store has the glass you need. sometimes it is necessary to replace the mirror and its backing (a plastic frame which snaps into the adjustable motor) you don't need to replace the whole mirror unless the housing is broken.

Please rate this answer. Thank you.

How do i replace the passenger side mirror?

Usually you need to take the door panel off to get access to the nuts that hold the mirror on. Once you get the panel off they are right there behind the mirror. You may not have to take the panel completely off, but it is usually easier to take off all the way. There are usually 3 nuts that hold it on. The wires harness will unplug, if you have heated mirrors or a blinker in the mirror.
Hope that 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).

Eddie Bauer drivers side directional signal in mirror not working

you can call around to a good salvage yard to see if they would take the mirrors off the doors or check with a dealer and see how much it would cost to have just the leds repair or replace in your mirrors also here is a place that sells truck & van parts and the website is and the toll free # is 866-272-8407 and maybe they can help you also try a place that sell after market parts as well.
