Hi MVN, Seems that the washer is from the securing hollow mount. There should be a nut somewhere inside too. The mirror is electrically operated not hydrolic. The mirror will probably break if you try to remove it from the housing, but as to save it you will have to do so anyway, you may as well try. If you are successful, you can reattach it using double sided mirror tape, but make sure it is a good quality tape. Adjust it to the maximum and insert a flat blade between it and the mounting and try un-clipping it. If it does not break you should be able to replace and lock the housing back in place, but it will be difficult. To replace the mirror you will need to remove the door panel and the small cover on the inside of the door adjacent to the mirror mount. It clips into place and is gently levered off. Inside are three screws holding the assembly in place. Disconnect the electrics inside the door panel and then remove the screws. Fit back the replacement and reassemble. Regards John
Fold mirror in towards car and you will see an inspection hole at the bottom left of the end of the mirror housing. Insert a flat blade screwdriver into the hole and press against a small metal clip. you will feel the clip move and the housing will then slide off allowing you to unclip the glass
If you have electric folding mirrors fold them in, if not fold the mirror back against the spring (not easy as it is quite strong). Looking from the front, to the mirror cover side of the spindle on which the mirror pivots if you pull it forward, you will see the end of the main mirror body which has a groove it it. At the end of the groove there is a springclip which can prised up using a flat bladed screwdriver. It is easiest to place the blade under the clip and twist the clip to release it. Once fully released the cover can then be withdrawn. Refitting is the reverse of the above but if the cover does not automatically clip in place you may have to force it back with the screwdriver.
