2000 Honda Accord EX with a broken mirror (glass only)
I have a 2000 Honda Accord EX with a broken mirror on the passenger side. I bought a new mirror glass, and I need help installing the new glass into the mirror housing. The back of the mirror has 3 holes to match up with the electric motor. I applied some pressure to the mirror trying to "snap" it into place, but I didn't want to break the $50 mirror. Please advise me on steps to install this mirror.

I have some good news! I had the same problem with a '90 Honda, and found I could go to e-bay and type in door glass and found a stick-on glass that can be mounted on your broken glass! I bought it and it works!

The rods are (secured to the backing and these adjust the pitch of the mirror). If these rods become separated, then it may be tricky to adjust the mirror. Then again, adjust it once and it should stay
