my drive side mirror on my Accord 2000 Ex is broken. there is a small unit under it that mirror will be attached to and that unit will be attached to the housing. I call it middle unit and it is broken too but the housing is ok. I found a black side mirror from a junk yard for $100. I have to remove the mirror and middle unit from it and install them on my existing silver housing to match the colour. but is the mirror detachable? if yes how?

to replace JUST the mirror glass, goto www.burcoinc.com On the left click on 'redi cut'. Under "redi cut" click on 'Installation'. At the right, I believe you mirror type is 'Snap Fit/ Drop Fit'.
This shows HOW to replace the mirror, to GET the mirror you will have to check with your local glass shop or dealership. (I don't think Burco will sell to you directly) Just make sure it is AUTO mirror, See FMVSS-111 on Burco's web site.
If you need to replace the entire mirror head assembly...it is held on with 3 bolts located under the door panel. HTH
That dependso on if the housing itself is broken then yes. If the face plate that is attached to the mirror itself is flapping around then maybe. If it is just the mirror, just go to your neighborhood auto glass shop and but a "Ready-Cut" mirror for a small amount of money. they come already cut to fit perfectly. As for removing the old glass, take a very small flat screw driver and pry the glass away from the face plate. Once completely cleaned out use the adhesive from the ready cut and place them on the face plate. Next press the new mirror onto the flace pate, being careful not to press to hard or it will snap it in half.
You have to CAREFULLY ( probably wise to wear safety goggles ) and with a flat blade screwdriver, pry out ALL the broken mirror glass wearing gloves. Now with the 2 adhesive strips, align mirror glass and adhere to base. Hope this helps
you can buy the whole mirror after market for about 70.00 dollars three bolts changes the mirror assembly its a pain to do it the other way i have changed alot of them if you can just get the mirror glass double stick the new to the broken one
If the metal pivot arm is not broken you can just replace the glass and plastic housing. To remove the glass you tilt the glass down towards the floor and use a wide plastic or wood bladed object to prise from behind, the glass should pop off from its clips. Remember to catch it if its not damaged. To remove the housing once the glass is out you need to look underneath the mirror unit, there you will find a small plastic bung, gently prise it out and then use a long small flat bladed screwdriver straight up inside the hole and lever towards the front of the car whilst lifting straight up on the plastic housing, this should then lift off. To replace just slot the new housing on and click into place then fit the glass back, remember to connect the wires first if it is a heated glass.
If the metal pivot arm is broken then you will find the remaining screws behind the plastic trim inside the vehicle.
go to a junk yard as it'll be a lot cheaper there... Yes, technically you can just replace the backing and mirror. The backing is connected to the housing via two rods and some clips. 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
