Tighten side mirror


If the mirror housing is loose and nothing has hit it and broken the mounting to the door frame, yes. If it is the glass part that is loose and it is a electric or manual mirror, something has damaged it behind the glass replacing it will fix problem.

My wife hit a limb and broke the passenger side mirror so that it is hanging loosely and will not operate properly. How do I fix it?


check the mounting bracket if its broken you'll have to replace that , also, check the mount on the door itself, they get bent and with a little TLC can usually be bent back in place,, remove the inside trim piece to the mirror mount inside the door , from there you can see the mounting bolts that hold the mirror in place, if the actual plastic section of the mirror got broke, there is no real fix for that , I suggest getting a replacement at a local junk yard,

I hit a construction cone and it smashed the plastic off of my side mirror. The glass is popped out, but no wires are out and broken. how much to get it fixed?


You can get the glass seperatley. It should come with the wires on the back that you plug into the mount. If your mirror "self dims" then its going to be around $100, if it does not (meaning it doesnt automatically dim when a bright light hits it) you should be looking at around $30.

A local auto glass shop should be able to cut a piece of mirror for you, and may help install it.

Rearview mirror fell off windshield! Not broken...


the mirror should simply slide over the metal mount (button) that is glued to the window.

loosen the set screw on the mirror mount...

hold the rear view mirror mount on the glass just above the metal mount (wide end of plastic opening facing down)

slide it into place...
secure it by tightening down set screw you loosened earlier.

Need to replace the passenger side mirror,glass only. does anybody know if the plastic backing plate the mirror is attached to pops out of the holder? If it does, it would make it easier to fit the new...


Just replaced the mirror glass myself. Don't have all the answers but can tell you this much.

The passenger side mirror on my 2004 Odyssey was hit by a projectile which caromed off the upper door frame. Left standing was a functional mirror base (motor driven part which has four, short, horizontally mounted rods) still attached to the mirror shroud and a separate assembly of the mirror glass and plastic mount.

I purchased the mirror glass alone online from a Honda dealer, removed the old mirror glass from the mount, and mounted the new mirror to the mount. To do this, look at the tabs which hold the mirror to the mount, and slide the mirror across the mount in the obvious direction. It will take some force. I had the benefit of having the mount/mirror glass blown out of the mirror shroud so it wasn't too difficult. If the broken mirror is still mounted to the mount and inside the shroud, push the bottom of the mirror inward so the top edge of the mirror can clear the top of the shroud. Then pull up on the mirror glass to slide it off the mount. This will take some force but fortunately, the mirror glass is already broken so you don't have to be gentle. Wear gloves or protect you hands while doing this.

Reverse the process for install the new mirror glass.

Now for my key tip. I had to remount the plastic mount/mirror glass assembly onto the motorized mirror base. I could see that it snapped in, with proper alignment, by pushing straight in. I applied quite a bit of force and simply could not get it to snap in place. My solution, was to put the assembly in a 200F oven for 15 minutes to heat the plastic to make it more flexible. Using paper towels to handle to avoid burns, I aligned the closures with the four, small, horizontally mounted rods, and with a moderate amount of force, the assembly snapped into place.

Hope this makes sense. I believe most people will only have broken mirror glass and not have the plastic mount with mirror glass come off the motorized base as I did.
