Many auto parts stores have a trimmable "mirror" pane that you can buy,cut to size / shape, and install. It already has adhesive and I recommend you clean your existing mirror with rubbing alcohol before installing this replacement. It is not as clear as a glass mirror but it will work well enough for you to see through it - it's also less than $20.00 u.s.d. so you'll save a nice bit of cash too!!!
Hope this helps and please rate my solution!!

I was reversing into my driveway and knocked my side drivers mirror it's attached I can see the wires, but I had to duct tape it, also I can't get in my drivers side door the key won't turn it just sits...

question #1: sounds like you may have to disassemble the side-view mirror cover assembly. the access point is on the inside of the door at the front corner of your window. try carefully prying the plastic interior piece (it looks triangular in shape) off of the door. this will give you access to the 10mm nuts that hold on your mirror cover. once there you can see if there is damage to the support bracket to see if its been cracked. if it has cracked or completely broken you might try drilling some holes through the fins of plastic on the bracket and using tie wire or something equivalent and stitch the holes together for strength. that's what I did 18 mos ago and its still holding.

We have a 2004 RX 330 Lexus with just 24,000 miles and we are the origional owners. Our dashboared has cracks all over it. We have used only Lexus products on our car.We do not understand how this could...

don't park it in direct sunlight. the sunlight does not know how much the car cost and will cause the dash to dry crack and split on a 400 dollar falcon too.

you have to go whole hog and spend over 100,000 if you want a non cracking dashboard.
