Patch it if you can, If not try to find one on Ebay It is easy to change the hard part might be getting the door panel off if it needs to come off.

Clean both the bases and use silicone to stick the glass to the base and tape it for few hours and you will be fine.

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,

Need installation instructions for replacing drivers side mirror 2001 PT Cruiser - hit and run left both car mirrors in the street. Thanks, Patricia


There's three nuts on the inside of the door near he top (backside of the mirror). You may have to pull the door panel to access the nuts and wiring connector.

Broken driver side view mirror-2005 camry


Heated mirrors usually have a symbol on them -- a small diagram showing squigley heat lines.

If you don't see this, it's probably not heated. But when you take the mirror off, if it's heated it'll have wires connected to the back.

Yes, you can replace a heated mirror with non-heated -- just leave the wires tucked out of the way when you install the new mirror.

Driver side mirror


On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. You can then disconnect the cable running form the mirror to the control. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door
