I live in an apartment complex and I came out to my car this morning to see that my driver side mirror has popped off where it would swivel. Is there a way that it can "pop" back on? I don't know if there is some clip that may have broken off that I didn't see. Everywhere I look I just see posts or videos about the glass coming off, or replacing the entire side mirror. I will try and upload pictures later as I am at work right now. Just wondering if this has happened to someone else and if its an easy fix, or will I have to buy a whole new mirror assembly.

Thanks,
Michael


I tried to add just the images but they didn't show up so here is a link to some photos. Someone mentioned a new base, would I just need the piece that holds the mirror to the car?

My glass popped off one day, I just used 3M double sided adhesive as a fix to hold it on till I felt like buying a replacement. Downsides are it vibrates a little more then the other mirror thats held on properly, but its held for about two years now!

The problem isn't the glass, its the whole mirror where it connects to the base. I'll update the thread in a few hours with pictures when I can get some.

Happened to one of my cars a few years ago, crappy metal that holds two halves together cracked. I managed to fix mine with parts from another mirror. What year and color is your car? I may have a replacement for you.
