Rushing around to make it to work this morning I clipped the side mirror while backing out of the garage:oops:. I broke the plastic on both the mirror part and the car part. Right now it is hanging by the wire. I am not sure that duct tape will fix this.
Is this something I can fix? What parts will I need?
and who wants to come down and fix it for me? :rolleyes:
What temp repair should I do to get by?

HA! My wife did that to her old civic a while back. :razz:

We needed the entire mirror housing and got it painted (lucky, E's don't need this extra step).

Once you pull the interior trim it is a simple repair.

I nominate Twi as your mechanic. Not only is he handy, he's entertaining in a 20 flaming car pile-up kinda way.:razz:

No really it's so easy a blind caveman with 42 chromosomes could do it.

I don't think there is any difference in them. What price are they online (majestic and the like) ?

edit never mind, $89.00 each (left/right) at Majestic.


edit II - make mental note, make sure to find 'pull through' sites for future camping trips...

Good, I was going to say don't drive around with it hanging by the wire, it would scratch up the door from swinging back and forth.
