Red face 97 Malibu Passenger Side Mirror

My bride unfortunately backed into a trash can and knocked the passenger side mirror almost off (hanging by its wires). There is no glass breakage or other damage. How can I re-secure the mirror? Or do I have to take it to a body shop? Thanks.

You probably broke the plastic housing which supports the mirror. The only option in this case is to order a whole new mirror with housing and replace. Depending on this vehicle, you remove the plastic interior cover and unscrew old mirror, disconnect plug, and replace. On some cars, you have to remove the whole interior door panel and unbolt.

I can't count on both hands how many times my mother did this backing out of the garage. My father was getting a little upset replacing mirrors 2-3 times a year.

Thanks Mark. Yes, my son ripped it off three times and now my wife decides to follow suit. I too am sick to death of having body shops replace that mirror.
