I am in an enraged state, just went out to buy something and on the way home, get in the car, reverse, f**k well knock out the left side mirror on a power poll... was too busy making sure i didnt hit the car behind me (which was a ef falcon) when smash... i flipped the s**t.

Anyway luckily the mirror is in one peace, it fell out but and the bit it rests in is cracked but still contact.. I am thinking super glue job..... I will have to have a look in it in proper daylight as i just did it (11pm) and I am going to leave it till tomorrow... But i Am so p****d off....

I wonder how I will put the mirror back in place so it can still be re-angled etc...

f**k I WONT BE ABLE TO SLEEP IM SO ANGRY

Its my left hand side too which i use ALL THE TIME F009we*t5()$ewu85 ROIPEHTk!!!!

Duck tape :lol:

Seriously though, I'm thinking a screw from the base plate, to the the mirror part itself might be the go, as I have a similiair but sort of worse problem, being my miror silasticed on with about half a tube, and hang out as it is, f**k I guess this is what sends people to buying new cars, and the other day my mate was looking at it going on how i should fix it already, somehow we broke it further.

Seriously though, there's know point in stressing over it, hell nobody else caused it slight f**k up, but s**t happens, but take a lesson from this, take it super careful when coming out, I've knocked my mirrors a couple times reversing out tight gate. up our dirt drriveway, but if your paying enough attention they do have a bit of give before they break.

Yeah thats the thing, didnt even see it coming... Anyhow it turns out i found the perfect match, the same colour at a wreckers, picking it up 2moz for $20... Just needs a mirror which I have, as mine just dropped out, didnt smash :)

Problem solved :)

Still need a new seatbealt though :(

Might just buy an aftermarket one lol

haha, lucky bugger, last time I had to replace mine thanks to a truck taking a slip lane to close, it cost 70 for a rough one, just couldn't find one in grey anywhere else.
