Side view mirrors on a car are delicate, and it doesn’t take much to damage one. Professional auto repair shops might charge an arm and a leg to fix a broken mirror, but luckily ,it isn’t hard to repair a car mirror on your own. With the proper tools, you can replace the glass in a few minutes and be on your way, and for much cheaper than you would have paid at the dealership.
5 If your mirror has a heating element behind the glass, use a razor to peel it away from the broken mirror before applying heat to the adhesive with the hairdryer. When you put the new mirror on, simply use silicone adhesive and reattach the element to the back of the mirror.
Clean the frame and the new mirror with water. Wipe them down and allow them to dry briefly before applying the adhesive.
