Right side mirror replace -HELP!
Car: 2008 Honda Accord EX
Affected: Right side view mirror
Needed: Assembly diagram
So a couple of weeks ago I smashed my right sideview mirror - Dont bother asking how - I feel stupid as it is!
In any case, the housing, and the motorized funtion still worked, it was just that the mirror was shattered.
I continued to drive with it as is partly becuase the dealer wanted to charge me $400 for the replacement of the mirror, or and arm and a leg for the whole housing.
I recently booked a road test for the completion of my graduated licence, and I need to have the mirror fixed before I got on the road test.
What I did was as a quick fix I went to Canadian tire and got a cutable reflective thing thats used as a temporary solution and tried to stick it on.
So I pulled off the shattered glass, it still maintained it shape, I traced out the glass, and began to cut. I guess my cutting was not as acurate as I thought because the mirror still didnt fit. So there was a screw that holding the mirror plate in place, so I unscrewed it and this white plastic knob fell out (I have NO idea from where).
So I have a plastic plate, the faux mirror stick on, a screw with a washer on the end, a spring and this little white knob.
I know have to put it all back together but dont know where to put the knob. without the knob the plate does not stay in place, with the knob (in what I think is the right place, the spring doesnt fit behind the screw (where it was when I was taking it out.)
If anybody has a diagram of the mirror housing and where each part is to go it would help ALOT!
Thank you in advance!!
