I have a 2018 Honda Accord and clipped the left side rear view mirror backing out of my garage. Was able to replace the mirror with no problem but do not know how to replace the housing (if that’s even what it’s called).

The skull keeps coming off because the front part of the mirror housing is snapped. Do I buy a whole new housing set? Seems like this wouldn’t make sense if it’s just one part of the housing that’s broken. Any suggestions of where I can buy this part?

I would look at the diagram on the link below. The cap might have broken clips from keeping it together, you might have to buy a new set if it’s not salvageable.

Okay thank you! I’m hoping it’s not the clips but I think I can get a replacement for the housing that clips in for cheap

I had my driver side mirror replaced recently as well. The mirror and that back cap are separate parts due to the different colors available. Yours looks worse then mine and the whole assembly had to be replaced ($470 for a EX, heated and blind spot but no blinker).

To be fair, the title lends itself to making all kinds of assumptions. I dont know why she felt it was necessary to share that. Something more informative might be "novice looking to fix..."

Agree. I don't see why "female" is relevant here. If you're here asking for help on fixing it yourself, clearly you've already put on your big girl panties and are ready to do it!

For the record though, this guy's always been a problem when it comes to gender. He called me "honey", asked what's for dinner, and when the laundry will be ready before. It was deleted by mods, and this might be deleted by mods too for referencing it. I won't forget that though, it was just so insanely rude.

In hindsight (sorry, i know this doesnt help, but it makes me feel better saying it) replacing the whole thing would've been a good first move, but you're already halfway done so you're committed.

...I dont know why she felt it was necessary to share that...
Honestly, this is a smart tactic. I'd assume the car forum is predominantly male, and either disclosing or pretending to be a woman is a good way to get attention and quick help. However, DA is pretty awesome to almost all members regardless, so it was an unnecessary move. Traditionally, men have posed as women in video games as a predatory/parasitic move to get other players to help for free or go easy.

...asked what's for dinner, and when the laundry will be ready before...
In my house, cooking and laundry my tasks (well, washing and sometimes folding, i also often leave clean clothes to rot in the basket all week), but I suck at general cleaning, so that still falls on her.

You need to remove the mirror cap because as a poster said, the clips inside ..or, where the housing snaps onto the cap, may have broken. Then you'll need to see what the damage is, and perhaps order both of those parts, if it's the cap and the housing.
I'd look to a junkyard, also. Keep in mind you can get the cap painted even if it is a different color.

I have no problem with the gender.

Given your post history, I have a very hard time believing that. But that's not the point of this thread, and I'm not interested in this issue any further.

To get this thread back on track, I'll echo what other posters have said, as it looks like OP's best option would be to get a whole new assembly, since it looks like there is damage on the mirror itself as well as the mirror cap. A junkyard would likely be the cheapest source.
Good luck!

Should be all you need to replace it. As far as parts go, eBay, car-part.com or your local dealer should be able to help you.
