    WTF? Drivers side rear view mirror falling off

    Damn rear view mirror housing on the door detached on the top side. What the hell holds it on? I took the inner fairing piece off to see what holds it on and I can see anything that holds it tight to the car door.

    Any clues?

    Nevermind, the inner mount bracket broke on the aft mount area. Damn.

    Well, I was able to fix it by drilling a pilot hole in the inner metal plate on the interior side and holding the dog ear piece of broken bracket with a screw driver.

    Once I was able to do that, I guided the drill bit through the broken bracket piece and then used a self tapping metal screw to suck in the mirror.

    Saved myself $50 by doing a combat field repair and thank god I have 20 years of aircraft maintenance under my belt.

    I tried to take pics but, they just didn't turn out because of the damn glare from outside the garage.

    Works now and didn't cost me a penny. Just had to use my head and think about it for a bit. I freaked out though......lol.

    Let me know if you ever experience this and I can help you fix it.
