Oncoming log truck threw something at my car. It hit the driver's side mirror.:mad:
Does anyone know how to pull apart the mirror stem cover?
Do I need take the whole mirror off? And do I need buy a new mirror assembly or ca I get just the black plastic panel???

Fairly sure you’re going to end up buying the whole mirror minus the glass and the cowl. That presents its own problems as swapping them without breaking them will be a challenge. I’ll attach the relevant pdf’s for you to ponder but neat repair with flex black plastic might be order of the day.

Tanks for the files.

I found out that the broken panel is a removable separate part.
I found most of the plastic fragments inside the stem (or what ever that part is in English).

I'm going to super glue it as good as I can and then apply some filler.
After sanding it smooth i'll cover it in matte black vinyl wrap.
Removing that part left a big opening allowing all the mud and grime to get inside the door so i have to make quick fix.

Have to ask next week the stealership if they sell that part separately.

You might be lucky but you've got nothing to lose in attempting to repair it.

The corner that had the hole lost a fastening hook. So it doesn't fit 100 %.
Quite close though.

Local Mazda dealer parts guy confirmed that you can't get that little piece of plastic separately.
You would need to buy mirror frame assembly for 363 €. That doesn't include mirror glass and cowl.
