The glass mirror is bonded to a plastic carrier (BP) that covers the whole of the rear of the glass. There are barbs and locating lugs moulded into the plastic carrier. This engages with the circular 'adjuster mech' in the mirror housing. The 'adjuster mech' is either electrical (motors) or mechanical (cables), but the mounting is the same. The 2 plastic parts just clip together.

If your plastic carrier (BP) is broken, you can get a whole mirror glass and carrier as an assembly here, on eBay, if your carrier (Backing Plate) is still attached to the 'adjuster mech' and no longer attached to the glass mirror, use some pressure sensitive tape to join them but make sure both surfaces to be bonded are very clean otherwise it won't stick properly.


Mirror Glass complete with backing plate/plastic carrier - without heated mirrors.
