Had someone drive into my wing mirror yesterday. Despite it being folded in, the glass had completely shattered. A quick google suggests sticking a new mirror in place but there is no mirror to stick it onto! Any suggestions of what I should do? Its probably an easy fix but not sure if I can get away with just buying new glass or if I need a new base too? Any help would be much appreciated!

Are your mirrors heated? If so, you'll probably need the base as well due to the heater element between base and glass. Not had to do it for my ceed but it was easier to replace the mirror/element/base as one. It just pulled off with two spade connectors for the element.
If yours isn't heated, strip any remaining glass off the plastic base and stick a new mirror panel to that?
