Hello all, I looking for a little advice. I have a 2005 9-3 Arc with heated mirrors. Recently, I accidentally bumped (and not very hard) the back of my passenger side mirror. Next thing I knew, the mirror glass was on the garage floor in pieces. When I looked at the mirror housing to see what had happened, it almost looks like the glass just de-laminated. There appears to be a black thick paper/thin cardboard lining still glued to the plastic backer piece. On the paper liner the words "Objects in mirror are closer than they appear" are still visible. So here are my questions:
- Can I replace just the glass or do I have to replace the glass with the plastic backer piece?
- If replace the glass only, should I peel the paper with the text off before I glue the glass on or should I just glue the mirror glass to the existing paper?
- How does the heater affect the mirror assembling? Do I need to buy special glass or use special adhesive since the mirror is heated?
