Has anyone ever made the mistake of taking their side mirrors apart. :oops: Yesterday I took my side mirrors off to prime them and I took the driver side one apart at the point where the mirror is held on by the spring so the mirror can fold in if it is pushed in. Well the spring came out and now I can't get it to go back in there so right now the mirror is held on by some tape. It looks like CRAP.

Does anyone know how to fix this all help will be greatly appreciated. :banghead: :help:

Yes I did that and it took some time anfd frustration to get the spring threaded back through. I forget how but it involved some busting apart and doing it under tension. I don't have the Escort anymore so I can't go look. You can pop the part that holds the glass without damaging any parts but it might break the glass. I was replacing the glass. I didn't need to remove the mirror so I dunno why I did. I guess I was gonna replace the whole mirror :? . Once I got it all back on I just glued a new piece of glass on there. It was just a rectangular universal thing not the right shape and all that :( .
