Well, the other day, I tripped back and fell against my side mirror. I broke two of the three posts. There are some mirrors on ebay, but I was wondering how you would connect it back to the car. Are the posts on the mirror or connected to the car.
Thanks
Alex

Mirrors have posts on them. You have to insert the whole thing into the door and use nuts to tighten them.

(I think) They are talking about the 3-screws that hold the mirror onto the car.

I've done the same thing.. if you still have all of the plastic, take off your tweeter sail and unbolt the 3 nuts taht hold the mirror together. you can put it back together with an expoy called PC7

That would make sense.

Well I came out one day to find my passenger side mirror hanging from the car, some little punk I guess had a fight with it.

Anyway, the 3 posts for the posts that hold the mirror on the car cracked off, and since I never had the $$$ to go buy a new mirror and have it painted, I did the ghetto repair.

First I duct taped the mirror in place, then I got a long 1/8 drill bit and drilled 3 holes straight out through the mirror from the inside where the factory nuts go. Then I got 3 - 1.5" screws and 3 washers and screwed themirror back on. Its ghetto and you could see the screws on the outside, but after I trimmed them for length with a dremmel and used a little touch up paint on the ends, you can barely see the repair.

my mirror is half broken I'm sure from the last owner running into the garage door at some point while they owned it. I found it for like 25 on a website out there but I don't know cause I've never heard of the site lol. I can get it for anyone I'm sure they have 99+ too in there.
