You dont have to take it apart but check if the piece which holds the mirror glass backing plate to the casing isn't broken. Had my mirror smashed by a luton van. Lucky I had the window open otherwise I think the window would have gone aswell. Although most of my mirror casing hit me in the face:eek: Had to by the whole thing because a small piece of plastic broke:( Total cost was over £100
