Default Driver side mirror replacement 88 ranger

Hi, someone smashed into my drivers side mirror while I was parked on a residential street. It appears that the damaged mirror was not stock.

I bought a stock mirror replacement but after removing the old one, I am seeing that these lil white plastic things are the only way to secure it. I dont have big enough ones for the stock holes for the new stock mirror.

Do you know what these white plastic things are? The look like expanding drywall screws. I dont understand how these would go on w/out the plastic to screw into that expands to fill the holes. Kinda weird that thats all that holds it on.

Cant install it by removing the door paneling as its a hollow door with a big gap and no way for me to get my hand in there to use a bolt.

88 ford ranger xtra cab 4x4

Do tell, thanks!
