Default Broken driver mirror...

So I let a buddy borrow my truck today, and he hit the garage and broke the mirror before he could get out of the driveway. How hard is it to replace just the mirror? Or do you need to replace the whole assembly? How much is it going to cost? Do the mirrors on the 2000's bend to prevent this? Thanks in advance...FML! lol

They are power mirrors, and he said that the mirror shatter, no wires or anything. I have not looked at it cause I am at work. Could I maybe just scrape off the old mirror, clean everything real good, and use an adhesive for the new one?

i wasn't able to find replacement glass for mine when i looked, but i know its out there cuz a buddy did that on his civic. i looked at it and that crap sucked, everything was distorted like you were looking in a funhouse mirror. check out ebay or rockauto.com, i picked up a new power mirror for my truck for right around $30

OK thanks guys....he ordered one from AutoZone for $27...but I have not seen the damage nor the replacement mirror. I am a little OCD in getting things fixed right so, I might end up returning the mirror to autozone when it arrives and buy a better OEM type replacement.

Is the scraping, cleaning, and readhering the new mirror the preffered method? Or is there a better way? What type of adhesive should I use?

I wouldnt even bother replacing just the mirror glass itself. I think most guys on here would just do a whole assembly replacement

OK.....I am looking at the one on the link below. I imagine all I need to do is remove the door inner cover and remove bolts/eletrical connection?
