    say you parked on the road while you went in the shop and some idiot must have done it on purpose or hit your car with theirs then driven off?

    You clip it back in. I did exactly the same thing but got my mate's dad who was a mechanic to just pop it back in. Someone then leaned on it a week later and popped it out again, this time I knew how to fix it. Is it electronic or manual? That method may only work for manual.

    *sigh*...cant do either of those.

    think i may just dump the car in a ditch...when my rents get back like 'where did the car go?'...i'll say, 'what car?!'.

    check your/your folks' insurance. If they're fully comprehensive then it usually comes with glass replacement service where for £50 they'll replace any glass on your vehicle.

    edit- long day. Windshield mirror then. Internal one or one of the wing mirrors?

    If its a wing mirror- go to halfords and get replacement glass for it, sticks over the broken stuff and works okish as a repair.

    Are you insured to drive that car? ^o) To me, you sound like a stupid boy/girl racer who clearly has as much spatial awareness as a goldfish, who think's they can drive at 50mph round corners with the music pounding out.

    And thus demolishing their no claims bonus. I'm sure they'll be VERY happy.

    lol i am a girl racer yes...but i'm not stupid actually i was not driving round a corner at the time...and i was not going at 50mph either actually i was just horizontally challenged by lack of space between the walls on either side of me.

    and i've already crashed her car so no 'no claims bonus' to worry bout
