Default Exterior mirror repair HOW TO! (in case your's is flopping)

I had a clip problem in my driver's side exterior mirror. The mirror was flopping in the breeze. I decided to try my hand at fixing it. I was able to get it working and put together a HOW TO so that you can fix your own mirror rather than buying a new one. There is hope!

If you would rather not do this yourself, you can remove the mirror and mail it to Ohio for repair. Info here:
