Darren assumiong that your car is an E30, if you look at the underside of the mirror casing you will see a oblong hole, just above this hole is a white toothed clip that moves from left to right to lock the mirror in place, a small flat screwdiver does the job nicely.

That's OK then, glad to here you've fixed it.

If the wires had broken I've got a smashed mirror (standard E36 electric one) that you could have had to butcher for bits since you are in York.

Just had to replace mine with a s/h one from Quarry as some burk demolished mine with theirs (resulting in smashed window as well).

Sounds like yours is a different one though being an M3.

Thanks for the offer Rhys,but luckily there was no actual damage,it was just a case of putting the wires back in
