    Anything is fixable just depends on how much you are prepared to spend.
    The photo isn’t really that good as to show what and where it is.
    So post a couple more photos to give us a better idea of what is broken

    Would've thought it was pretty obvious to you guys what it was.:neutral:

    It's the right-hand mirror stem snapped off the base. :oops:

    That’s what I thought it was but a picture slightly further out would have been better imv.

    Plastic to plastic can be eaisily glued and would be just as strong, with the right glue. Might look a little bodged so it depends on how much you want it to look "right".

    Araldite & tape while it sets for 24 hrs. Not a big deal at all!

    Agree with the above a good epoxy resin glue and tape it for 24 hrs
    best removed from bike to get a good repair.

    If you’re taking the mirror off, Gorilla glue is good stuff.

    @Flashp Well said on the PU! I swear by it as I use it on everyday repairs. Didn’t know it could be activated though?

    In the past I've seen an activator available, it gets painted on one half and adhesive goes on the other. Thin clear liquid as I recall. It still works well without though.

    Many years ago when the second series Vauxhall’s cavalier came out we were always fixing rust on the rear tailgates and the then ‘new idea’ bonded screen always had to come out. At the time we did always black etch prime the frame first.
