Default Another mirror problem now!

While backing out of the garage I caught that new mirror on something
and it folded forward (yes, it's supposed to be able to bend back). Now
it's stiff enough to remain where I want it most of the time, but the
detent feature doesn't work. What did folding it forward actually do
internally, and is there any way to fix it?

Just about nobody is going to be able to tell by Usenet exactly how you
screwed up your new mirror.

Look at the bright side: it no longer matters whether the vendor sold
what they were advertising, since you've now broken it in a way that no
sane warranty will cover. So now you get to buy a new mirror, hopefully
being more careful to make sure it has the features you want, without
worrying about whether you should get your money back out of the old
one.

I thought someone might have had one of these mirrors apart and would be
familiar with the detent mechanism.

Maybe 'll just attack the old one and see what I can find.
