helloI'm assuming that your mirror has had an impact? the mirror should 1st fold back against the car body which absorbs most of the blow typically they can take about 10 -12 lbs strike force to fold it back so if the force doesn't exceed this it should fold the mirror back without harm ( except a paint scuff)
