Convex mirror attachment

The convex mirror on my 2000 Bounder fell out. It isn't broken although I am having a hard time getting it to snap back onto the ball part inside the mirror head.

I don't want to press too hard and risk braking it. Looks like there are 4 snaps that hold it to the ball portion.

Anyone done this before and can help me?

Thank you

It should snap on, but we're talking 16 year old plastic. I'd put a rag over the socket and clips, and pour hot water on the rag to heat up the plastic, hopefully making it more flexible. A wet rag and a heat gun aimed at the wet rag would also heat it up.

Great idea. I will try the heat gun and wet rag and let you know how it goes. I am just hesitant to force it too much. Like you said, it's 16 years old.
