944 Mirror help?

I have posted a few times about an accident I had and repairing the damage. Last thing to be done is reparing the passenger side mirror. Does anyone know what the mirror is made of and ideas on how to repair it? The little metal tab that stops the torx screw from just going straight through the mirror has broken off. Im thinking of maybe trying to weld it or something? or is it made out Aluminium?

I think its some kind of alloy.

Probably best to pick up a used one on ebay.

Ok,

I doubt the JB weld will work but you can try it.

Other option would be to carefully drill out the existing hole to leave a collar and fit a washer with the original screw.

Either way you'll have to be careful tightening it as it will be weak.

Best of luck,

I would think JB Weld would be stronger than super glue. It won't hurt to try. They make some pretty strong epoxies these days.

I have a set of those mirrors for sale (in red) if you need them. They have the 928 part numbers which I see yours do too. The early 944s must use the 928 part numbered mirrors. I bought this set to replace a broken one on my 87. It wasn't until I received them that I realized the late 944 mirrors are slightly different and have a 944 part number.

The mirrors I bought have heated glass and as such the wiring harness is different. The base of the mirror is also a slightly different shape. Something to be aware of if you are buying used mirrors online like I did.
