I have tried to push the metal ball (cast) back into the tube arm it has come out of but it wont go in no mater how hard I try. Obviously the end of the tube is slightly rounded and smaller than the ball itself so when it is in there the mirror pivots on it without coming out. When he twisted it he oviously created some leverage that yanked it form its socket.. unfortunately for me getting it back in seems to be alot trickier!
any ideas how I can do this? Nothing is really broiken as such so I dont want to pay for a new one unless I have to.. its just he ball socket joint thats come apart but wont go back together!!!
