Default Broken side view mirror

Do I have to replace the entire mirror in this situation?

I would say yes to replacement. You might try some jb weld to reattach the screw mount posts but I don't think that would hold with the vibrations and wind forces.

Default Replace

I would recommend replacing. I had the same thing happen earlier on in the summer. I just ordered the mirror off Ebay. The install was easy, I actually just followed a youtube video. No sweat.

Thanks for the reply, guys. I tried some JB Weld earlier, but I didn't hold it long enough. I think I'll try it once more and then replace the mirror if I have to.
