Wave Wing Mirror Housing/Brake query

Two things - the wee black bit on the underside of the wing mirror housing has come out in my car leaving the housing a bit loose. Can this be purchased separately or does anyone have one around I can buy? PLease . . . .
Also - rear caliper sticking slightly. Best way to free off without resorting to stripping down (brakes - not me . . . . . . . ) if possible.
Gracias (said the man who fell in the meadow)

Re: Wing Mirror Housing/Brake query

I follow this thread as it may be relevant to my corroded mirror support. (Picture here).

The offside is fine and looks like new. I've no idea what caused the corrosion/crud on the driver's side ...

Re: Wing Mirror Housing/Brake query

you ned to take the whel off and apply copper grease to the sliding parts o fthe caliper, but since it is alrady sticking you dfirst need to clean it down with a wire brush. realisticaly this mean you need to remove the pads from the caliper.
