Wing Mirror

Evening guys. Quick question. Can one just replace the mirror glass or do you have to replace the entire wing mirror?

Some knobhead completely shattered the wing mirror today in a parking lot (without so much as even leaving a note of apology), and the heating pad behind the glass can be clearly seen.

Thanks in advance for your replies

If you are patient and take your time you can remove the shattered glass/element from the housing and lift the old shattered glass off the heating element. Then re-bond the element to the new mirror and replace. I used a light layer of Epoxy resin for the bonding and the element still defrosts in the cold OK.
