Smile Piece for SL320 rearview mirror

Hi..
First of all, THANKS in advance!!!!
My rearview mirror broke. WhenI opened it up, I found the place piece that holds the post in place (It is stamped with a part number 140533) is broken. I have enclosed a picture of the mirror piece for your reference.

Any idea how I get a replacement for or fix this without buying a new mirror?

140 is a S class part number. I have the exact same mirror.
There's no replacement socket and these things are notoriously weak. The cheapest thing to do here that I know of is "rigging" it to function the same. I also did away with two broken tabs for a long time with no issues. However that part code refers to the whole unit as far as I know. Try looking for a used S/SL class mirror?

Do a search for this issue. A fix has been posted with an excellent write-up along with pictures.
