Default Driver door mirror issue

Something I think broke. The adjustment lever won't stay in place and the mirror is "looking" left and up. I put a wedge of paper in to hold it in place between the mirror and housing as a band aid. Looks to me there is something broke on the lever like a pin or spring has broke. Is this repairable or a complete mirror replacement? It's a 2003 base model. See photos. Thanks in advance!

I had no idea that Cruisers could be had with a manual type mirror that uses a cable to operate.

I believe that a cable has broken between your control lever and the mirror head itself.

If it were me I'd just replace the whole darn thing at this point-they can't be that expensive....

Rock Auto sells the mirrors as a whole...20+ dollars. look under Body section, bought manual version for my wife's car.
