Wing mirror knocked, now swinging on mount!

Hi,

Today my wing mirror was clipped by another car. This caused it to roate the entire way back so it was facing the other way. Nothing obvious seemed to break but the wing mirror is now loose and swings around on it's mount.
I have taken the entire mount off by undoing the 3 bolts but Im looking for some advice on where to go from here. There is a spring in the unit which im guessing provided the tension to fold the mirrors in and out before the knock.

Any help and advice will be greatly appreciate!

Its a 2002 Mini Cooper. Thanks in advance

May be easier to get a good secondhand mirror mount from here:
