- The glass and rim are reinstalled by positioning them carefully and pressing or snapping the rim into place at each tab.

The light bulb is not a "special" French bulb. By locating the numbers on the bulb a matching replacement can be found by doing an internet search using the numbers. If numbers cannot be located on the bulb, you can still find the correct bulb by purchasing a bulb with with a base designated E12, E14, or E17. Match the millimeter size to the size of the socket in your mirror. See the image, below.
