Is It Possible To Repair Auto-Dimming Rear View Mirrors

Question

Hi all!

2 nights ago I noticed a patch of lighter colour on the rear view mirror (oval shaped, slightly above the middle) and on further inspection it looked like there was some dark colour fluid in the rest of the mirror that was missing in the patch. The next evening (i.e. yesterday), the mirror was almost totally clear, but there was some fluid on the lower quarter or so of the mirror, and further more there was fluid slowly dripping out of the bottom

the auto-dimming function is normally ON, but was OFF when I noticed the problem and the leaking (which seems to be from the switch)

Does anyone know if this kind of thing can be repaired (refill the fluid and seal the leak) or does the mirror need to be replaced?

Thanks

Saw some cheap ones coming at EEbay, why don't you give it a try. To my knowledge the answer is No.
