Rear View Mirror Fix

So long story short I busted my windshield and my rear view mirror.

Had windshield replaced but was told I ha to replace the auto-dimming mirror ($400 in a good day). I would really like to avoid paying another $400. Is there anyway this can be fixed?

I assume the ball won't just pop back into place? Hard to tell exactly what is broken from these photos.

If none of the clips were broken or wires ripped, you should be able to pop it right in.
