How much is a mirror fix on a 5D classic?

Honestly, probably more than it would cost to buy a good used copy.  I'd be surprised if the parts are even available.  Maybe you can buy one on ebay that doesn't work but has a good mirror, then find a shop that can replace the mirror on yours from the used body.

Easy to fix yourself, just re-glue it carefully in the proper spot. You could use special glue, but crazy glue should work just fine. Then once I'm sure it's properly glued down, I'd put a bit more glue to bridge the edges of the mirror with the mechanism to make sure it's secured in place.

I fixed mine with super glue. Too bad Canon didn't use super glue when they made it.
