I mean, I have a whole spare camera, purchased for parts because I needed to replace a cracked part of the case (so if anyone needs eg a sensor, lcd, pcb ... I am the person to ask)

Ah right. Well then you don't have much to lose. Unfortunately I can't help you further. What might be helpful is looking for diagrams or cut-through photos of the camera to see how the mirror is attached. Be sure you have all the right tools before you start, and be careful not to get too much dust in the mirror box while you do this
