I used a take-a-look mirror for a while, but realized that I didn't like the blind spot that it caused to my peripheral vision. I switched to a bar end mirror and like it much better.

If you do decide to make changes to it, don't tear it down until you have the new parts in hand. The pandemic has affected even the availability of bike parts.
