Does your mirror look like this one?
I also included the manufactures catalog.
Hope this helps.

You could drill directly through to the inside the out a plate in there to help make it stiffer.

Alternately you could fill the hole with epoxy. Then once it's setup and hard you could redrill the hole you need. This repair seems to be a favorite of Tom Silva on this Old House. You'd have to find an epoxy kit that will let you squirt the epoxy into the hole. Make sure you use epoxy that doesn't expand as it sets up (most don't) since that might push the wall apart.

You should also check the passenger-side window for leaks. The factory screws on my 2000 were rusted almost completely away! The mirror almost fell off while I was washing it.

Mine turned out to be blocked window drains. I drilled through and installed a piece of mahogany and used stainless screws and cap nuts.

The luan plywood was so "delicate" there, due to the window leak, that nutserts wouldn't work.

I'm a big fan of nutserts, and use them where ever I can. Had to pass on this one, though!
