Greetings,

While this might be repairable, it's probably not by you. 😩

Given the camera is 13 yrs old, it would be more prudent and economical to replace the camera.  When things start "falling out" of the camera, that's the action I suggest you take.  

Replacement T3i/600D's range $131-$199 used.  You'd spend that or more to repair.

What do you mean mirror clip and where did it come from on the camera. Take a picture of where the part came from.

 I Dont Know Whats The Name Of It 😅

That's the reflex mirror that bounces light up to the viewfinder. Without it you can't see anything in the viewfinder. Your camera is now INOPERABLE without. You can't take a picture without it either the camera will display an error code. I don't think parts are even available anymore. So you will need a new mirror box assembly and shutter assembly. Both parts exceed the value of your camera even if it's available anymore. I highly doubt parts are available anymore.

But The Camera Has No Damage Only The Mirrors...

A Year Ago The Shutter Was Damaged.. I Fixed It by moving The Plastic Things

Now The Mirrors I Will See If I Can Find A a Local Fixer

Once the shutter fails your camera is done. It's not worth repairing an entry level camera like the Digital Rebel. I'd agree with my colleague it's replacement time. If the reflex mirror inside the camera that bounces light up to the viewfinder is broken. The camera is done and needs replacement.

The camera has damage the shutter and mirror assembly are broken. So I don't see how the camera is NOT damaged.

Hi @Baraa2,

I'm sorry this happened.  I know its frustrating, but the cost to repair will likely exceed the cost to replace. 

We want you to have a reliable, functioning camera.  This was why I suggested replacement over repair.
