    Thanks Bryant.....mirror got knocked off, so have to get inside door to put screws back in and plug power cable back in. Will have to glue screw mounts back on mirror but I'll be using alittle adhesive to put mirror back on with anyway.

    Thats what I was really thinking about. Know that would be the best way. One other thing...........can you tell me where the EGR valve is located. It was hesitating alot when leaving red lights. Mechanic plugged off or bypassed what he called EGR valve. Now it runs fine, I'm just curious as to where it is.

    I have a 1989 Buick Century that won't pass emissions tests. It reads high on the noss. I have replaced the oxigen sensor and it didn't help. Could this be fixed by replacing the E.G.R. valve?

Use a putty knife if you're not worried about paint or buy a plasic mold removal kit from any parts store. remove any and all screws you may find and "pull" it off. if you know of a store called "harbor freight," it is a $5.00 kit. it comes with 4 or 5 instruments for the same purpose because they are various sizes.

    honestly you may want to go to the local salvage yard and spend the $20-$30 to get one used. the glue may not hold and you'll wind up at this point again. if you're gonna do it, you might as well do it right the first time.

    what year make and model is the car? the egr valve is usually on top towards the back of the motor. it has two bolts/studs and a hose coming out of the base of it. on top, it kind of looks like the stereotype space ship that you would see in a b rated movie.

    there are three different types offered and used for your car. and they also have four different locations. 1. behind the throttle body (top center rear). 2. next to the brake master cylinder (below and left). 3. passengers side directly under the valve cover in the head. And 4. in the intake manifold. there are 3 differnt stlyes and i really cannot describe them. the only one that i can descirbe is the one that looks like a flying saucer on top. that is the one that would be top center rear.

Cracked mirror only, mounting and other parts are functioning well. Can I purchase a mirror only and if so, where?? This is for 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix and the passenger side mirror is cracked but works...

Hello, yes the glass can be replaced. you will need to see your local GM dealer for the glass. real simple to replace.

  • Carefully push the outside rearview mirror face on the inner edge, near the front door window glass, to allow access.
  • Insert a large flat-bladed screwdriver in the slot between mirror lens and the mounting base.
  • Grasp the mirror face firmly and pull it from the mirror body.
  • Remove the outside rearview mirror case from the outside rearview mirror housing and disconnect the heater wire, if equipped.

  • Using the palm of your gloved hand, press firmly on the center of the glass until the case seats onto the motor.
  • The mirror will make a snapping noise when properly seated.
  • Inspect the mirror for proper operation.
