Question about 2008 Chevrolet Cobalt

Broken driver side mirror

Hey,

I had my 08 Cobalt LS Coupe hit in the parking and the driver side mirror was damaged. Since the mirrors are manual and the housing is not damaged all I was thinking I needed to do is replace the mirror. Does anyone know what is involved in this?

Thanks
Moe

You can buy replacement stick on mirrors at most auto stores... different sizes or you actually cut it to the size you want.... cut out a peice of cardboard to make a template till it fits right on the mirror on the car and use that to get the replacement mirror you need or cut the replacement mirror to size.... peel off the paper on the back... then line up the mirror and push firmly starting in the center of the mirror working outward to make sure the sticky side sticks.

Google replacement mirror glass for Ford Edge 08.

They make a replacement mirror glass available that uses double sticky tape. This has worked great for me. The heated function still continued to work!! In my case I replaced a scratched mirror leaving the old mirror in place. If yours is broken included is a link for a procedure to replace a broken mirror.

Confirm the dimensions before purchasing. Some car manufactures have more than one design for different model cars same year..

Tighten side mirror


If the mirror housing is loose and nothing has hit it and broken the mounting to the door frame, yes. If it is the glass part that is loose and it is a electric or manual mirror, something has damaged it behind the glass replacing it will fix problem.

How do you install a driver side mirror?


hey, I replaced a mirror on a 2002 civic lx coupe.

1) Pry off the small pastic traingular piece from the interior of your door.
2) Disconnect the wiring to the mirror
3) There will be 3 bolts that attach the mirror to the car, remove these and the mirror can be removed. To put on the new mirror just do everything in reverse

Just make sure you order the right mirror, I accidentally order the mirror for the sedan model the first time and they are not interchangable.

Hope this helps

07 Cobalt Power Mirrors


I would have a dealership take a look at the wiring. It sounds like it may be shorting out somewhere, possibly inside the door. I am unsure if the door locks and mirror motors are linked, but I would assume it would explain the fuse location in the owners manual.

If you are unable to locate the manual, I can dig mine out of my trunk.
