SOURCE: to replace side view mirror for 2003 chevy impala

you should only have to remove the plastic cover at the front of the window directly behind the mirror. It should only be held in place by a few little plastic clips which are part of the cover.
Once the cover is of you should be able to see the bolts that hold the mirror to the door, if you have electric mirrors there should be a little connector plug around there that you unplug to remove the mirror
Hope this helps

SOURCE: Replace passenger side power mirror clearance lamp (bulb only).

If you are facing the passenger side mirror adjust the top (large) mirror so that it is turning in towards the truck as far as it will go. Then look behind the mirror in the bottom righthand corner (outside bottom corner) and you will see a silver metal clip. Take a straight head screw driver and push on that clip and the lens will pop out. Then you simply unscrew the bulb holder from the lens and replace your bulb. Good luck!

You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Disconnect the wires / cables connecting the mirror to the controller and then you can remove the bolts holding the mirror onto the door and it'll just pop out...I've never tried to take apart the mirror itself because the clips holding the backing in the housing seem to break easily

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door

SOURCE: Key won't turn in 2008 Chevy Cobalt. Tried moving

now what it sounds like is the key has a sensor built in it the keys cost around 60.00$ but this is most likely what is wrong. the sensor is a security feature with the car if the light glows while trying to turn the car then this your problem :)

I need instructions on how to replace the mirror (glass only) for the left side (driver side) rear view mirror on my 2008 Ford Edge.


This is how the glass shops in my area do it. Clean all the glass out of the mirror carefully. Don't want stitchs. Clean all the old glue off with a knife or razor blade and wash it with window cleaner. Wash the back of the new mirror as well with window cleaner. Put a liberal coat of silicone adhesive on the back of the new mirror and press it into place. Place a small block of wood or plastic on the mirror face and tape it on with black electrical tape. Stretch the tape as you wrap it around, make about 2 complete wraps. Do this on the inside and outside of the new mirror and leave it for 24 hours. Then you simply remove the tape and blocks and nobody will know the difference. Hope this helps. You could also get a auto glass shop to do it. It's not especially expensive. Hope this helps.

Removing the driver side mirror from a 2008 3/4


ok on the inside of the door at the corner where the mirror is you will see a black plastic cover. take a flat head screwdriver and slide beetween the cover and the door and pry on it. you will hear it snap but it is just the retaining clips coming out dont worry you can reuse them. once off you will see three nuts remove those nuts i think they are 10mm and the mirror will come right off. if its power there will be a wiring plug that you will have to un-couple but its pretty self explanitory after that

Broken driver side mirror


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.
