Need to replace the driver's side rear view mirror

I picked up a replacement mirror at a local salvage yard. The owner said it takes him about 3 minutes to put one on. Maybe I'm even worse at understanding automobiles than I thought, but I can't get the door frame open to replace the mirror. How do I replace this mirror without breaking anything?

Pry the door panel loose and let it hang. The power window panel can be pried out and twisted down through the panel to give you room to work. Unplug power mirror connector if you have one. Three screws behind the foam plugs will remove mirror. Be careful lining up the plastic door panel anchors when assembling.

Just gently pry the door panel off...There may be a screw in the arm rest and the door handle , but the rest should just pop of...f Now the power door lock will be a challenge to put back on but if you play with it you will succeed...

Good luck

How much would it cost to repair a side view mirror on a 2013 Ford Fiesta


This would depend greatly on the availability of this part in your area.
First try contacting junk yards, you can pick up parts for next to nothing, and sometimes nothing here.
Second would be checking with local parts retailers.
Online searches have brought up anywhere between $50 - $150
Looks like 2011 to 2013 may fit on the same vehicle.

Hi, Where can I get a Owner manual for Toyota Hiace Regius Granvia, 2000, 2693cc.


The best place to get one cheap would be a auto salvage yard. Call your local auto salvage dealer and ask if they have that make and model of vehicle in there yard. If they do they probably have the manual in that cars glove box and you can probably go pick it up for only a few dollars. If your local salvage yard does not have one you will probably have to go to the Toyota dealer and have one ordered. I hope this answers your question.

I need to replace my driver side mirror on my 2004 chevy impala. Can you tell me how I must do this and where is a good place to find an inexpensive replacement? Thank you


This is a common need...(replacing an outside mirror due to damage:) You can locate how to remove the old one by finding the panel inside of your drivers door...usually a small pop off panel...inside you will need to pull out the rubber inslulation in order to see the 3 - 10mm bolt heads...all three bolt heads need to be removed...also unplug the electric connection that runs from the inside base of the mirror...your best bet to find a replacement...(including color) is a salvage yard...probably $25 to $35...You can contact most salvage yards to pull this mirror for you, but your best bet is to visit the salvage yard yourself...and dis-assemble one for yourself...not a lengthy repair...hope this helps...:)

I need to replace a broken mirror on the passenger side sun visor. Where can I get the part from and how is this best done?


I would try your local salvage yard. A brand new one from Toyota would be very expensive. Salvage yards usually have a good selection of colors to match your cars interior color AND they can probably tell you how to remove your old one.
Good Luck.

How to replace the outside shell of a ford focus right hand wing mirror, i don't want to replace the whole mirror just the colour shell.


Hm, this may be a trip to the dealer.. Other alternatives include your local salvage yards. Carpart.com (a search tool which searches the inventory of scap yards nationwide) shows a few mirrors on there, but they are the same price as new ones listed on eBay. Good luck!

Mirror controls don't work anymore.


2 things you can try,pop the switch apart carefully,clean the contacts with rubbing alcohol,put back together the exact way it came apart---or you can go to a auto salvage yard and pick up 2 or 3 used ones out of even a Ford or Mercury minivan-to a taurus ,or anything that has the same shape...a used one should only cost about $1.00--$3.00..pick up a few because not all may be good and you will have to keep returning there until you get 1 that works..Thats how i fixed my 2000 F150 mirrors

My mirrors have been forming some sort of "rust" look to them. So, I want to just replace the mirror and not the entire mirror assembly. How do I fix it and where can I get the glass from?


Three options that I would try are:
1) Buy an "Eraser" its like a foam pad that you put on a drill and it takes a lot of little scuffs and what not out..(good thing to have anyway)
2) If you are looking for the most inexpensive way you can goto your auto parts store..(Auto Zone, Advanced, etc..) and buy either a replacement.(often isn't an exact fit); or a cut to fit which has an adheisive backing but takes a little time...
3) Contact your local salvage yards and get one from them..(may be the entire assembly.
