Open the door, on the opposite side of the mirror there is an interior panel, remove it, there are 3 nuts in there remove those, the mirror should come off, if it is power be sure to unplug it.

SOURCE: Replacing passenger side mirror

If you are replacing the entire mirror assembly you have to remove the door panel.

First remove the switch plate by prying upward at the rear of the switch plate and unhook the connectors. Then remove the two armrest screws. The door panel then has to be pryed away from the door to release the clips. They don't give up easily so yo may have to force it a bit. Once the clips are loose pull up on the panel to remove it from the window reveal molding. The mirror is held on with three 10mm nuts. remove those and unhook the wiring from in the door. Install is reverse of removal.

Good Luck

SOURCE: replacing passenger side mirror on 2005 toyota corolla.

I did exactly that on my Corolla CE recently. Pop the triangular plastic shield out on the inside, remove three nuts, disengage the electric line if you see one and that's it. If you want to get more specifics look the procedure up in the Haynes repair book for Corollas 2003-2005. By the way, the mirrors on Corrollas have, as so often, been constructed by people who never drove these cars. Mirrors get hit on and there should be a joint that allows the mirrors to fold inward. The Corrolla mirrors are still; they have no joint, so when they get hit they push the metal they are mounted on inward and later on you have a poor fit after chnaging them. These American-made Corrollas are in many respect the same **** as other American-made cars.

no the door pannel does not need to come off but there is a triangle shaped plastic trim pannel above the door pannel that needs to be removed to access the mounting bolts.

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

Outside mirrors won't move


Can you hear anything coming from the mirror? Is only one working? If so, its possible that your mirror motor has died on you. If you're not hearing anything from both sides, I would check the fuse and voltage going to the fuse. If that's good then you could either check wiring from mirror motors to the module. I believe the controller is the general module located under the front passenger kick panel. Or you could also swap out the switch block for the mirror assembly as you could return that. Replacing the programming the GM will burn it to your vehicle.

Removing and replacing passenger side mirror 2002 town and country van


there should be a triangle shaped plastic section on the interior of the door behind the mirror, check it for a little plastic screw cover to remove it or you may just have to lever it gently to remove it.
once it is off it exposes the mirror retaining bolts which you undo to remove the mirror, I presume it has electric mirrors and if that is the case you will have to find the electrical wire plug for the mirror and pull it apart, replace mirror in reverse order of removing

I checked Ford Focus mirror replacement and it seems to be the same. This is for the manual, unheated mirror.

Remove the mirror cover inside the door - slide a screwdriver behind the cover and pry loose carefully.

Remove the single 10mm bolt and the mirror comes free.
NB. Do not drop the bolt into the door.
