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

To add to Super_Guy's excellent comment, this is an easy 20 minute job. And on my wife's '98 Century, it was NOT necessary to disconnect any door handle linkage or door wiring. Once the two 4mm hex screws are removed from the door grip area, and the one Phillips screw from the handle area above it, just pop the plastic retaining clips loose around the edges of the door panel, and rest the panel upright on the garage floor where it is leaning against the door, with NO strain on the wiring. The only wiring I disconnected was the single plug for the mirror (my mirror job was a complete replacement - not just tightening). Three 10mm nuts secure the mirror in place. FYI - not having the correct tool for the job of releasing the plastic clips, I just used a small putty knife with a thin, stiff blade to get next to the clips and twist to pop them loose, being careful with the paint. FYI - because the 2015 online price is only $28 or so, it might be easier to replace a problem loose or stuck mirror.
Hope this helps someone else.

It's not that hard to replace the passenger side mirror. You will be able to do it yourself. I will tell you how. Remove the screw holding the molding to the base of the mirror and remove the molding. Remove the screws and detach the mirror. (if it is electric mirror just unplug the electrical connector. Installation is the reverse of removal. Hope this will help you.

How to replace passenger side mirror. Glass is


You can usually just replace the mirror, any commercial auto-glass store has the glass you need. sometimes it is necessary to replace the mirror and its backing (a plastic frame which snaps into the adjustable motor) you don't need to replace the whole mirror unless the housing is broken.

Please rate this answer. Thank you.

Need to replace Mirror Assembly, 03 suburban


Your going to have to remove the inside door panel to get to the three bolts that hold the out side mirror assembly. Once you have the door panel off you'll see the three bolts that hold the mirror assembly, just un-bolt and un-clip the wire harness to the electric/heated mirror. To install the new mirror assembly, just do everything in reveres. Go to Auto Zone and by extra door panel clips, there is a good chance of breaking some of the retainer clips and Auto Zone will have the step by step instructions to replacing the mirror assembly and the removal to the door panel. Good luck and keep me posted. Be glad to help.

I used google to do a search for this and typed in "instructions replace side mirror". There is a guide on e-bay that pops right up and it gives you pretty detailed instructions. They are not vehicle specific but should give you all the information that you need. The web page says How to replace a broken side mirror on your car-associated content. I hope this helps, it looked like it had plenty of great information.

2000 Pontiac Grand Prix Passenger Side rear view mirror


As the owner of a 2001 Grand Prix GTP I can tell you that the mirror you speak of is not terribly difficult to replace, but you need the tools to remove the inside panels in the front corner of the window to get to it. Once you get that off there should be three bolts/nuts that hold the mirror on and if you have power mirrors then of course you'll have an electrical connector in there as well.

I dont have any instructions wrote up but there is a Grand Prix car club forum you can check that may have some information on how to replace it in more detail. You can go to grandprixforums.net, sign up and post up your problem and Im sure someone there will probably have specific instructions.
