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

How to remove right front panel on 2000 ford


This is for the front passenger side door panel from a 1999 Ford Expedition. The driver's side door should be the same, except for the mirror switch which needs to be unplugged. The 1998 *might* be the same, I don't know, but this should be helpful to someone.

Use a flat blade screwdriver or other suitable tool to pry out on the top of the triangular plastic panel on the top front of the door panel. The plastic holder should pull out of the door. Now pry up on both sides of the triangular panel and pull it loose. Remove the philips head screw you find under this panel. Pull the door latch handle, pry out the insert where the handle goes through, and remove the bolt that holds the door handle in place. Remove the door handle. Pry up on the ends of the door switch panel to remove it. Unplug the cables by pushing in on the lock tab on the side of the plug and pulling out. Remove the philips head screw accessible through the switch panel hole. Insert a flat blade screwdriver into the slot at the bottom of the courtesy light lens and pry up and out to remove the lens. Remove the philips head screw behind this lens. Pull up on the door panel to remove it. Be careful of the courtesy light when removing the panel - give the light a quarter turn counter-clockwise from the rear to remove it from the door panel.

Its possible that this GUIDE can helpfull as reference.

Hope this help.

I need to replace passenger side mirror on 97 ford expedition


Both above answers are not right... I just replaced the Pass side power mirror assembly on my 97 Expedition. No heat, no directional.
The inside door panel must come off.
1. pry off interior triangular plastic trim piece inside of door at mirror area. Remove door panel screw at this area.
2. Pry off power window switch panel and remove door panel screw at this area.
3.Remove interior door light cover and remove screw at this area.
4. Remove plastic cover at door handle.
5. The interior door panel can now be lifted up to release it from it's fasteners.
6. Disconnect light and push power window switch assembly through the door panel and it can be set aside.
7. Disconnect mirror power at coupler.
8 Loosen three mirror mounting screws with 7/16 socket. DO NOT unscrew completely.. the will fall down the door cavity. Use a round magnet on holder to remove the screws completely.
9.Thread electrical connection into door panel and install mirror.
10. Smile when mirror works and drink a beer!
