Disconnect your negative battery cable, if your Ford Focus has power side mirrors. If it has manual side mirrors, disconnecting the battery is unnecessary.
Pry off the wing mirror's inside sail panel (shaped like a triangle). Insert a trim panel tool between the door skin and the plastic panel to pry it off.
Carefully pull the sail panel away, minding the wiring if the mirror is power-operated. Unplug the electrical harness and set the panel aside.
Open the door and hold the outside part of the wing mirror steady. Remove the mounting bolt with a socket wrench, and then remove the mirror screw with a Phillips screwdriver (the mirror bolt and screw is visible with the panel removed).
Pull the wing mirror assembly from its mount (from the outside). Insert the replacement mirror assembly in place; tighten the bolt and the screw.
Attach the wiring connection to the replacement mirror. Position the sail panel in place and push it against the door to snap it back on.
To remove the rear light assembly for access to turn signals and brake lights: 1) Open the trunk to expose two screws. 2) Remove these two screws. 3) There are two brackets still holding the housing onto the car. Do NOT pull up and do NOT pull up on the housing; you will break the plastic pegs on the lamp housing.
4) Referring to the driver side lamp housing and facing the back of the car:
a) You can see these pegs and brackets on your left hand side if you pull the light housing GENTLY outward. The pegs are pointing into the vehicle from the left side of the car and stick into holes. There is also a spring bracket holding the housing on where the screws are.
b) To remove the housing from the brackets, push/pull the right side of the lamp housing outward and to the left. Do this carefully so that you do not break any of the plastic pegs. What you are looking to do is detach the housing from the spring bracket, and then push/pull the pegs from their holes. You are simply rotating the lamp housing out of the brackets.
Simply mirror instructions for removal of passenger side housing.
Replacement: This part is a little easier. Line the pegs up with the holes, and then push gently to line up spring bracket with it's hole. Then, push with a little force to get the spring in the hole. Make sure the pegs are in their holes or else it will be crooked and loose.
Take your time! You do not want to break the plastic. It should eventually come loose. With any plastic on your vehicle, be careful not to force it. Good luck!
Turn the engine off, open the hood, and disconnect the negative battery cable (--) with your pliers.
Locate the power distribution box against the firewall on the driver's side of the engine compartment. Flip up the latch and remove the plastic cover.
Determine which headlight fuse you want to replace. The 2001 Ford Focus uses four headlight fuses--one for each headlight. Fuse number 16 is for the passenger side low beam; fuse number 17 is for the driver's side low beam. Fuse number 26 is for the passenger side high beam; fuse number 27 is for the driver's side high beam.
Grasp the fuse with your fingers and pull it straight out of its mount. Insert the new fuse in its place. Replace the plastic cover and reconnect the negative battery cable.

Hope helps (remember comment and rated this). TY for using Fixya.
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.
i just replaced the passenger side on mine and this is what i did.
1. on the back side of the mirror housing is a half moon shaped plastic piece. gently remove that from the housing, exposing a portion of the back side of the mirror.
2. disconnect the two wires (remember rt and lf). carefully, with a pry tool, apply pressure on the center of the back side of the mirror, it will pop loose.
3. once the mirror is off there should be a round plastic piece attached to the back side of the mirror. on the passenger side there is a tab in the upper left side. lift up on the tab and slide the plastic piece down...it should slide off.
4. once you have the plastic piece off it goes on the back of the new mirror in the opposite way. you line up the four cross tabs and slide the mirror up until the tab grabs it.
5. put the mirror back in the housing by lining the circle (on back side center of mirror plate) with the center of the mirror housing. genlty apply pressure on the center of the mirror (i had to hit it firmly with the palm of my hand) unitl it snaps into place.
6. once it snaps into place you can reconnect the two wires to the back of the mirror and install the back side plastic housing......DONE
remove the broken glass with putty knife. go to a auto glass shop they can sell you a replacement heated mirror glass. the new glass is just glued to plastic housing in mirror and just plug in 2 little wires to back of glass were heat element is.hope this helps good luck.
The mirror will pull out. There are two power control arms behind the mirror and in the center is sort of a ball and joint connection. Pull firmly and the mirror will come off. However you can buy a mirror assembly from a salvage yard and have the mirror already attached. I recently replaced one on my Excursion. I have a casing with no mirror.
Interesting and fairly easy to do. I pried off the black plastic interior trim piece by simply pulling carefully on the end facing the windshield, then pulling at the back end. Came off fairly easily. Once off, I could see the wire connector. The mirror has a short wire which goes through the body of the car and connects to the wire connector which comes from inside the door. I did have to take out the two screws holding the front part of the door panel. This was to weave the wires back through because the go below the top of the door panel through the door body.
Once that was done I found the main screw through a barely big enough hole in the door and took that out.
Once that was off, all I had to do was take out one more screw that goes through the front metal body of the door into the mirror assembly.
It was just a process of weaving the wire back through the door, then I installed the front small screw next to hold the mirror in place, then I put in the big screw that really holds the mirror on, connected the wire back together and put the screws back into the door panel. Snap on the inside plastic piece and you're done.
It took me about 30 minutes or so and I had never done it before.
there should be a plastic cover on the inside of the car where the mirror is take this off and there will be a connector block unplug this and there should be screws undo them and the whole thing should come off themn and you should be able to seperate them then.
