At $400 it sounds like he is going to replace it, and not repair it.
Items like outside mirrors do not easily lend themself to repair.
They are pretty much go/no go items.

Taking the inside door panel off is easy.
Roll the window down.
Remove any screws holding the trim (should be by the door release lever, and possible 1 or 2 at the edge of the panel).
Also, some models have bigger screws/bolts just under the armrest, remove those also.
GM uses a plastic "christmas tree" fastner in the door panels. It is easiest if you purchase a door panel removal tool (Couple of $ at any auto parts store).
Start at the lower edge, slide the tool between the trim panel and the door, and pry up gently.
Work your way around the door (F&R edges, and the lower) until the panel is free,
Then slide the panel up (it is hooked into the window channel).

To remove the mirror, there are 3 nuts on the back side. Remove those, while someone is holding the mirror, and then pull the mirror out a little. Disconnect the wiring plug to the mirror.

This whole process shouldn't take you more then 10 to 15 minutes. People that do it all the time usually do it in 3 to 5 min. So it is a simple job.

Reinstalling it, is just the reverse of the removal.

You may want to look at aftermarket mirrors, or you may what to try a salvage yard for a replacement part if the factory replacements are too expensive.
As mentioned earlier, these are go/no go items, so there are no "instructions" on how to fix them.

Door is loked on rear driver side want open


Won't open from outside? Won't open from inside? Equipped with power door locks? IF so, and won't open inside/outside, suspect stuck power door lock actuator. Sometimes working the lock/unlock button will make the door unlock. If not, the door will require disassembly from inside to determine what the failure may be. If the door needs disassembly while in the closed position, the paneling/clips may get damaged FYI

I have a vibrating outside mirror on the driver side and am trying to replace how to get it off the frame


You have to take off the door panel. You will see three nuts on the other side of the mirror. There should be some sound proofing that you will need to pull out to see them. It's pretty easy once the panel is off.

Good luck

I need to know the distance that the drivers side mirror protrudes from the curvature of the door? and also if the outside drivers mirror is molded plastic into the frame of the car?


The outside mirrors attach to the door frame using 3 nuts that attach to studs that are part of the mirror. You can access the attachments by opening the door and removing the triangular shaped plastic trim piece, removing a piece of foam insulation and then you can see the three nuts to remove.

The drivers side door mirror glass(not the whole unit,just the actual mirror itself ) is loose & vibrates when driving.how/can? you tighten it up?


Either it's a cheap replacement mirror that can't be tightened. Or, the original (oe) has been hit hard enough to displace on of the plastic attachments behind the mirror. Adjust the mirror to the extreme right so you can peek behind the mirror to look for an displaced attachment. Line the 2 points up and firmly with a gloved hand, push into place until you hear it "click" into place. Good luck

Need instructions to replace drivers side rear view mirror glass.


Outside Mirrors REMOVAL & INSTALLATION The mirrors on these models can be removed from the door without disassembling the door liner or other components. Both left and right outside mirrors may be either manual, manual remote (small lever on the inside to adjust the mirror) or electric remote. If the mirror glass is damaged, replacements may be available through your dealer or a reputable glass shop in your area. If the plastic housing is damaged or cracked, the entire unit will need to be replaced. Manual
  1. Remove the set screw and the adjustment knob, if equipped.
  2. Remove the delta cover; that's the triangular black inner cover. It can be removed with a blunt plastic or wooden tool. Don't use a metal prytool; the plastic will be marred.
  3. Fig. 1: Use a tapped ended tool to pry the trim from the mirror 89550g29.gif

  4. Depending on the style of mirror, there may be concealment plugs or other minor parts under the delta cover — remove them.
  5. Support the mirror housing from the outside and remove the three bolts or nuts holding the mirror to the door.
  6. Remove the mirror assembly.
  7. Installation is the reverse of removal.
  8. Power
    1. Turn the ignition key to the OFF position. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Wait at least 90 seconds from the time the negative battery was disconnected to start work. CAUTION
      Some models covered by this manual may be equipped with a Supplemental Restraint System (SRS), which uses an air bag. Whenever working near any of the SRS components, such as the impact sensors, the air bag module, steering column and instrument panel, disable the SRS, as described in Section 6.
    2. Remove the delta cover; that's the triangular black inner cover. It can be removed with a blunt plastic or wooden tool. Don't use a metal prytool; the plastic will be marred.
  9. Depending on the style of mirror, there may be concealment plugs or other minor parts under the delta cover — remove them.
  10. Depending on the type of door trim, you may need to remove the door inner panel to access the electrical wiring harness for the mirror.
  11. Support the mirror housing from the outside and remove the three bolts or nuts holding the mirror to the door.
  12. If the wiring to the electric mirror was not disconnected previously, detach it now. Some connectors can only be reached after the mirror is free of the door. Remove the mirror assembly.
  13. Installation is the reverse of removal. Cycle the mirror several times to make sure that it works properly.
