Question about 2002 GMC Envoy
The mirror constantly vibrates when driving, I need drawings to see how to take the door panel off and tighten, the dealer wants over $400 to do this.
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.
