    I have the same problem only it is a "manual" not electric mirror. There are 3 cables coming from inside the car to the hang off mirror. How do I disassemble and replace? I've gone online and gotten prices for another mirror. Anything I need to be aware of?

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.

How to replace a 2001 ford focus headlight switch assembly


p, li { white-space: pre-wrap; }

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.
