These are not too difficult to remove, you just need to know where the hidden fasteners are. The usual plastic clips hold the panel around the sides and bottom, and need to be gently pried up, ideally with the tool designed for this. At the back of the armrest there is a reflector, a sort of triangle shaped thing, which must be removed, by working a slim screwdriver in at the top, to push down on the clip that holds it. This clip is sort of sawtooth shaped, bends down when installed, and pops back up when in place. When it's out, you'll see a 10mm bolt which secures the door panel to a bracket on the door, looking straight in through the hole. Remove it. The power window switch assembly needs to be removed to access the other two of these lag bolts. There is a spring clip at the front of the switch, you need to work a tool (screwdriver or similar) GENTLY in between the front of the switch and the armrest, and push this clip backward. The front of the switch can be raised, and the switch slides forward and out.There are two bolts holding the panel to a bracket looking down through the opening. After that, it's just the usual clips. Good luck!

Need to replace drivers side rear view mirror, powered. I have the new mirror, just need to know how t install it.


Hi,
You remove the door panel on the inside and it is bolted on from the inside. One wire clip and 3 bolts. Takes longer to remove and replace the door panel than replace the mirror....look for a hidden screw under the armrest , under the window/door lock button panel and sometimes behind the reflector or light on the bottom of door..Usually there are 3-4 screws and then the rest of the panel is held on by plastic clips. Get the screws out, then work a flat screwdriver or putty knife around the sides and bottom of panel, then lift upwards to get the top sealing side out of the track where the window runs.....Mike

I need to replace the driver side power mirror on my 1997 Buick LeSabre Limited. How do I remove the interior door panel to have access to the mirror clips and electrical connection?


First screws are on the bottom side of the inside door pull/ arm rest, and after that there may be a few around the edges of the panel. unscrew the up and down locking pin if it has one up there by the window, gently pull out at the bottom to release the plastic push pins and once all pins are pulled out (there are probably 10 to release) reach in between the panel and gently take apart the connections. Lift up and out to free the panel of the window gaskets and there you are, Be easy with it all that stuff breaks easily!!!!

How to remove passenger door panel on 97 lesabre


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 remove the bolts holding the mirror on

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!
