should be 3 screws in the handle, with caps over them, also 2 screws in the in the crease when you open door they are closest to the hinges and i believe there are 2 more on the side of the door opposite of the mirror side, they all have small screw covers over them so they are kind of hidden, then there are 2 to 3 pop ins in the bottom of the panel that you might have to pull out but they are on the inside of the panel, the door handle cover is a lil hard to get off you will have to mess with it alil but there arent any screws holding it on
If you pull off the triangular black plastic trim behind the mirror, you will see the mirror wiring. If there is no plug, you will have to pull off the door panle. .....SOME Japanese cars have the plugs, but not all of them...Americian built cars do not. They are different.
ft door panel has 2 round covers for 2 screws, arm rest has 2 0r 3 screws(ft mid and rear of rest) 2 push in clips on right side of panel, 1 cover for screw middle about 6 inches from bottom. tricky part is door handle bezel. where the inner handle pivots, insert small screwdriver and pry up,it should pop out and do the same for the bottom. p.s. be very cautious with regulator when installing it to motor.if cables come unspooled,your screwed.
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 access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door
You can ask as many questions as you want, Sir. That is what we are here for! No problem!
To answer your question, the connector for the mirror is behind the door panel, and it is difficult to unplug thru the side of the panel. I have already tried that years ago...
You could, if you want to, cut, splice and solder the wires, assuming that they are all of the same color, on both mirrors.
If you want, I can e-mail you a .pdf for the door panel removal procedure, FixYa is not set up to display .pdfs yet. Please advise.
The graciousness of FixYa ratings for this and the previous question would be greatly appreciated!
You do need to pull the door panel off, as the wire from the mirror is plugged into the door harness under the middle of the door panel. The tringular plastic panel just pulls off, start at the top. There is no difference Japan vs USA production. The mirror is held on by 3 10 mm bolts behind the triangular plastic panel.
Hope this helps. The graciousness of a FixYa rating for my solution would be greatly appreciated.
I am the original owner of camry xle 1998 with wet floors. In 2000 I had drivers side door seal leaking at welt. Removed old door seal and new weather strip on drivers side installed. The door panel was never wet, but wet at bottom of door where there are drain holes...slowly leaking under carpet.
In 2001 later water again. Coming from overflowing A/C evaporator-drain plugged/ tank full of debris. Removed evaporator, cleaned + drain cleaned.
In 2003, driver door seal against window rotted. Removed door panel and found leak at window belt molding at the mirror joint inside + out. Lots of mold under carpet needed to replace! Made a fuss at dealers for reacurring problem and they replaced the carpet for free.
