I need to replace the driver's side mirror on an 03 Chevy Tahoe.
I need help with locating the release points for the drivers side door panel so I can get to the wiring harness for the mirror. I did not see any clips or screws that hold it in place and don't want to break it while attempting to get it off. Any experience with this model?

Re: I need to replace the driver's side mirror on an 03...
Dont know tjis model but any car i`ve done has at least a couple of screws or the panel would come off when you pull the door closed. have a look near the handle part if the handle is or looks seperate try bottom of it and/or they might be covered with a blank off on it or near it . if you find this let me know.joe

To just replace the mirror glass there are a few different styles, but they all pull off. I suggest you wear gloves and glasses. Get a grip behing the glass and pull out. You should see a round circular bracket in the center. The new mirror just snaps into the bracket. Center new mirror and push evenly in the center of glass until it snaps into place. Dont push in by holding the edges, you'll break it. If you don't see the circle or it comes off with the glass it was too damaged for just glass. Power or manual mirros differ inside, but the mirror replacement is the same. If you mean the entire mirror only, remove door panel. Lower window, remove electrical connector if power, remove 3 bolts attaching mirror to door. Remove.
There are screws that hold the door panel on. They are typically located behind the small round plastic covers. If you look at the bottom of the door handle, you will see them. Also on the door lever, there might be a screw. After removing all of the screws, take a flat head screw driver, and gently pry up the panel. There are plastic clips that hold the panel securely to the door. Doing this will pop them out one at a time. Once the door panel is loose, lift it up, and it should come right out. Be sure to disconnect any wiring harness connectors before fully removing.
