First, after receiving an email from FixYa about my "Ford 1992 Ranger Problem" which was not my query at all, as the question was titled
"F150 and F250 Mirror Compatibility"
, I am asked for money for the answer. Then they ask me what the solution is, so they can sell it to some one else. Why would I pay someone when they can't even get the question right. Incidentally, the solution was to ask someone competent.

Disconnect your negative battery cable, if your Ford Focus has power side mirrors. If it has manual side mirrors, disconnecting the battery is unnecessary.
Pry off the wing mirror's inside sail panel (shaped like a triangle). Insert a trim panel tool between the door skin and the plastic panel to pry it off.
Carefully pull the sail panel away, minding the wiring if the mirror is power-operated. Unplug the electrical harness and set the panel aside.
Open the door and hold the outside part of the wing mirror steady. Remove the mounting bolt with a socket wrench, and then remove the mirror screw with a Phillips screwdriver (the mirror bolt and screw is visible with the panel removed).
Pull the wing mirror assembly from its mount (from the outside). Insert the replacement mirror assembly in place; tighten the bolt and the screw.
Attach the wiring connection to the replacement mirror. Position the sail panel in place and push it against the door to snap it back on.
Take your door panel off and up there where the mirror is the are 3 holes and back in them hole are the bolts that hold on the mirror,but first disconnect the power wire that go to the mirror and then take them 3 10 MM bolts out and you will have the mirror in your hands.
The door panel must be removed to get to the wiring. On a 04 250 you need to: pop off the moulding covering the mirror mounting nuts. Pry the window switch plate forward then up to disconnect it, then unplug it . Rmove the screw behind the switch plate and behind the reflector. Push up on the door panel to remove it.
