SOURCE: removing door panel drivers side to connect mirror wiring behind this panel

You'll need to 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. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door

SOURCE: How do remove drivers side door panel

First you need to remove the door handle and window crank by pushing back the ring and releasing the handles. Also the arm rest will have screws into the steel door frame that must be removed. The panel itself has plastic snaps that are pushed into holes in the doors steel frame. The trick is to slide a pry bar or even two is better, one on ether side of the clip and force the pin out. You need to be patent and do one at a time. The door panels are made of a less than hard strong material and will brake apart easily especially if they are older. The clips go all the way around the lower three sides and the top will lift off the sill.

yes... you'll need to 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 can access the bolts holding the mirror on and disconnect the wiring harness as well..

How to replace passenger side mirror motor on 2010 tahoe


You replace the entire assembly. The motors are behind the mirror itself. You remove the small triangle piece of trim on the inside (may be part of the entire door panel in which case the door panel must be removed) then remove the three nuts holding the mirror on and unplug the harness.

Replacement for passager mirror for 2005 pontiac grand prix


Hello,

To replace the mirror of your car all you have to do is follow the process below,

  1. Remove the plastic shards of mirror lens from the mirror shell,
  2. If any of the shards are still stuck to the mirror, pull them off the motor and discard them,
  3. Sweep any small shards out of the shell with a vacuum cleaner,
  4. Place the new mirror lens into the mirror shell, the lens has a small metal bracket on the back of it that fits over the motor.
  5. The tight fit of the mirror in the shell forces the bracket to line up with the motor.
  6. Push the mirror bracket onto the motor by pushing on the center of the mirror lens with your hand. You will feel the bracket snap into place.
But if you want to remove the entire mirror, then you will have to follow the steps below for the DIY process:

  1. To replace the outside mirror, the door panel needs be taken off to get to the retaining nuts and the wiring.
  2. You will need a few common tools, Phillips screwdriver, flat head screwdriver, and a 10mm socket and ratchet. No special tools are required.
  3. Remove the Phillips screws located in the arm rest.
  4. Remove the screw in the door handle.
  5. Remove any screws that may be located around the circumference of the door panel.
  6. Use the common screwdriver and insert it in between the door panel and the door and pry out the trim fasteners around the circumference of the door panel.
  7. These trim fasteners are plastic plugs with serrated edges on the shank and pushed into holes on the door. Once these are removed, lift the bottom of the door panel straight up to unlatch the panel from the top horizontal ledge.
  8. If the vehicle happens to be a Ford, it uses downward facing hooks on the door panel that hook into the door. Simply lift straight up to remove the hooks.
  9. Bring the door panel just far enough to remove the door handle rods if necessary.
  10. Disconnect the power window electrical connectors. Remove the lower door panel's marker light connector.
  11. Disconnect the power outside-mirror electrical connector and then using the 10mm socket, remove the three retaining nuts on the backside of the outside mirror.
  12. Withdraw the mirror and studs from the door.
  13. Install the electrical connector for the new mirror through the opening in the door and line up the studs on the mirror with the holes in the door and push it through.
  14. Install the nuts on the backside. Connect the electrical connector.
  15. Hold the door panel close to the door and connect all the electrical connectors.
  16. Tip the bottom of the door panel outward slightly to attach the top curved surface to the horizontal channel.
  17. Lower the bottom of the door panel and line up the trim fasteners with the holes in the door. Once lined up, push them into the holes to hook the door panel.
  18. Replace all the screws in reverse order of removal.
Take care.

Side View Mirror Installation instructions needed


For a 2005 Honda Pilot, I am a complete Amateur and I had no problem installing this mirror.

1) Lower the window, and only remove the Interior MIRROR panel, NOT the entire DOOR Panel, as some sites my recommend.
2) Once the Interior Panel is removed, the power cable is attached to the mirror, remove this cable.
3) There are 3 Bolts that are BLACK (atleast in my vehicle) that need to be removed.
3) Once the bolts are removed, the mirror should come off easily.
4) Place the new mirror in place of the old one and secure all three bolts, and then secure the power cable.
5) Then place the interior panel back.

That is it!

If the vehicle is indeed a 2004 c-class, then you'll need to take off the door panel to replace the entire mirror assembly. There is a wire that runs from the mirror to the door control module.

Replacing passenger side mirror


If you are replacing the entire mirror assembly you have to remove the door panel.

First remove the switch plate by prying upward at the rear of the switch plate and unhook the connectors. Then remove the two armrest screws. The door panel then has to be pryed away from the door to release the clips. They don't give up easily so yo may have to force it a bit. Once the clips are loose pull up on the panel to remove it from the window reveal molding. The mirror is held on with three 10mm nuts. remove those and unhook the wiring from in the door. Install is reverse of removal.

Good Luck
