Question about 1997 Ford Expedition
How do i get the door panel off of my 97 expo so i can replace the side mirror?
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!

You probably don't need to pull the door panel. On the outside of the mirror is a plastic trim cover. Use a trim stick to remove it to allow access to the screws holding the mirror in. Don't unhook them yet. On the inside, remove the plastic trim over the door/windshield pillar - first removing any grab handles that may be there. You don't say if this is a power mirror. If not, then that should do it. If it is, you may need to lift the dash cover up slightly with the trim stick to gain access to any electrical hookups.
Trim stick = soft tool for use in removing plastic pieces without messing them up.
