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

SOURCE: Replace mirror assembly on driverside

The interior door panel will need to be removed. Pull all visual screws from the panel, once the screws are removed, pry the panel away from the door. keep in mind the handle linkage will need to be removed, it will be self explanatory when disassembled. Once the panel is removed, use a 10mm socket to unscrew the mirror from the door pillar and replace.

Hello, yes the glass can be replaced. you will need to see your local GM dealer for the glass. real simple to replace.





  • Carefully push the outside rearview mirror face on the inner edge, near the front door window glass, to allow access.
  • Insert a large flat-bladed screwdriver in the slot between mirror lens and the mounting base.
  • Grasp the mirror face firmly and pull it from the mirror body.

  • Using the palm of your gloved hand, press firmly on the center of the glass until the case seats onto the motor.
  • The mirror will make a snapping noise when properly seated.
  • Inspect the mirror for proper operation.

    is it an aero mirror with no arms?
    Or a trailer tow mirror with arms?
    The glass is repalceable. It is mounted on a center post with a ball on it. The mirror has a socket on the back center.
    It also has 2 jack srews (plastic) that go into the tiny motors that move the mirror. You can push and pull on the glass and they will retchet, it won't hurt them.

    You have to pop the mirror off the ball.

    It helps to heat the socket with a hair dryer to put the new one on.
