This is how the glass shops in my area do it. Clean all the glass out of the mirror carefully. Don't want stitchs. Clean all the old glue off with a knife or razor blade and wash it with window cleaner. Wash the back of the new mirror as well with window cleaner. Put a liberal coat of silicone adhesive on the back of the new mirror and press it into place. Place a small block of wood or plastic on the mirror face and tape it on with black electrical tape. Stretch the tape as you wrap it around, make about 2 complete wraps. Do this on the inside and outside of the new mirror and leave it for 24 hours. Then you simply remove the tape and blocks and nobody will know the difference. Hope this helps. You could also get a auto glass shop to do it. It's not especially expensive. Hope this helps.
if you make a trip to the salvage yard you get to rip a pannel apart finding all the clips and hooks and it's free \
then remove the mirror and di it the right way on your car now that you know the location of all the screws just remember that the manule window handle can be uncliped by running a rag between the door skin and the handle base
look at the back side there is a circle of little teeth if some of them are broken and or missing you need a new replacement mirror,not the whole mechanical partthat bolts to the door.if no teeth are broken or missing then press the mirror back in place with the palm of your hand.carefully it can crack.hope this helped.
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
to replace the mirror you need to take the door panel out there is two or more screws after that you need to pull hard to separate the panel from the door the panel clips will give some resistance but dont be afraid after that the mirror is easy
You need to put on a pair of gloves, and safety glasses. (Safety First !) Prise off the broken mirror from the plastic base that it is stuck too.
Give the plastic a clean with nail polish remover or similar.
Peel off the backing on new mirror glass, and carefully stick it on.
need to know if it is 4 door or 2 door. very easy go to junk yard to find replacement you have to snap out the inside panel .ther is also a screw on the inside in the corner that will remove the plate to the mirror. junk yard person will show you.
You will need to remove the triangular panel on the inside of the door on the opposite side of the broken mirror. Once you remove the panel, you will see the retaining bolts holding the mirror in place. Once you remove the bolts, the mirror can then be pulled out from the outside. Reverse the procedure to reinstall the new mirror.
