You can blame it on your significant other, blame it on the kids or blame it on someone hitting it in the crowded parking lot. Whatever the reason, the side view mirror on your car is broken, missing or hanging by a thread. It's not that hard to replace. With a few common household tools, you can replace it yourself in less than 30 minutes. Forget the body shop or service station; they're going to charge you more in labor than you paid for the part online.
How to Install Side View Mirrors 1.Open the door wide and roll the window all the way down so you don't damage it. 2.Locate the plastic molding on the opposite side of the rear view mirror at the very front corner of the door's window. It'll probably be black plastic triangular-shaped molding, but it may have the same hue as the interior of the vehicle. 3.Gently but firmly pry that triangular molding off with the screwdriver. It's only snapped into place and there's usually a small ridge or lip that seats down into the window cavity. This ridge/lip should be no more than a quarter of an inch into the cavity. Pry it from a couple of spots until it comes free. 4.Locate the wire harness and unplug the mirror if it is an electric-powered mirror.5.Locate the three nuts inside the cavity of the door. There may be some foam plugs or insulation you'll need to move out of the way, but you can replace them after you install the new mirror. 6.Remove the nuts with the ratchet, extension and appropriate-sized socket. Be careful not to drop them into the door cavity. 7.Remove the old mirror and install the new one. 8.Tighten all three nuts. Plug the mirror into the harness if it is a powered one and test it before you close everything upThank you for using FixYa hope this will help your problem and don't forgetto rate me.thanks,Josefina
There is a triangular piece of plastic inside the door opposite the mirror. You remove the panel and you'll see 2 bolts. Remove the bolts and unplug the wire connector (if you have electric rear view mirrors) and the mirror will come right off. Installation is reverse.
You will have to remove the door panel, behind the triangle piece on the top right of the drivers side door panel you will see 3 nuts which hold the mirror in place. Remove the nuts and the mirror should come right off the door. Same on the passenger side.
You have to CAREFULLY ( probably wise to wear safety goggles ) and with a flat blade screwdriver, pry out ALL the broken mirror glass wearing gloves. Now with the 2 adhesive strips, align mirror glass and adhere to base. Hope this helps
You need to take of the door panel so you can get to the attaching hardware to remove to old one. Do not cut the wires until you look inside to see if there is a plug to connect to the new mirror. the broken wires you are talking about will come off with the old mirror. I hope this will help you.
