Need to buy car parts but my car was manufactured in Canada
I found a great deal on a side mirror assembly for my vehicle-2005 honda civic ex sedan 4dr automatic 1.7L etc etc- but it clearly says "fits USA built models only." I don't understand how a Canadian manufactured car is much different. How is it?

I would say that if the parts fit use them. the reason they say that is because over in europe they use diiferent levels of power for controling the cars but there is no difference between canadian and us versions.

Do you mean the turn indicator located in the mirror assembly? There is no way to replace that other than to replace the entire mirror assembly. I would be checking the wiring harness to the door before replacing the mirror. There could be a broken wire in the umbilical that goes between the body and the door.

There are 2 engines for 92 civics, so that can make ordering parts 'interesting" sometimes. Some websites that sell factory OEM parts have the option of using your vin for your vehicle to locate parts. The only problem there, is that OEM parts are more expensive Check out hondapartscheap site, from Southbay Honda for great diagrams of car parts. You can use your vin on their site for access to proper parts.
hey, I replaced a mirror on a 2002 civic lx coupe.
1) Pry off the small pastic traingular piece from the interior of your door.
2) Disconnect the wiring to the mirror
3) There will be 3 bolts that attach the mirror to the car, remove these and the mirror can be removed. To put on the new mirror just do everything in reverse
Just make sure you order the right mirror, I accidentally order the mirror for the sedan model the first time and they are not interchangable.
remove rear seat, remove round metal cover, disconnect fuel lines and wires from top of fuel pump, jack up rear of car. remove gas tank straps, lower gas tank with a jack, install is reverse.....if you need to just replace the fuel pump you don't have to remove tank you Can access from under rear seat good luck and please rate -jeff
