Replace passenger side rearview mirrow

How do I get to the screws that fasten the passenger side rearview mirrow to the door. Do I need to remove a trim piece to expose the screws.

Is there a diagram that I can copy?

Thanks

    This solution sounds to work on electric window. I am looking for the screws that will allow me to remove and replace the passenger side rearview mirrow. I understand that it has a plug arrangement for the motor in the mirrow.

    Were are the mounting screws located?

    thanks

You have to take the whole passenger door panel off. Pop off the little circle plastic screw covers and unscrew the screws. There are also 2 plastic screws that just pop out on the side of the door panel. Once you have the door panel off, you need to remove a plastic triangle piece on the inside of the door, covering the mirrors screws. It pops right off. There is a piece of foam behind that. There are 3 or 4 screws behind there that you need to remove. That should be it. You can almost get to the plastic piece covering the mirror screws without removing the door panel if you have the right tools. Try it and see first. It might save you some time. Good luck.

Hi there
The wing mirror itself will just pull off, it will hang down with adjustment cable attached to it, the screws are located behind there you should see them straight away

Good luck and kind regards

You will see that the solution above or below is not valid.

To answer your question, you have to pull the door panel completely off to access the mirror bolts; removing the top trim is not going to allow you access to the bolts for the mirror.

There is a screw under a cover just behind the door handle.
There is another screw in the door pull. remove the cup.
After you have those out. start at the bottom and pry outward. Once you have the panel clips pryed off lift up and unhook it from the window track. After that reach behind the panel and unplug the window switch from the panel.

Remove outside mirror on 2012 chevy traverse


You need a special puller for the inside door panel. Have to go to an autoparts store for it. Then you take out all the screws on the door panel. The you use the puller on the bottom and sometimes the sides to LOCATE and REMOVE the fasteners..Lift the panel up and away from the door. Careful about any wires that might be connected to switches. Unplug those if present. You will now be looking at a sheet of sound deadening material that has a tar like substance on it. You cannot really save this and it is messy. remove it and then you can see the internal door and window parts. Be careful because the parts are sharp. Long sleeves and gloves are recommended. See if you can reach in under the window and feel for the bolts. If you cannot then the window has to be removed. Locate and remove the glass retainer and remove the window. Then remove any bolts holding the window mechanical parts. Then you should be able to get to the bolts for the mirror.

Want to fix the passenger side mirrow motor for toyota sequoia 2005


You'll need to 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 can remove the bolts holding the mirror onto the door and disconnect the cables from the mirror going into the door
