SOURCE: help putting on 2008 exterior mirror

you have to take the door panel off on the inside. On your you probably have electric windows so unplug them. and anything else that keeps you from taking the panel off. Then remove the paper seal .Oh yeah before you start roll the door glass down ok now you will see two access holes on the inside part of the door. I believe it takes a 10 mm socket, 1/4 in drive ratchet and extension . take it off replace and put it all back just as you took it apart.
God Bless Greg

SOURCE: passenger side mirror

If you need to replace the entire mirror - it's a little involved. First you need to take the upper extension panel off from behind the mirror (black triangle) - just pull it of starting at the top. It will snap back on later. Next - remove the different screws holding the door panel in place (not the ones behind the mirror yet!) One is under the handle (pull it out and pull out the filler panel - small plastic thing that has a hole to pry it out). Then take off the rear red light - also pops off - and remove that screw. Finally - pick up the rubber filler where your fingers pull the door shut and remove these torx bolts.

Now is the tricky part. Snapp off the entire interior panel. It will pop off - but very difficult. It will sound like it is breaking! Start at the outer bottom corner - and use a door panel remover tool - check Amazon or E-bay - to keep from breaking things. Pull it out from all around the bottom and sides and then lift it up over the door lock. It good to have a friend help here. The panel will still be held on by a cable - that is your door release - leave it alone and let the panel hang by it (or better, put a box under it to rest on).

Now...remove the three bolts holding the mirror on - have a friend help hold the mirror while you do this or it will scratch your new car! Since the inner panel is off - you can also disonnect the mirror plus and remove it. It sounds silly - but the only reason to remove the door panel is to unplug it!

Get you new mirror and reverse the steps.

If you are just replacing the glass (non-heated) - get a replacement from the dealer. Adjust the mirror all the way to the inside and reach behind and pop it off. CAREFUL - put tape over the entire glass as it will likely break even more! Remove your connectors if heated - and replace (and reconnect) with your new glass. It just pops back on!

Replacing glass is easy - just be careful of cheap imitations on e-abay). And never use cheap flat glass on the passenger side! The DOT has special requirements for mirror glass - buy it from gmpartsdirect.com or your local dealer.

SOURCE: i have a replacement mirror

I'm going to assume the 2008 is similar to my 2006. The mirror is attached to the door with (3) 10mm nuts behind the triangle shaped interior trim piece that pops off easily with a screwdriver. If you have electric mirrors, the door panel has to come off to unplug the wiring harness from the mirror. There are three T30 torx screws and a 7mm bolt that need to be removed first...two torx bolts are under the rubber pad in the door grab well and the other is under the plastic trim piece behind the interior door handle. The 7 mm screw is behind the door reflector. Once the torx bolts and 7mm bolt is removed, pry the door panel at the bottom (there is a slot for this) and release the plastic connectors around the panel's edge...some effort is required to release them.

SOURCE: replace passenger side mirror on 2008 Impala

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

How to remove and replace RIGHT HAND sun visor With lighted mirror on 2004 venture van ?


Remove the screws from the sunshade mounting plate. Pull downwards in order to disengage the sunshade from the roof. Pull down the sunshade in order to access the electrical connectors, if equipped with a vanity mirror. Disconnect the electrical connections from the sunshade, if equipped with a vanity mirror.
Important: Do not rotate the sunshade on shaft. Doing so may cause the sunshade to become mis-aligned and not properly retained.
Remove the sunshade from the roof.

How do I replace light bulb on the sun visor vanity mirror on 2002 legacy/ liberty subaru


I'm not sure you can. Talk to a Subaru parts guy at a dealership. What I can tell you for sure is this: I replaced the passenger side visor on a '94 Legacy Lsi that was torn off when the car was stolen and driven from WV to FL. I couldn't find a used one and the insurance company wound up paying 135 bux for an original equipment replacement. Good luck. . .

How can I repair the vanity and rear view mirrors?


On most models the vanity and mirror lights are on a different circuit from the interior lights.
A mechanic would check for power at the lights then at the fuse.
