SOURCE: Broken driver side mirror on 2003 Chevy Cavalier

There are screws and plastic in there. I totally ripped mine off pulling out of my narrow drive way in my apartment complex and all's it took was supper glue to repair it. note: don't squirt a lot and use rags below paint level on door...it will drizzle on down and it don't come off easy.. once its on your paint good luck getting the clue off..... i got about 90% off by using rubbing compound.....but now those areas look newer than the older paint on the door. good luke i hope you can fix it yourself'
can i get reply...thanks

SOURCE: I had a broken side

the stands should have two little studs sticking out of the top sides which are used for adjusting the mirror by the motor. If broken off the mirror has to be replaced most likely if your doing the job. A trained technician replaces thes replacement glass parts having problems as well such as you are. Get one at a wrecking yard if possible to save money for these are expensive at Chevrolet

How to replace outside side power mirrors in original housing? 2008 Ford Edge


Google replacement mirror glass for Ford Edge 08.

They make a replacement mirror glass available that uses double sticky tape. This has worked great for me. The heated function still continued to work!! In my case I replaced a scratched mirror leaving the old mirror in place. If yours is broken included is a link for a procedure to replace a broken mirror.

Confirm the dimensions before purchasing. Some car manufactures have more than one design for different model cars same year..

Use a heat gun or hair dryer to heat up the glass. This will soften the glue which holds the mirror onto actuator. Gently pry the mirror off. the actuator can then be unscrewed and removed.

How do you replace the exterior mirror glass on a 2007 chevy tahoe. I have the the replacement glass portion but not sure how to release the broken portion from the mirror motor. Thanks for any info!


i just replaced the passenger side on mine and this is what i did.

1. on the back side of the mirror housing is a half moon shaped plastic piece. gently remove that from the housing, exposing a portion of the back side of the mirror.

2. disconnect the two wires (remember rt and lf). carefully, with a pry tool, apply pressure on the center of the back side of the mirror, it will pop loose.

3. once the mirror is off there should be a round plastic piece attached to the back side of the mirror. on the passenger side there is a tab in the upper left side. lift up on the tab and slide the plastic piece down...it should slide off.

4. once you have the plastic piece off it goes on the back of the new mirror in the opposite way. you line up the four cross tabs and slide the mirror up until the tab grabs it.

5. put the mirror back in the housing by lining the circle (on back side center of mirror plate) with the center of the mirror housing. genlty apply pressure on the center of the mirror (i had to hit it firmly with the palm of my hand) unitl it snaps into place.

6. once it snaps into place you can reconnect the two wires to the back of the mirror and install the back side plastic housing......DONE

normally, if the mirror glass is broken you can remove this clip from the back or it is still in place and only the glass is out. If the mirror glasses are jumped out the system and you lost it completed, there is a chance to get replacement from the authorized dealership (replacement mirror glasses with attached clips). After marked parts are a great way to save money, but it works not all the time.

Hi

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.

Good Luck !

How do i remove and replace the driver's side mirror?


If the metal pivot arm is not broken you can just replace the glass and plastic housing. To remove the glass you tilt the glass down towards the floor and use a wide plastic or wood bladed object to prise from behind, the glass should pop off from its clips. Remember to catch it if its not damaged. To remove the housing once the glass is out you need to look underneath the mirror unit, there you will find a small plastic bung, gently prise it out and then use a long small flat bladed screwdriver straight up inside the hole and lever towards the front of the car whilst lifting straight up on the plastic housing, this should then lift off. To replace just slot the new housing on and click into place then fit the glass back, remember to connect the wires first if it is a heated glass.
If the metal pivot arm is broken then you will find the remaining screws behind the plastic trim inside the vehicle.

Replace passenger side power mirror clearance lamp (bulb only).


If you are facing the passenger side mirror adjust the top (large) mirror so that it is turning in towards the truck as far as it will go. Then look behind the mirror in the bottom righthand corner (outside bottom corner) and you will see a silver metal clip. Take a straight head screw driver and push on that clip and the lens will pop out. Then you simply unscrew the bulb holder from the lens and replace your bulb. Good luck!
