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

Yes, you have to remove the door panel.

Remove the 2 plastic protectors on the front edge, and remove the 2 brass colored screws. Next, remove the push pins from the latch side. Push in, and pull out the whole thing. Next, under the armrest, remove the screw. Lift up the power windoe control, being careful to not break the plastic retainer tab. Remove the screw under the window control. Starting at the bottom, pull out the panel, and, when all of the clips are loose, pull the panel straight up. It is best to do this with the door panel as warm as possible, like in a heated garage. Doing this outside in the cold will break all of the plastic retainer clips; they are quite brittle whn cold.

I hope this helps

Thanks for choosing FIxYa for assistance. A FIxYa rating (4 blue diamonds) would be greatly appreciated.

Side mirror is leaking on floorboard every time it rain.s


you need to remove the door panel as the bolts holding on the mirror are on the inside. roll down the window.,as the door panel has to come up and out. This is easier done with the window down especially for reinstallation of the door panel. Remove the power window switch assembly ,handle, screws,and the clips that hold on the door panel.you need a flat pry tool for the clips.they pop out of the holes in the door.once the panel is off,the plug for the mirror and the nuts are removed.the new mirror and seal is replaced and the door panel re attached.

    You'll have to replace the entire assembly if you're missing the mounting piece that the mirrors sit on inside the housing... You'll need to remove the door panel in order to remove the panel that's right beside the mirror on the inside of the door and remove the 3 bolts holding the mirror down assembly down....

    I need to replace passenger side mirror on 97 ford expedition


    Both above answers are not right... I just replaced the Pass side power mirror assembly on my 97 Expedition. No heat, no directional.
    The inside door panel must come off.
    1. pry off interior triangular plastic trim piece inside of door at mirror area. Remove door panel screw at this area.
    2. Pry off power window switch panel and remove door panel screw at this area.
    3.Remove interior door light cover and remove screw at this area.
    4. Remove plastic cover at door handle.
    5. The interior door panel can now be lifted up to release it from it's fasteners.
    6. Disconnect light and push power window switch assembly through the door panel and it can be set aside.
    7. Disconnect mirror power at coupler.
    8 Loosen three mirror mounting screws with 7/16 socket. DO NOT unscrew completely.. the will fall down the door cavity. Use a round magnet on holder to remove the screws completely.
    9.Thread electrical connection into door panel and install mirror.
    10. Smile when mirror works and drink a beer!

    Door panel removal


    I replaced the passenger side mirror on my 1998 Bonneville.
    (Thanks to VWmechanic for his helpful post re a 1997 Bonneville; my '98 was a little different.)
    First, remove the door panel, as follows:
    1. Remove hex-head screw under inside door handle.
    2. Remove 10mm screw located under armrest hand grip (to get at it, pop off the piece that covers the tiny courtesy light)
    3. Using a screwdriver, pry off the panel. It's held on by several plastic, pop-off fasteners.
    4. Remove the plastic red lock slider under the door handle. It can be pried off the wire slider.
    5. Lift up on the door panel to release the top edge. You now have access to the inside of the door.
    6. To get at the two bolts holding the mirror to the sheet metal of the fender, remove the plastic shield just under the bolt location.
    7. Remove/fasten the mirror bolts with a 10mm. I could reach the front bolt with an 8" socket extension, but had to use a 10mm open wrench on the back bolt.
