Help to Replace Driver AND Passenger Exterior Mirrors 02 Impala

I am looking for VERY detailed instructions on how to replace both of the exterior mirrors on my 2002 Chevy Impala. I am pretty handy with some tools and would really like to do this myself, (to give my hubby a break). If anyone can give me very clear directions to complete this task, I would really appreciate it! Thanks!!!

I used google to do a search for this and typed in "instructions replace side mirror". There is a guide on e-bay that pops right up and it gives you pretty detailed instructions. They are not vehicle specific but should give you all the information that you need. The web page says How to replace a broken side mirror on your car-associated content. I hope this helps, it looked like it had plenty of great information.

My side mirros dont work


The exterior mirrors:
  • are controlled by power controls on the LH front door trim panel.
  • are of a foldaway design.
  • may contain turn signal indicators.
  • may be heated when the heated back window glass is activated.
  • may have a programmable recall memory option.
Driver Seat Module
The power driver seat and power exterior mirrors are controlled by the driver seat module (DSM) only when the vehicle is equipped with the programmable/recall memory option.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Power Exterior Mirror Operation
The power exterior mirrors are controlled by the DSM and are operational all the time, whether the ignition switch is on or off. Using the power exterior mirror switch, the driver can adjust the driver and passenger exterior mirrors four ways.

I have a replacement mirror for the passenger exterior for a 2008 impala. can you give me step by step details on putting it on


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.
