Driver's side mirror replacement

My driver's side mirror has popped off and I'm sick of trying to keep it on with tape. Now I can afford to fix it by I'm also sick of the mechanics here scamming money out of me.
So is it possible to do it myself? I've found replacements all over the interenet, and I saw that there's a little panel next to it on the inside of the door where the lever is (it's a manual mirror) and i took that off and looked around, but I don't know how to dis-/reconnect the cable between the lever and the mirror.
Could someone possibly explain this? Thanks

Mt drivers side wing mirror glass has popped out,


If the glass broke when it fell out any windshield repair shop can make and install a new mirror. If it didn't break go to the hardware store and get a squeeze tube of bathtub silicone sealer and a roll of black electrical tape if you don't have any. Run a bead of silicone around the edge of the mirror back and a few dots in the center. Stay in about a 1/2 inch so it wont bleed out when you press it on. Using a couple of blocks of wood or plastic or anything non-metallic on the mirror face, make 2 or 3 wraps around the mirror and mirror bracket with the black tape. Stretch the tape as you wrap to put some tension on it but not real tight, just snug. Do this on both ends of the mirror and leave it for a day to let the silicon set up and cure. Then remove the tape and shims and you shouldn't have any more problems with that mirror. Hope this helps.

How to I replace an electric drivers side mirror on a Ford Focus


Go to a breakers yard or ford, you will have to unscrew & pull off the interior cap on the insde to udo the mirror whole unit & pop the glass out of the old unit by pulling carefully, then disconnect the motor & wiring, then re-fit as dismantled.
Hope this helps, If you can't do it yourself then buy the mirror & take it to a decent garage as they are not hard to replace & the dealership will charge twice as much !
Hope this helps !

Help...i am trying to install a new "glass" only driver's side mirror on my 2004 prius


To replace the mirror glass you need a small tube of bathtub silicon, some black tape and a couple of wooden blocks or shims. Clean the back of the mirror with glass cleaner first and put a good bead of silicon all the way around the back of the mirror about half an inch from the edge. Push it in place and using the shims tape it in place.Stretch the tape as you put it on to keep pressure on the mirror and to make a good bond with the silicon. Leave it for 24 hours and then remove the tape. Hope this helps.

R&R mirror itself on Driver's side door


On the Back of the mirror in the middle is a big plastic ring that is a pressure fitting you should be able to just pop the old one out and put the new one in. If you have to replace the whole assembly it's easy if you look at the inside of the door rigth where the mirror is attached there is a triangle piece of plastic you can just pop that off and there will be three bolts in side to remove the mirror if you have there should be some foam protecting the electrical wires inside that just comes out. Good Luck.
