How to replace glass in Driver side rear view mirror?


Not sure of the X5 but on the M3 the mirrored glass portion of the driver side view mirror just "popped" onto the motor carrier in the housing. It was a little nerve racking removing and replacing the glass (my motor had died) but with care its possible. Suggest going to RealOEM.com site and enter vehicle vin information then go to vehicle trim and then outside mirror for details of assembly

My door handle from inside of passenger side is broke. How do I get the panel off?


Park the vehicle on level ground and have good lighting available. Open door all the way. Start with a pick, pocket knife or very small slot screw driver. Practically all modern vehicles utilize plastic snaps to secure the perimeter of a door panel. However, you will find that two large screws will hold the door panel on around the "door handle/arm rest" as this is where we pull the door closed....so it needs extra securing. If you look on the bottom portion of the handle, you will see either two access holes pointing up at a 35 degree angle...or two "plugs" which act as "appearance covers" hiding the actual holes. Carefully pop these out. Shine your flash light up the hole and identify the type of fastener. ( it i'll be a large Phillips # 3.....or a torx type fitting) remove these. Now, the other places to look for fasteners you remove from "your side of the door" are at the door handle "lever" remove the cover directly behind this lever. You might find this fastener also has a "beauty cover" remove it and the screw. next, top corner up by the outside mirror. you will have a speaker or a cover there that serves as the cover for the screws that mount the outside mirror. remove the cover. if you see no fasteners or covers, it likely pops off. Just be slow and careful. along with the big screws at the door handle/arm rest, there may be another fastener at the top of the handle. With all of these removed and if you see no fasteners around the bottom of the door...wedge your fingers along the bottom and pull straight out. You will be "unsnapping" the plastic fasteners at the bottom and sides of door. Now you will have a door panel that is loose at the bottom and away from the door frame itself. Barring any trim thats not part of the door panel, you should be able to raise the door panel strait up^^^ and free it from the top of the door. Remember, if its not coming off in a reasonable manner, something is still connected. Once the panel is free, sitting on the edge of the seat, put the door panel in your lap and disconnect the electrical connections, door lever rod...etcetera.....

Write me back and let me know how you did

How to replace passenger side mirror on 2007 Camry


To remove mirror pry off inside triangle panel(black) which exposes 3 nuts which are removed with socket wrench. Detach wire harness and pull out mirror assembly. To replace insert new mirror screws thru assigned holes and reconnect wire harness and tighten nuts to snug. Push inside triangle panel back into place and you're done! It's that easy.

Need instructions to replace side mirror on 2005 Ford F-150 4x4 pick up. This is glass mirror only. Thank you.


I just now did mine! Remove the little door behind the door handle and remove these two screws. Remove the two screws at the bottom. Pop the pad off were the window switch is and there is a screw there too. remove the speaker in the door. there is a piece of rubber there to remove also. Pop the two round things out that you screw the speakers to at the bottom. Then lift the door panel straight up. Be gentle and don't break the tabs off> good luck

Driver side mirror loose how can i tighten it


Most mirrors have a removable cover just on the inside of the door. If you look closely where the mirror meets the door on the inside should be a snap in place cover or three screw holes with snap in covers that you remove and then use a screwdriver or small socket wrench to tighten the screws or bolts.

Replacing driver's side mirror on a 1994 Chevy Lumina sedan


There are screws that hold the door panel on. They are typically located behind the small round plastic covers. If you look at the bottom of the door handle, you will see them. Also on the door lever, there might be a screw. After removing all of the screws, take a flat head screw driver, and gently pry up the panel. There are plastic clips that hold the panel securely to the door. Doing this will pop them out one at a time. Once the door panel is loose, lift it up, and it should come right out. Be sure to disconnect any wiring harness connectors before fully removing.

How to remove front door panel on volvo s60 t5 2002 driver side


Pop the grab handle cover off, two different styles.

1. With a slot under the grab handle, take a small screw driver off and gently push up, it should just pop out.

2. Simple cover that can be separated with a bone tool or similar so you don't chip the cover piece.

Behind that you will find two Torx 25 screws, Take those out.

Around the edge of the panel should be around 8 plastic rivet type of thing.

Again...two different styles.

1. With center pins that blend in perfectly with the rivet. Should be about 3/32nds diameter. Push the center in and the rivet deals should pop out. Be sure not to lose the center piece...easy to lose.

2. Same deal but with a larger center pin.

Take the plastic triangle piece near the upper right hand area as facing the panel.

Pull bottom away from door and up to release from top section of door.

Careful removing the cable for the door lock release, and remove the connectors from the tweeter and driver's door module.
