No you do not, there will be a small plastic cover over the door mounted tweeter.

Squeeze it with your fingers and you should be able to pop it right off.

There are two screws on the speaker and the others should be visible on removal of the speaker itself.

I suggest you bring a soldering iron or a pair of wire cutters because the speaker wiring is soldered on the speaker and the speaker will not fall back through the speaker frame.

Is there a step by step instruction on how to change the left side mirror on my Mitsubishi Endeavor 04 ? thank you


Maybe try alldata.com, because on my online resource for the 2004 Mitsubishi Endeavor, there is no information on body work.

One could get the part from the salvage yard and look for the bolts like one would do for a GM car

One may have to remove some plastic parts to get at the fasteners.

Also, if there are cables for moving the mirror from the inside, then that should be considered, as well.

Also, if the mirror is heated, that should be considered.

(I got this off of Wiki Answers)
Very easily. Open the door, find two rubber circular boots right behind the
mirror. Take them off to expose the 2 bolts that hold the mirror on. Take the
bolts out and unplug the wire. Reverse these steps to install, hole this
helps...

There are three small bolts holding the driver's side mirror on. Two can be
accessed by opening door and removing the two circular rubber boots seen on the
upper end of the door . To access the third bolt you will need to remove the
door panel. you will need a forked driver to help remove the door panel. It can
be bought at any auto parts store. It has a flat Y shaped head that can be
inserted along the lateral and bottom edge of the door panel to pop it way from
the door frame. There are three screws holding the door panel on. Two under the
door handle and one behind the door latch. Then the door lifts up and off. Make
sure you have the window down before you take the panel off because you cannot
access the third bolt unless it is. You will have to unplug the electrical
connects that power the controls on the door handle to completely remove the
door panel. After you remove the panel there will be a hole in the upper right
hand door frame, possibly covered by a black patch. Beneath this is the third
bolt. you will also need to disconnect the light from inside the door frame
before you will be able pull the mirror off. There is a large rubber boot oval
shaped that you can pull out and you will see the electrical connection for the
mirror inside the hole on the right.


Good luck on this repair.

Want to repair the drivers side view mirror. How do I remove the speaker frame that is on the inside across from the mirror?


It was really not hard at all. First you have to remove two phillips head screws from behind the door handle and four more from around the outer surface of the door panel. Then I took a flat nail remover bar (very handy when you have nails driven into wood that you want to remove) and slipped it between the bottom edges of the door panel and located/popped aloose the securing plastic inserts around the outer edges. Then with gentle force lifted the door panel from the bottom upward to pop aloose the upper inserts. Then you have to gently lift up the left upper portion nearest the window (which should be lowered) that has the door lock plunger comming through it, from the door frame. When this is done, the one screw that secures the speaker frame is exposed. Once the screw is removed the speaker frame will slide to the left and off of the door thereby exposing the four mirror securing nuts. One of the nuts is located behind a round piece of glued on clear plastic. Once the mirror is removed and repaired/replaced just reverse the process above to reattach the speaker frame and door panel. Care needs to be taken when getting the door lock plunger and door handle reinserted into the door panel then carefully locating the plastic insert tips with the holes in the door frame. You can gently shove the inserts into their respective holes with the heel of your hand or fist and reattach with the six screws.

Repair a side mirror on a car


1. Pop off the triangular piece that is just cosmetic on the upper flat part of the mirror where it is attached to the van.
2. Under this piece are two visible bolts which you will need a Torx driver to remove.

3. Open the passenger door all the way open and remove the 3rd bolt, which is exposed from the outside of the car.
4. Expose the wiring harness plug by doing the following:
a. Pull off the door weatherstripping along the top of the door and on the pillar (the part of the car to the left of the windshield) Do not completely remove the weatherstip - simply pull it away enough to execute the next step.

b. Remove the plastic pillar cover: it simply snaps in. Pull hard and it will pop off
c. Lift up the plastic cover over the speaker on top of the dashboard. This piece goes all the way across the dashboard. Simply lift it up enough to get your hands underneath it. There is no need to free it from the passenger side.

d. Follow the mirror wiring harness around the rear of the speaker (the side nearest the engine) and unplug it from the female connector at the right-rear of the speaker. There may be a wire clip at the left-rear of the speaker that you will need to get the wire out of.
5. Unplug the wire, remove the mirror, replace the mirror, reinstall everything
