Did it come that way from the factory? If so, you have a brokem wire in between the door and the body where the door attaches to the body. Comes from use. Nothing new. Otherwise mirror is defective. Check for broken wires first. This also causes windows and seats/doorlocks not to work. You'd be surprised how many wires you find broken or shortd out completely. Can be stripped and connected with red wire connectors from auto parts store.

SOURCE: how to replace Inside Rear View Mirror on 2000

Hello, to replace the rear mirror, try the following:

1. Roll the passenger side door window all the way down. Turn off the ignition and remove the keys.


2. Gently pry the window control panel from the arm rest with the pry tool or screwdriver starting at the bottom of the panel. Flip it over and unplug all the wire harness outlets from it. Set the panel aside.

3. Locate and remove the two panel door plugs near the arm rest concealing the two screws and remove the screws with the Phillips head screwdriver.

4. Remove the door panel retainer plugs along the edge of the door by pressing in the middle of the plug to unlock it and removing the plug.


5. Detach the mounting triangle from the upper inside door panel covering the side-view mirror.

6. Remove the door panel by lifting outward and then upward. Disconnect the speaker wire harness from the underside of the door panel and set the door panel aside.

7. Locate and disconnect the mirror wire harness.

8. Pull back the foam insulation from the inside panel covering the side-view mirror.

9. Unscrew the three mounting nuts from the mirror using the ratchet, extension and a socket. Do not drop the nuts into the door cavity.

10. Pry the mirror gently away from the outside of the door.

11. Install the new mirror and replace the mounting nuts on the mirror studs and tighten with the ratchet, socket, and extension. Plug the mirror wire harness back in. Replace the foam insulation. Replace the mounting triangle.


12. Replace the door panel by reversing the procedure. Start by plugging in the speaker wire first.


Thanks

Is Window tinting legal in san diego?


It is legal to tint car windows in San Diego if vehicle has dual side mirrors. Windshields cannot have after-market tinting. If the rear window (rear windshield) receives aftermarket tint, the vehicle must have exterior rear view mirrors on both the left and right sides of the vehicle.


If you want more information, You can talk to window tinting San Diego experts.

Whats legal and whats not legal in window tinting


It's not so much about where you live for the amount of tint possible,but the most tint allowed in other locations.
You may travel and may run into problems elsewhere with the level of tint.

Rear windows can be fully tinted.....right up to total blockage of light.
Front tint is another story.
You must be able to see the driver EASILY from a distance.
.......and the driver must be able to see out of the rear view side mirrors AT NIGHT.

Trying to install window tint on the upper portion of the front windshield, but am not able to tell how the rear view mirror comes off. Tried to find a set screw, but could not locate one.


You'll find it's bonded "glued" to the glass, if you try to pull it off it will probably crack the screen as it is laminated and each layer is only 2mm thick or so.
Your best solution would be cutting the tint to size and cutting around the mount putting the split above the mirror mount. As you would cut wall paper around a light switch in a cross then trim to size with a sharp blade.
