Is it possible there is a connector beneath the shield casing? I would take it back and have them check you got the right one for your car. You may have to pull the door panel off to get to the connector for your old mirror.

SOURCE: replace rear turn signal bulb on 2007 H3 - driver side

1st::Unscrew the 2 screws that hold the light in.
2nd::Slide your hand behind the light and pull the light towards you. Make sure that you pull it straight, as if the h3 was driving away from you, so you dont break the two pins that are holding the light in...PULL ONE PIN AT A TIME!!!

Dont pull it to far away from the hummer as there are wires attached that need to stay attached.

3rd::turn the back of the bulb to unlock it from the lens...
4th:: slide the bulb out and remove thebulb by pulling it straight out.
5th::put the new bulb in, lock it back into the lens, then insert it back where you got it from,...

MAKE SURE you move the wires out of the way when you put the lens back in...they will get in the way and can be damaged.

SOURCE: how to remove and repalce vw golf wing mirror

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you can remove the bolts securing the mirror to the door.

How to replace rear view mirror


Instructions
1


Disconnect your negative battery cable, if your Ford Focus has power side mirrors. If it has manual side mirrors, disconnecting the battery is unnecessary.

2


Pry off the wing mirror's inside sail panel (shaped like a triangle). Insert a trim panel tool between the door skin and the plastic panel to pry it off.





3


Carefully pull the sail panel away, minding the wiring if the mirror is power-operated. Unplug the electrical harness and set the panel aside.

4


Open the door and hold the outside part of the wing mirror steady. Remove the mounting bolt with a socket wrench, and then remove the mirror screw with a Phillips screwdriver (the mirror bolt and screw is visible with the panel removed).

5


Pull the wing mirror assembly from its mount (from the outside). Insert the replacement mirror assembly in place; tighten the bolt and the screw.

6


Attach the wiring connection to the replacement mirror. Position the sail panel in place and push it against the door to snap it back on.

How to replace rearview mirrors on yukon 1996


The replacement of outside rearview mirrors is straight-forward and can be done in an hour or so. If you need new power mirrors, first shop with local body parts suppliers in your area. The after-market mirrors are nearly identical and can be purchased for about $20-$30 per side. Remove the plastic triangular cover over the inside of the mirror by lifting up at base and then release clip at the top which is an upward motion off of a slot in the rear of the triangle. Then pull out the foam insulation carefully. The 3 nuts are 10mm and a long scket works best. For the one at the very front, you will have to use an open end wrench to loosen the nut. There is not much room for a socket. Be carefull to not drop the nuts down the inside of the door, because you don't want to remove the door panel and then the inner metal panel to get them out. If you lose them, buy new ones or replace with proper treaded ones in your garage. After the three nuts are off you need to disconect the wiring. Stop here and make sure you have enough slack in the wiring to be able to hold the female end securely, while you refit your new mirror. I took a piece of wire an dwrapped it around the female end to keep it within reach to re-attach the wiring after the nuts are tightened. Then just replace your foam insulation, and install the triangular cover and you're all set.

Custom Rear view mirror


Hiya...ALL factory-installed rearview mirrors are installed with different wires due to options.
About 6 different rearview mirrors are installed with those options such as On-Star, light, compass, and those features which use different wires....THIS CANNOT be modified with different rearview mirror....**for example, the Equinox owner attempt to pull out a factory-installed base rearview mirror and put in different one that has compass/temperature built into the rearview mirror**

However, the wires are located inside the front headliner which requires removing the sunvisor (and possible removal of interior plastic trim part at the left/right ends of the windshield) prior to pull the headliner down, and a small metal philips or torx screw is used to secure the rearview mirror onto the bracket glued to the windshield.

The best solution is to leave the original factory-installed rearview mirror in place.
