Just bought a 2000 for focus and it needs a new passenger side mirror (black casing and all). It is a manual adjuster that has a black knob on the inside to control it which is missing as well. Does anyone know how to replace these. I have found the parts and am ordering them today.

Do you have the new mirror? Did you get the whole thing or just the glass? You can pop the glass (mirror) out of the holder with a flat bar and some slight pressure, don't break it, It comes out, or you can take the whole thing off and replace the mirror, motor and everything. Behind the mirror, inside the car, is a black plastic triangle, it pops off exposing 3 or 4 bolts, remove the bolts, hang on to the mirror, it is heavy, disconnect the wires going to the motor, replace, should be all set, Hope this helps.
I have a 2001 Ford Focus ZX3 manual transmission. The steering wheel is stuck and the key won't go all the way in and turn the ignition. I change the passenger side power mirror and this happen. What can I do?
Removal and Installation Remove the trim panel. Release the clip. Release the locating tabs. Remove the trim panel. Disconnect the exterior mirror control switch electrical connector. Disconnect the exterior mirror electrical connector. Release the clip. Release the electrical connector. Disconnect the electrical connector. Remove the exterior mirror. Remove the bolt. If equipped, remove the screw. To install, reverse the removal procedure.
remove the defroster vent, it just clips in. Remove the conections for power window. there might be two small screws nere what would be the corners of the mirror assembly,remove them. There is 1 large slotted type screw dead center of the mirror assembly.Remove that screw taking care not to drop it into the door. Done.
Interesting and fairly easy to do. I pried off the black plastic interior trim piece by simply pulling carefully on the end facing the windshield, then pulling at the back end. Came off fairly easily. Once off, I could see the wire connector. The mirror has a short wire which goes through the body of the car and connects to the wire connector which comes from inside the door. I did have to take out the two screws holding the front part of the door panel. This was to weave the wires back through because the go below the top of the door panel through the door body.
Once that was done I found the main screw through a barely big enough hole in the door and took that out.
Once that was off, all I had to do was take out one more screw that goes through the front metal body of the door into the mirror assembly.
It was just a process of weaving the wire back through the door, then I installed the front small screw next to hold the mirror in place, then I put in the big screw that really holds the mirror on, connected the wire back together and put the screws back into the door panel. Snap on the inside plastic piece and you're done.
It took me about 30 minutes or so and I had never done it before.
had to install a driver side non folding mirror, fairly simply to say the least. There's a cover on the interior of the door, near the window, remove the cover, remove the 3 screws, need i believe a 10mm socket. If a power window, unhook the circuit. Replace new mirror.
