This site will tell you what you need to know. good luck with this.

http://autorepair.about.com/od/otherodddiyjobs/l/aa092504a.htm. In addition to the advice at the above site, I found another trick to removing the trim around the inside door handle. The above article refers to putting a screwdriver UNDER the door handle and pushing down ... to release a "secret latch". That's the first step. The second step (which is not in the article) is to insert the scredriver ABOVE the door handle ... vertically above the spot shown in the article. Then gently press the screwdriver handle down. With the screwdriver acting as a lever, the tip of the screwdriver will push UP on the top part of the trim. That will lift the trim up off a small pin on the handle mechanism. With both the bottom and top of the trim piece now "unlatched", slide the trim toward the back of the car, while you open the inside door handle (as mentioned in the article). The trim will come right off. Be sure to slide the trim toward the back of the car, as you move the trim away from the door panel. (There is a "hooked" piece of plastic on the back of that trim that prevents you from just pulling it out perpendicular to the door panel.) 'Hope these fine points help.

To remove the door panel you will have to pull out on the bottom edges. There is a tool sold for this but you can use a screwdriver. It doesn't sound good when you pop them off but there are small plastic tabs you have to force out. This is what is being done when you pry the panel outward. Then there are screws that you will have to remove where the door handle and arm rest area is. You have to pop off the covers and then you will see the screws. All that is left to do is pull out and up and the door panel will come off. There is nothing fancy about it. Just take your time and don't be too concerned about using force.

Drivers side heated mirror turned amber


1999 blazer mirror problems. First I would replace the mirror. You can get an after market right side/left side, heated on eBay very cheap. that's where I get mine. They work fine. But you say the mechanic never fix your other problem in the first place. So I wouldn't no where to start. What is the other problem? Im just taking a guess here. But check your connections under your door pannel. Make sure no wires are bare or crushed. Make sure if any, fuses are not bad. Make sure your heat system that runs the heat to your mirror's is operating proper. You might have a short somewhere or maybe its just time to replace the mirror. To me when you see an amber color to your mirror it's the same as a light bulb blowing out or the mirror is getting to hot and shorted out. Good Luck.

Is it ok to put non heated mirror over heated mirror


The replacement mirror that you buy at most auto supply stores are not to be used as a replacement for a heated mirror due to fact that the materials used to make the heated mirror are different. You will need to replace it with the same type of mirror from the dealer.

1998 Saab 900 Convertible turbo. Mirrors, lighter, and heated seats do not work. I have checked the fuses and don't see any blown. I believe that it needs front struts. Don't have alot of money to...


mirrors you can adjust by hand(press left side or right side to move)
heated seats you can live without.
cigarette lighter ...no comment.
push one front corner down hard and let it bounce up,it should only bounce up then back to normal height.then do other side if either corner continues to bounce then you need to replace BOTH struts.

Park avenue driver side mirror leaks oily fluid


The is most likely the chemical that is injected between mirror layers that keeps the mirror from icing on a heated mirror. The seal has deteriorated due to age, most likely. It needs to be replaced with another of the same mirror or a non heated single layer mirror.

Broken driver side view mirror-2005 camry


Heated mirrors usually have a symbol on them -- a small diagram showing squigley heat lines.

If you don't see this, it's probably not heated. But when you take the mirror off, if it's heated it'll have wires connected to the back.

Yes, you can replace a heated mirror with non-heated -- just leave the wires tucked out of the way when you install the new mirror.
