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'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door

I need to replace the mirror of my 2007 Ford Explorer XLT as it was hit and knowcked off, hanging by the power wires. this is he Passenger side door


You can access the inside mounting bolts by removing the panel just inside of the passenger mirror...the electric plug can be unplugged without any other changes...Your mirror is of course available through your local Ford dealer...you can also try the internet to find a like new replacement mirror and head assembly...just type in 2007 Explorer passenger side mirror...Also, your least costly replacement is available at your local salvage yard...some allow you to browse, and remove yourself...(good practise before scratching yours...some yards will pull the mirror for you...you might even find the exact color...salvage yard mirror heads (electric) go for $25. to $75. Sounds like you have a good start...Hope this helps.

No temporary repair, but If you want to remove broken mirror parts, you must remove inner door panel so you can access wiring harness connector and attaching screws. rayo49.

How do I change the passenger side headlight bulb on 2001 Altima


Open up the hood, and go in behind the fixture where the light is located. Sometimes there is an access panel on top. Open it and reach down inside and grab the bulb’s socket. Twist the socket a quarter turn counter clockwise, and pull out the socket. Grab the bulb, and pull it straight out. To replace the new bulb, never touch it with your bare fingers, as this will greatly shorten the bulb's life, if it even work's at all. Use a tissue or something else in that order to handle the new bulb. Push the new bulb into the socket, put the socket back into the housing, and twist a quarter turn clockwise to secure the socket into the fix.Seems that you have to remove the coolant bottle(two screws), and also the unscrew the washer fluid bottle, after that you can reach the socket that holds the bulb. There is a wire that holds the bulb in. if you loosen the screw you can tip up the wire and be careful to leave it in place...also the long side of the wire seems to connect to ground wire for the light...

I need to replace my 2001 gmc jimmy passenger side mirror, the whole thing. i already perchased a new mirror, i just need to know how to get inside and unhook the wires and screws so i can get my new one...


Very simple....but take your time.

Pry the plastic cover off from the interior side of the mirror. Once you have that popped off, unfasten the mirror, have some one hold the old mirror from the outside. Pull up on the mirror assembly and the wire harness to should become visible. Unclip the harness, toss the old mirror and reverse installation of your new one.

That's it!....But take your time!

Need to replace Mirror Assembly, 03 suburban


Your going to have to remove the inside door panel to get to the three bolts that hold the out side mirror assembly. Once you have the door panel off you'll see the three bolts that hold the mirror assembly, just un-bolt and un-clip the wire harness to the electric/heated mirror. To install the new mirror assembly, just do everything in reveres. Go to Auto Zone and by extra door panel clips, there is a good chance of breaking some of the retainer clips and Auto Zone will have the step by step instructions to replacing the mirror assembly and the removal to the door panel. Good luck and keep me posted. Be glad to help.

How do I change the Right passenger side Mirrror does it just po


You need to take of the door panel so you can get to the attaching hardware to remove to old one. Do not cut the wires until you look inside to see if there is a plug to connect to the new mirror. the broken wires you are talking about will come off with the old mirror. I hope this will help you.
