Ok, there is a triangle shaped cover on the inside of the door opposite of the mirror. use a butter knife or similar tool ( flat screw driver) and pry the cover off, it is held in by 2 clips. with that removed you will see the 2 nuts that hold the mirror on (there may be foam insulation covering the nuts). if yours is power then disconnect the connector first then remove the 2 retaining nuts. make sure to hold the old mirror or it could fall after you take the nuts out. install new one in reverse order. viola! good as new!

    also when tightening the nuts on the new mirror, make sure you don't overtighten them. the spec calls for 80 inch pounds but unless you have a torque wrench that number means nothing, lol, use good judgement, try to feel how tight the old ones were when taking them off and use the same force to install.

Remove passenger side mirror. Ineed to replace a broken passenger side mirror. Do I need to remove the entire door panel to access the scriews holding the mirror and to access to electrical connection?


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

Putting new mirror on passenger side door?


Behind the passenger-side front-door at the bottom of the window
you will find a molded triangular panel with a tweeter [audio speaker].
To access the nuts that affix the side-view mirror to the door you will
remove the panel. Gently pry on the top of the panel to remove it but be careful as speaker wires will be attached. Quick way to replace the mirror assembly is to support the panel and don't put stress on the wires. Open the door and find the nuts that hold the mirror onto the door. If you have electric powered mirrors you will need to separate the connector that sends current to the mirror for the remote function. Remove the nuts and be very careful not to drop the nuts into the door cavity. Good luck!

Passenger side mirror


If you need to replace the entire mirror - it's a little involved. First you need to take the upper extension panel off from behind the mirror (black triangle) - just pull it of starting at the top. It will snap back on later. Next - remove the different screws holding the door panel in place (not the ones behind the mirror yet!) One is under the handle (pull it out and pull out the filler panel - small plastic thing that has a hole to pry it out). Then take off the rear red light - also pops off - and remove that screw. Finally - pick up the rubber filler where your fingers pull the door shut and remove these torx bolts.

Now is the tricky part. Snapp off the entire interior panel. It will pop off - but very difficult. It will sound like it is breaking! Start at the outer bottom corner - and use a door panel remover tool - check Amazon or E-bay - to keep from breaking things. Pull it out from all around the bottom and sides and then lift it up over the door lock. It good to have a friend help here. The panel will still be held on by a cable - that is your door release - leave it alone and let the panel hang by it (or better, put a box under it to rest on).

Now...remove the three bolts holding the mirror on - have a friend help hold the mirror while you do this or it will scratch your new car! Since the inner panel is off - you can also disonnect the mirror plus and remove it. It sounds silly - but the only reason to remove the door panel is to unplug it!

Get you new mirror and reverse the steps.

If you are just replacing the glass (non-heated) - get a replacement from the dealer. Adjust the mirror all the way to the inside and reach behind and pop it off. CAREFUL - put tape over the entire glass as it will likely break even more! Remove your connectors if heated - and replace (and reconnect) with your new glass. It just pops back on!

Replacing glass is easy - just be careful of cheap imitations on e-abay). And never use cheap flat glass on the passenger side! The DOT has special requirements for mirror glass - buy it from gmpartsdirect.com or your local dealer.

Buick LeSabre side mirror


Yes, you will have to take the door panel off. I'm attempting to replace the passenger side mirror at the moment and have the old one out, but can't get enough access to the bolts to attach the new one without opening up the side panel.
I'm still looking into how to do this, as I haven't found the right sequence for removing it. I'll try to post how when I figure it out, as I also hate paying for a manual for simple repairs.

Side mirrors


simple there are 3 nuts 8mm or 10 mm one the backside of those mirrors. sometimes ya just pop off the upper trim on the inside of the door. sometimes you have to remove the whole door panel and that little triangle piece to access the nuts.
