Question about 2002 Nissan Xterra
Hi. I have a broken mirror assembly on an Xterra with electric locks, mirrors and windows.
I have a replacement assembly, and it appears that all I need to do is disconnect the cable, back out 3 bolts, pull off the old mirror, put the new up with the 3 bolts, reattach the cable, and adjust the mirror.
The problem is the door panel. At first, it appeared that there was a small triangular piece of plastic that simply popped off, covering the mirror attachment area. That now appears to not be the case, and it seems that the door panel is all one piece. I have attempted to bend back the small plastic piece, but without stressing the plastic to an extreme, I don't think that will work.
Does the whole door panel have to come off? Say it ain't so!
You'll need to 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. Then you can access the mirror assembly.. it's a huge pain to change such a small part
