Question about 2002 Nissan Xterra

1 Answer

RH door mirror assembly

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!

    my buddies and I are stumped with this one also... it seems the small triangle should not be attached to the whole door panel.. i myself have stopped trying and must take it to an auto mechanic for installations

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

Replace drivers door due to crash. old door had 3


You have to examine and compare the two doors. I am just guessing but I would bet that it is the power mirror that your new door is lacking.

Just follow the wiring into each door.

1. Power locks wires should run to a region near the latch mechanism.
2. Power Windows wires should run to somewhere in the middle of the door.
3. Power mirror should run almost straight up towards the mirror assembly.

If it is the power mirror assembly you should be able to transplant your old one provided that it is not damaged.

If it is power windows, adapting power windows will be much harder as the new door may or may not have the provisions for mounting the regulator, etc.

If it is power locks you may need to transplant the latch and actuator assembly along with its wiring.

Broken RH Side Mirror Raplacement


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

My right side mirror of my 2004 nissan sentre is hanging off how can I fix it my self


If only the glass is affected, it can be replaced by slipping a new mirror element into place and locking it. Some mirrors press in, others are locked with a screwdriver turning a little gear through a slot under the mirror. If the mirror plastic body is broken, you can also replace that with a used assembly from Ebay or a junkyard. Replacement requires removal of the door panel, which is more difficult than replacing the mirror. Be sure you have re-connected all the wiring harnesses and checked the mirror operation if it is electrically adjusted before replacing the door panel. Replacement assemblies range from $20-$70 on Ebay. Glass only is much less.
