Installing driver side exterior mirror on 2000 pontiac sunfire

My car was hit on the drivers side (whoever it was didn't stop) and the door and fender got scratched and the rear view mirror got knocked off. I can get one at a local used auto parts yard but I don't know how to install it. It's a manual mirror with a long spring hook-up.

Thanks for the help.

As the owner of a 2001 Grand Prix GTP I can tell you that the mirror you speak of is not terribly difficult to replace, but you need the tools to remove the inside panels in the front corner of the window to get to it. Once you get that off there should be three bolts/nuts that hold the mirror on and if you have power mirrors then of course you'll have an electrical connector in there as well.

I dont have any instructions wrote up but there is a Grand Prix car club forum you can check that may have some information on how to replace it in more detail. You can go to grandprixforums.net, sign up and post up your problem and Im sure someone there will probably have specific instructions.

SOURCE: Installing exterior driver side and passaner side door handles

I found this on another page, hope it helps:)

Remove the plastic cover behind the door handle assembly by removing one black 14mm nut from just above the door handle, and 1 screw (usually phillips) from the bottom of the plastic cover.
Remove linkages from lock cylinder and door handle assembly. Use a small flathead screwdriver to slide retaining clips forward, and linkages will come free.
Remove one black 14mm nut from the very top of the door handle assembly.
Remove one phillips screw drom the bottom of the door handle assembly.
Door handle assembly should now come free by pulling out slightly at the top, and pulling upwards.
Transfer lock cylinder and key minder light (if applicable) to new door handle assembly. Lock cylinder is retained by a single TORX bolt.
Reinstall in reverse.
TIP: If you lose or damage any of those black plastic coated nuts, order new ones. They are GM p/n 10067214 and should be around $0.58/each. There are two on each door.

If by the spring you mean where the mirror attaches your in luck. New replacement mirrors, and just the glass part, are readily available from auto parts stores. The mirror is easily mounted using a special glue also obtained at the same store. Just clean the surface of the "spring" well with acetone, apply the glue and mirror as instructed. Good luck.

SOURCE: 1999 Pontiac Montana DRIVER SIDE mirror attachment broken.

The most inexpensive cure is to replace it entirely. I've gone to dealers to buy small parts & paid more for the small parts than the entire item costs elsewhere.

I didn't of course call & verify the exact price since I can't see the damage so I'm going on years of replacing mirrors others have broken off & asked me to repair.

You can see the part in it's entirety on eBay at a reasonable price for heated & power, see item #
110440973578 priced at 48.00 incl. S&H.

good luck

Drivers side mirror got knocked off


cheapest easiest way is to get a replacement mirror at a wrecking/junk/auto recycling yard. the mirror is generally attached by two to three bolts. to gain access there is usually a small panel over the mirror on the inside of the door.. gently pry that off
