Question about Dodge Neon
Some of those have a seperate piece of trim inside the door at the mirror and it can be removed by itself to access the nuts. It can be pried off. Others require removal of the door trim panel. If you have take the whole trimi panel off, start by taking the screws out from behind the release handle and inside the pull cup. If you have manual windows you'll have to remove the crank. There's a trick for this: get a cloth rag and tuck it between the crank and trim panel and let the ends hang down. Grab the ends and pull down on them quickly in a sawing motion. You may need to try different positions, but usually it is with the crank pointed straight up or straight down. The cloth will catch the ends of the horse shoe clip and disengage it allowing you to slide the crank off the shaft. Then slide a large flat blade screw driver into the bottom between the trim panel and body and pry outward to release the plastic retaining clips. They go all around the door, but once the bottom comes out far enough to get your fingers in there you can work your way around very easily to release all of them. Some of them will break. There's nothing you can do about that. Just be careful not to break the trim panel. Remove the rod from the release handle by unsnapping it (it rotates) and then pop the rod out. I'd recommend using a bungee cord to support the trim panel so as to not damage the wiring (or disconnect the wires). There should be 3 8mm (or 5/16) nuts that hold the mirror to the door and some models have an additional 8 or 10mm bolt hidden somewhere. It's easy to get to, but it's somewhere you wouldn't expect it to be. I can't remember without looking at one where exactly it is. If it's electric, disconnect the connector. If it's manual, snap the bezel off the adjuster knob. The mirror may stick a little, but generally they come off relatively easy. Hit me back if you need clarification. Good luck.
