Unless the 1999 uses a different mirror from my '96, if it has an inside adjuster lever it's cables in the mirror. You can find aftermarket replacements for around $30 to $40 for Saturns.

I would first take the mirror apart to make sure the cable is still attached. Then if it is I would soak the cable with penetrating oil and put it back together and hope for the best.

How to take apart and replace a Saturn SL Wagon, 1999, left side front door mirror and repair movement cables. The mirror remaines moveable vertically but not horizontally.

what you need to do is find a serviceable used mirror on eBay or at a junkyard, lots of them around. you are not going to take it apart and fix it. most any saturn mirror, 95-99 is going to fit. take off the cosmetic part inside with a screwdriver, remove the three nuts holding the mirror on. new one goes back the same way.

How much mount does a 1999 saturn sl have

Do not really know what you are asking. On the S-series engines 91-99 there are 4 motor mounts, one on top passenger side, one on the bottom of the transmission driver side, and one on either end of the engine. All of them can be replaced in an afternoon with basic tools, jack stands and a good floor jack. The one on the bottom is a bit testy and if you are not mechanical you should leave it for a pro.

I have water mostly under my driver front side floorboards. There is some water under the passenger side but only about 1/4 of what is on the driver side. I am not sure where the water could be coming...

is it water or anti-freeze
if it is anti-freeze i would have to say your heart core is leaking bad
also check you engine coolant and see if you have lost any
get back to me and leave some feed back
hope i was a help

1999 Saturn sl with shifting problems first gear and reverse

Ms Derry ,I would check the pair of shift cables and shifter itself before suspecting internal transmission problems.The cables attach to the shifter then runs to the linkage on the transmission.One cable is responsible for side to side movement as the other is for moving front to back(like 1st to second) Center console removal is fairly simple which requires mounting screw(4) removal on the front sides and in the rear cup holder.This gives you an opportunity to view the shifter and cable operation from above while this movement should also be appreciated at the transmission linkage meaning someone shifts the vehicle as another inspects proper movement at the transmission.If all this is actuating properly,you may need to tear down and inspect transmission but hopefully it can be rectified with external repairs mentioned...good luck
