Drivers side mirror change 1994 ford explorer


You will have to remove the inside panel of the door to get at the mounting nuts. Once these are off, you will also have to disconnect the electrical connector to the mirror assembly. The panel will come off after you remove the phillips head screws by the door latch and armrest. It is held on by push pins. A small prying tool will be necessary to avoid breaking them or the panel.

How do i remove drivers side door panel on a 2000 ford explorer?


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. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door

How do i replace a passenger side mirror on a 2001 ford focus


Interesting and fairly easy to do. I pried off the black plastic interior trim piece by simply pulling carefully on the end facing the windshield, then pulling at the back end. Came off fairly easily. Once off, I could see the wire connector. The mirror has a short wire which goes through the body of the car and connects to the wire connector which comes from inside the door. I did have to take out the two screws holding the front part of the door panel. This was to weave the wires back through because the go below the top of the door panel through the door body.
Once that was done I found the main screw through a barely big enough hole in the door and took that out.
Once that was off, all I had to do was take out one more screw that goes through the front metal body of the door into the mirror assembly.

It was just a process of weaving the wire back through the door, then I installed the front small screw next to hold the mirror in place, then I put in the big screw that really holds the mirror on, connected the wire back together and put the screws back into the door panel. Snap on the inside plastic piece and you're done.

It took me about 30 minutes or so and I had never done it before.

2000 ford explorer door handle


I assume you mean the drivers door. You need to remove the door panel and there are two nuts on the inside holding it on.The door panel has three retaining screws and you need to locate and remove. You then slide the door panel up and then remove it.DON'T pry the panel out you will break it.One screw is on the bottom of the panel. You should see that one. The other ones are under the door switch area and the inside door handle trim.Some have one under the remote mirror trim but not likely.That should give you access to the door handle nuts. Good Luck and I hope this helps you. Thanks Dan
