Replace passenger side mirror on a Mercury Cougar 2000

Passenger mirror was knocked off - dangling by a wire right now. A replacement part was ordered from ebay. Is this something a non-mechanic can install, or should we plan to take it to a garage?

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. You can then remove the bolts securing the mirror onto the door

Just repaired one of these same issue. The one that was repaired locked the ac compressor up and burned the drive belt causing the alt to no longer charge. Would check the ac compressor first for the noise. If belt is still on and vehicle still runs may have have an alternator issue.

Broken passenger side mirror on door of 2000 ford escort

Ok that makes it a little easier.

You will have to remove the door panel first.

First inside the pull cup where you pull to close the door remove the screw located there.
Now look in behind the inside door handle and you will see a cap cover,remove this and you will see another screw that has to be removed.
Now on the front of the door panel you will see 2 push pins that will need to be removed.These are 2 piece pins so take a small pick and remove the center piece first then remove the outer piece.

Now you will need a pair of needle nose pliers or a trim tool and start at the bottom of the door panel you will need to insert the pliers or trim tool and pry out(take your time and be careful not to damage panel,slide the tool along until you reach a clip then pry out to release the clip)and work your way up the sides of the door panel to release all of the clips. There will be seven of these clips.After you have all seven clips released then lift up on the panel to remove it.

Now you can remove and replace the mirror.
After getting door panel off
Peel back the water-shield.
Remove the rear view mirror mounting hole cover
Disconnect the power mirror electrical connector.
Now remove the 3 screws holding the mirror and remove.

Replace side mirror

you can find these on ebay very cheap, remove caps on interior, should just pop off, unbolt the mirror and pop off, make sure you undo the clip on for the cord first so you dont have the mirror dangling and scratch the paint.
