    there will be small plastic cap/cover hiding about 3-5 screws (depending on your car) holding things like the handle to the frame of the door. you need to find all of them and remove them. there will also be small circle plastic caps you need to pop out.( use a screw driver) don't brake them.

    once done take your screw drive and hand and pry apart the door trim from the panle. be carful and start at the door lock. just get a little bit inside and star to pry. you will hear a poping sound and thats ok. there plastic clips holding your trim to the door. contnue along the hole doors out side circumfrence. stop if you think your about to brake somting. it help to move one and try another spot. with atuo windows and mirrors once the door is off the only thing holding you up is the door handle and wires for the window and mirrors and maybe locks. you can rest the door on a box/your foot ... what ever just don't let it hang for to long. remove the wires for the window. (it will be easy to tell) with a screw drive and your done. do the reverse to install. you may need to hit softly/ push hard to get your door to atach to the frame.

Outside mirrors won't move


Can you hear anything coming from the mirror? Is only one working? If so, its possible that your mirror motor has died on you. If you're not hearing anything from both sides, I would check the fuse and voltage going to the fuse. If that's good then you could either check wiring from mirror motors to the module. I believe the controller is the general module located under the front passenger kick panel. Or you could also swap out the switch block for the mirror assembly as you could return that. Replacing the programming the GM will burn it to your vehicle.

Not really.

1. Remove the plastic mirror cover (on the inside of the door) and this will reveal the mounting screws and wiring of the mirror assembly.

2. Disconnect the mirror wiring loom on the inside of the door

3. Remove the screws and withdraw the mirror assembly from the door.

Need to replace Mirror Assembly, 03 suburban


Your going to have to remove the inside door panel to get to the three bolts that hold the out side mirror assembly. Once you have the door panel off you'll see the three bolts that hold the mirror assembly, just un-bolt and un-clip the wire harness to the electric/heated mirror. To install the new mirror assembly, just do everything in reveres. Go to Auto Zone and by extra door panel clips, there is a good chance of breaking some of the retainer clips and Auto Zone will have the step by step instructions to replacing the mirror assembly and the removal to the door panel. Good luck and keep me posted. Be glad to help.

If it power then you will have to remove the door panel to access the wiring to disconnect it

Side view mirror on my x3 either broke or became


I have never had the privelage to work on a BMW but I am assuming they are assembled in a similar manner to most other modern cars so if you look directly behind the mirror on the inside there should be a plastic cover which hides the mounting bolts for the mirror.
The cover should just unclip without too much pressure.
There will be some wires coming from the back of the mirror which will have to be removed before removing the mirror. You should see a plastic block which the wires go into, seperate the blocks, remove the bolts and remove the mirror.
I hope this has helped or is reasonably close to what I am telling you
