    That's the question: HOW DO YOU REPLACE THE WHOLE HOUSING? Is there a manual I can buy or borrow at a library?

How do I remove passenger door mirror


Your local part store shoul sell the glass for the mirror on your particular vehicle. You just break out the rest of the glass in the mirror housing and glue the new one in. The new glass should come with double sided adhesive tape, I've never had any luck with the stuff, I always use a flowable clear silicone for glass. It's pretty runny so it takes a while to tack up meaning you need to find a way to hold the glass on while it drys, but it will hold throug the weather and vibration of driving

Brake light out on dodge journey, how to replace if it is just the bulb


According to the owner's manual for 2009 on pages 464-65:
(1) open the liftgate
(2) remove the two fasteners from the inboard side of the taillight housing.
(3) insert a trim stick between body panel and outboard side of the taillight housing with one hand and grasp the flange on the inboard side of the taillight housing with the other. use the trim stick and hand pressure together to disengage the taillight housing from the vehicle.
(4) rotate the bulb's electrical connector 1/4 turn counterclockwise (lefty loosey) and remove it from taillight housing.
(5) remove the bulb from the connector socket and install replacement bulb.
(6) install the bulb and connector assembly into the taillight housing and rotate the connector 1/4 clockwise to lock it in place
(7) reinstall the taillight housing and fasteners.
don't be surprised if you crack a fastener or two. i hope this helps--good luck. jono

My daughter has a 2000 ford focus and she says that she is losing antifreeze in the back of her motor on the drivers side, is that where the water pump is?


The water pump should be on the passenger side with all accessory belt and all the pulleys. There's actually a thermostat housing on the driver's side of the engine. It's most likely that the housing has cracked at the seal. The seal sits in in a groove in the housing. The plastic housing is about 1mm thick at the seal and is known to break

I need to remove the taillight on a 2005 Dodge grand Caravan and install a new one. What are the steps needed to perform the task?


Open tailgate. Remove the 2 taillight housing screws, using a trim tool or screwdriver. Turn the taillight housing towards the outside of the van to disengage the retaining hook(tab). To remove the bulb squeeze the tabs on the bulb then pull straight out. When doing this check the rubber grommet the tab goes in replace if cracked or worn. this causes leaks if bad

Need to replace passenger side view mirror 200 GMC Jimmy Diamond


On my '97, there was a triangular shaped piece of plastic on the inside trim that had to be removed. I think all three mounting screws were under that. It's been a few years, but I think that was how it was done.
I remember it was pretty easy though.

Replace brake light on my 2002 Honda Oddesey passenger side


Open the rear hatch and remove the two taillight mounting screws. These screws are located behind two plastic flaps that are flush fitting and part of the tail light housing. You will need a small flat blade screwdriver to put under the edge of the flap nearest the light. Pry gently (but persistently) and the flap will open to reveal the screw head underneath. (The hinge of the flap is on the side nearest the hatch opening.) Remove the screws with a phillips head screwdriver or an 8mm socket. Now comes the tricky part. Wiggle/pry the taillight housing as straight back as you can. Keep pulling/wiggling until the forward clip releases. Once it does you will be able to access the bulbs by rotating the bulb holders counterclockwise. Pull the bulb straight up out of its socket. Replace with the new bulb. Note how the forward spear point clip fits into its socket at the forward outboard edge of the housing. Fit the clip and push forward on the housing until you can hear the clip snap into place. Replace the screws and fold back the flaps. You're done.

Replacement of rear outside tail light assembly


If you're asking how do you change a taillight bulb, then follow this procedure:

Open the trunk lid.

Disconnect the connectors from the taillights (taillight bulb connectors are visible by looking inside the trunk at the back of the tail lamps.) There may be an interior trunk trim panel that you have to take off but in most cases its just a series of thumb screws that hold them in.


Brake Lights/Taillights: 21/5 W

Rear Turn Signal Light: 21 W

Back-up Light: 21 W

Rear Side Marker Light: 5 W


Turn the bulb sockets 45 º counterclockwise to remove the bulbs.


If you're removing the taillamps with the bumper off there are 3 nuts and screws that hold the taillight to the rear panel of the car that have to come off from the inside of the trunk.
Remove the nuts and screws, then remove the taillight.

hope that answers your question
