That dependso on if the housing itself is broken then yes. If the face plate that is attached to the mirror itself is flapping around then maybe. If it is just the mirror, just go to your neighborhood auto glass shop and but a "Ready-Cut" mirror for a small amount of money. they come already cut to fit perfectly. As for removing the old glass, take a very small flat screw driver and pry the glass away from the face plate. Once completely cleaned out use the adhesive from the ready cut and place them on the face plate. Next press the new mirror onto the flace pate, being careful not to press to hard or it will snap it in half.

SOURCE: How do you remove just glass from drivers side mirror?

I posted earlier that I was facing this same problem and found a sight that said you needed to heat the mirror before you start digging. Got a blow driver and a flat head screwdriver and started prying and the pieces started coming out. Took a bit of effort, but the blow dryer was the key.

One thing, my mirror has the turn signal dots and I believe is also heated. When you start prying out the glass, the glass sits on a black rubber-like backing and that is glued to a thin mettalic looking sheet which has metallic leaders running through it. This is then glued to the backing plate. My guess is these metallic "runners" are the heating elements. You don't want to scrape that up. You want the mirror with the black backing and don't scrape the thin metallic sheet. The blow dryer is again key in getting that to detach.

My vehicle is a late model Yukon and everyone probably won't have this problem.

SOURCE: need to replace driver side mirror of an 2008 ford

You can buy stick on replacement mirror glass for most models in good motor accessory shops.These just stick on to the existing glass if there is enough left to stick it to.
If not the dealer will supply the glass seperately but its a little tricky to fit and might be well worth letting them fit it too as it is very easy to break while fitting.

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.

You should be able to replace the glass, but I believe it is glued in place. You should be able to tell as you remove the old pieces. It is a special white glue.
I was able to get a great price for the whole mirror on ebay. even the ones with signals and heated.

Hope this helps

How to replace glass in Driver side rear view mirror?


Not sure of the X5 but on the M3 the mirrored glass portion of the driver side view mirror just "popped" onto the motor carrier in the housing. It was a little nerve racking removing and replacing the glass (my motor had died) but with care its possible. Suggest going to RealOEM.com site and enter vehicle vin information then go to vehicle trim and then outside mirror for details of assembly

I need to replace broken driver side mirror 1997 yukon i need to remove just the glass not housing?


Yes the glass element just pops out and the new one pops in. No need to replace the whole mirror or even take it off. Pull evenly as it will take some force to free the ball sockets it is attached to from the power motor.

How to replace passenger side mirror. Glass is


You can usually just replace the mirror, any commercial auto-glass store has the glass you need. sometimes it is necessary to replace the mirror and its backing (a plastic frame which snaps into the adjustable motor) you don't need to replace the whole mirror unless the housing is broken.

Please rate this answer. Thank you.

Power mirrors are loose, how do i tighten them?


Hi, if the complete unit is loose you will find bolts on the inside of the door just above the door panel behind a cover (usually a triangular shaped cover), that you will have to tighten. If the mirror glass is loose you should find a hole underneath the mirror housing where you have to put a screw driver in and tighten the screw on the inside to secure the glass.
