Question about 2001 GMC Sierra Crew Cab
Hi, backing up to hitch up a trailer my eye was on that instead of the telephone pole that I ended up hitting with my driver's side rear view mirror. Luckily the mirror poped out - and spider webed - but I was able to pop it back in, tape it because I wasn't sure if it'd come out on its own, AND it works with the electric adjustment and all - yeah!
I NEED to R& R the mirror and thinking maybe I can find a good mirror at a local junk yard? But if I do how do I pull off the good mirror without breaking it and make sure it goes in securely so I don't have to worry about it popping out in the future on my truck?
I don't want to buy a whole new mirror assy. if I don't need to and tempt the Gods of Fate for more problems with a new one!
Thanks so much! Vicki T
On the Back of the mirror in the middle is a big plastic ring that is a pressure fitting you should be able to just pop the old one out and put the new one in. If you have to replace the whole assembly it's easy if you look at the inside of the door rigth where the mirror is attached there is a triangle piece of plastic you can just pop that off and there will be three bolts in side to remove the mirror if you have there should be some foam protecting the electrical wires inside that just comes out. Good Luck.
