Just a screwdriver and a socket / wrench is all I use
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. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door

How to replace Inside Rear View Mirror on 2000


Hello, to replace the rear mirror, try the following:

1. Roll the passenger side door window all the way down. Turn off the ignition and remove the keys.


2. Gently pry the window control panel from the arm rest with the pry tool or screwdriver starting at the bottom of the panel. Flip it over and unplug all the wire harness outlets from it. Set the panel aside.

3. Locate and remove the two panel door plugs near the arm rest concealing the two screws and remove the screws with the Phillips head screwdriver.

4. Remove the door panel retainer plugs along the edge of the door by pressing in the middle of the plug to unlock it and removing the plug.


5. Detach the mounting triangle from the upper inside door panel covering the side-view mirror.

6. Remove the door panel by lifting outward and then upward. Disconnect the speaker wire harness from the underside of the door panel and set the door panel aside.

7. Locate and disconnect the mirror wire harness.

8. Pull back the foam insulation from the inside panel covering the side-view mirror.

9. Unscrew the three mounting nuts from the mirror using the ratchet, extension and a socket. Do not drop the nuts into the door cavity.

10. Pry the mirror gently away from the outside of the door.

11. Install the new mirror and replace the mounting nuts on the mirror studs and tighten with the ratchet, socket, and extension. Plug the mirror wire harness back in. Replace the foam insulation. Replace the mounting triangle.


12. Replace the door panel by reversing the procedure. Start by plugging in the speaker wire first.

Sideview mirror has broke from the base


Side view mirrors are relatively simple to replace. Sometimes it requires the removal of the complete door trim to gain access to the mounting nuts and any wiring it may have. Other times there is a triangle piece in the corner of the door window opening that can be removed by itself and allows access to the hardware and wiring connectors. Check local junkyards for a used mirror, you may even find one in the right color. Good luck.

How do I install a left side view mirror on my 04 Grand Prix? I am sure I have to take the door panel off but is there a trick or a common problem I should know?


You'll need to 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. Then pull off the cover beside the mirror which is held in by clips... remove bolts to mirror

Replace drivers side mirror and removal of the door pannel on a 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix


They have kits you can buy to remove the door panel but when you do it, be careful and go slow, make sure not to break off the clips on the door panel otherwise it wont fit right when you want to put it back in. im not so sure about the mirror though.

2000 Pontiac Grand Prix Passenger Side rear view mirror


As the owner of a 2001 Grand Prix GTP I can tell you that the mirror you speak of is not terribly difficult to replace, but you need the tools to remove the inside panels in the front corner of the window to get to it. Once you get that off there should be three bolts/nuts that hold the mirror on and if you have power mirrors then of course you'll have an electrical connector in there as well.

I dont have any instructions wrote up but there is a Grand Prix car club forum you can check that may have some information on how to replace it in more detail. You can go to grandprixforums.net, sign up and post up your problem and Im sure someone there will probably have specific instructions.

Replacing a drivers side mirror


There is a panel on the inside of the door where the mirror is.
That has to come off.
In some cases the door panel has to come off also.
Under the mirror panel there are nuts that hold the mirror on. Remove the nuts unplug the harness and install the new one.
