I need to replace the passenger side mirror

I bought the new mirror and was told at the parts store that I will need to remove the interior part of the door in order to replaqce the mirror. I looked and did not see an obvious place to start. How do I remove the interior part of the door and not damage it? Or better still how should I do it?

I went to a body shop and asked the same question and they said that they will show me they removed only the inner cover for the mirror, and in less than 5 minites had the mirror attached, it cost me nothing. and I now can do it myself if I need to.

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

My passengers side mirror has gotten broken of how would you put it back on there?


you need replace the mirror with a new used or aftermarket one. You will have to remove the interior trim panel better have some extra door panel clips on hand. Then uplug the power to the mirror releasing the clip. Then unbold the nuts from the inside of the mirror inside the door behind the front corner of the door window opening. Make sure you hold the mirror so it doesnt drop on the paint. Sometimes aftermarket is cheaper but the mirror will shake. I like OEM used or New OEM parts.

Passenger side mirror


If you need to replace the entire mirror - it's a little involved. First you need to take the upper extension panel off from behind the mirror (black triangle) - just pull it of starting at the top. It will snap back on later. Next - remove the different screws holding the door panel in place (not the ones behind the mirror yet!) One is under the handle (pull it out and pull out the filler panel - small plastic thing that has a hole to pry it out). Then take off the rear red light - also pops off - and remove that screw. Finally - pick up the rubber filler where your fingers pull the door shut and remove these torx bolts.

Now is the tricky part. Snapp off the entire interior panel. It will pop off - but very difficult. It will sound like it is breaking! Start at the outer bottom corner - and use a door panel remover tool - check Amazon or E-bay - to keep from breaking things. Pull it out from all around the bottom and sides and then lift it up over the door lock. It good to have a friend help here. The panel will still be held on by a cable - that is your door release - leave it alone and let the panel hang by it (or better, put a box under it to rest on).

Now...remove the three bolts holding the mirror on - have a friend help hold the mirror while you do this or it will scratch your new car! Since the inner panel is off - you can also disonnect the mirror plus and remove it. It sounds silly - but the only reason to remove the door panel is to unplug it!

Get you new mirror and reverse the steps.

If you are just replacing the glass (non-heated) - get a replacement from the dealer. Adjust the mirror all the way to the inside and reach behind and pop it off. CAREFUL - put tape over the entire glass as it will likely break even more! Remove your connectors if heated - and replace (and reconnect) with your new glass. It just pops back on!

Replacing glass is easy - just be careful of cheap imitations on e-abay). And never use cheap flat glass on the passenger side! The DOT has special requirements for mirror glass - buy it from gmpartsdirect.com or your local dealer.
