In most cases you do especially if it is a power mirror. If it is manual, you may only have to remove the plastic triangle panel to access the 3 bolts securing it

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: The battery in my 2006

The 2006 Vibe no longer has that feature. It was discontinued after 2005. I have the 2005 so I know how to change it. If your 2006 is able to change then here are the directions from my 2005.
Programmable Automatic
Door Locks
If you have an automatic transaxle, your vehicle is equipped with an auto door lock/unlock feature which enables you to program your power door locks.
Your vehicle left the factory programmed to Mode 4.
The following is a list of the available programming options:
Mode 1: All doors and liftgate lock when the shift lever is moved out of PARK (P) with the ignition on and all doors and liftgate closed. There is no automatic door unlocking.
Mode 2: No automatic door locking or unlocking.
Mode 3: All doors and liftgate lock when the shift lever is moved out of PARK (P) with the ignition on and all doors and liftgate closed. All doors and liftgate unlock when the shift lever is moved to PARK (P) with the ignition on.
Mode 4: All doors and liftgate lock when the shift lever is moved out of PARK (P) with the ignition on and all doors and liftgate closed. All doors and liftgate unlock when the ignition switch is turned from ON to ACC or to LOCK.
To change the mode you are in, do the following:
1. Set the interior lamp control dial to the door position.
See Interior Lamps Control on page 3-16.
2. Move the shift lever into PARK (P) and close all doors and liftgate.
3. Turn the ignition to ON.
4. Within five seconds after the ignition is turned to ON, press and hold the power door lock switch in
the lock position for about five seconds.
5. The interior lamp will flash to indicate that the mode has been changed. For example, if the lamp flashes once, the function has been changed to Mode 1.
If the battery is disconnected or run down, the mode is changed to the initial mode which is Mode 4.

How do i reset power door settings 2006 pontiac vibe


While I have not had this problem with my 2006 Pontiac Vibe, I had the same problem you describe on my 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Unfortunately, the solution is to replace the module in the door panel. I was able to purchase the part at a much lower price on ebay than a dealership, about 1/4th the price. However I had a professional mechanic do the replacement because removing a door panel can be tricky to do without damaging it.

How do I replace driver side view mirror


There is a triangular piece of plastic inside the door opposite the mirror. You remove the panel and you'll see 2 bolts. Remove the bolts and unplug the wire connector (if you have electric rear view mirrors) and the mirror will come right off. Installation is reverse.

I purchased a used Donnelly 0110103 rear view mirror that has a compass and map lights. I'm going to install it in my Pontiac Vibe that has a mirror with map lights. The Donnelly has 4 wires (the Vibe has...


black=neg
black with slim white=door switch
black with wide blue or wide dark green=accesories(switch controlled pos)
black with slim light green=live pos(always connected for map lamps)
If you wire it as such,map lamps would come on both when you open the door and with doors closed when you turn on the switches.
