    Thanks very much! Does the inside (triangular) trim cover just pull off, or are there fasteners of some kind to be dealt with.

    Thanks! Does that (triangular) inside trim cover just pull off, or are there fasteners that I need to deal with?

    Jay, I can't thank you enuf. Took me 15 minutes, mostly because I had a little trouble with the electrical connector. But it's done!

    The door panel needs to be removed to the trim cover for the mirror. Behind that trim cover there are three 10 mm nuts and the electrical connector to remove the mirror. Thanks Jay!

2007 gmc heated mirror module


Could have a DDS an PDS .depends on what RPO code yours has >
Outside Mirror Description and Operation (with RPO DL3)
Or
Outside Mirror Description and Operation (without RPO DL3)
Without
Heated Outside Rearview Mirror Operation
The REAR DEFOG relay controls the operation of the heated outside rearview mirrors. When rear window defogging is requested, the REAR DEFOG relay is energized and B+ is applied to the supply voltage circuit of the mirror heater element, located in the mirror face. A constant ground is also applied to the mirror face. Current will pass through the mirror heater element, warming the mirror, so long as the rear window defogger is commanded ON.

With
Heated Outside Rearview Mirror
The DDS and PDS control the activation of the mirror heaters. Upon receiving a serial data message indicating a request for heated mirrors, the DDS and PDS, will apply voltage to the mirror heater element supply voltage circuit. The mirror heaters will remain active until a new message is received indicating rear defogger is to be deactivated.
The power mirror system consists of the following components:
• Driver Door Switch (DDS)--An electronic control module with integrated switches and requires programming when replaced
• Passenger Door Switch (PDS)--An electronic control module with integrated switches, requires programming when replaced
• Power Mirror Direction Switch--Integrated into DDS and is a four position momentary switch that provides a signal input to the DDS for up, down, left/extend and right/retract with a mirror switch activation
• Mirror Select Switch--Integrated into DDS and is a three position switch that allows the operator to select the left or right mirror and also a neutral/fold position
• Mirror Extend/Retract Switch--Integrated into DDS and is a two position switch that allows the operator to select the mirror extend or mirror retract position
• Left Outside Power Mirror--Contains both the vertical and horizontal mirror motors
• Right Outside Power Mirror--Contains both the vertical and horizontal mirror motors
• Body Control Module--An electronic control module that requires programming when replaced, serves as the power mode master and is the main message handler
• Horizontal and Vertical Position Sensors, if equipped with memory mirrors--Supplied a 5-volt and low reference by the DDS/PDS and provide a variable voltage signal to the DDS/PDS that is proportional to mirror position
• Folding Mirror Motor, in each of the outside mirrors, if equipped with power fold mirrors--Provides extend and retract movements of the mirror and is serviced as a complete mirror assembly
Your best bet mite be to take to a qualified repair shop , i really don't think you'll be able to do anything with it.
Do you have wiring diagrams so you know which wires to test ,do you know how to do electrical testing ?
The Driver Door Switch (DDS) and Passenger Door Switch (PDS) supply voltage to the outside rearview mirror heater elements upon receipt of a serial data message from the HVAC module indicating that the rear defrost system is active. The door switch supplies B+ through the driver/passenger mirror heating element supply voltage circuit when a request is seen. Ground is applied through the driver/passenger mirror heating low reference circuit.

How to replace rear view mirror


Instructions
1


Disconnect your negative battery cable, if your Ford Focus has power side mirrors. If it has manual side mirrors, disconnecting the battery is unnecessary.

2


Pry off the wing mirror's inside sail panel (shaped like a triangle). Insert a trim panel tool between the door skin and the plastic panel to pry it off.





3


Carefully pull the sail panel away, minding the wiring if the mirror is power-operated. Unplug the electrical harness and set the panel aside.

4


Open the door and hold the outside part of the wing mirror steady. Remove the mounting bolt with a socket wrench, and then remove the mirror screw with a Phillips screwdriver (the mirror bolt and screw is visible with the panel removed).

5


Pull the wing mirror assembly from its mount (from the outside). Insert the replacement mirror assembly in place; tighten the bolt and the screw.

6


Attach the wiring connection to the replacement mirror. Position the sail panel in place and push it against the door to snap it back on.

2008 Ford Fusion Wing Mirror Replacement


I checked Ford Focus mirror replacement and it seems to be the same. This is for the manual, unheated mirror.

Remove the mirror cover inside the door - slide a screwdriver behind the cover and pry loose carefully.

Remove the single 10mm bolt and the mirror comes free.
NB. Do not drop the bolt into the door.

Changing Door Mirror Glass XJ6(X300)


Hi

You need to put on a pair of gloves, and safety glasses. (Safety First !)
Prise off the broken mirror from the plastic base that it is stuck too.
Give the plastic a clean with nail polish remover or similar.
Peel off the backing on new mirror glass, and carefully stick it on.

Good Luck !

Side View Mirror Wiring


Just try matching from the outside to the outside, middle to middle, etc. or use a continuity tester against each pair until the light up. Solder the wires, do not use wire nuts.

Help to Replace Driver AND Passenger Exterior Mirrors 02 Impala


I used google to do a search for this and typed in "instructions replace side mirror". There is a guide on e-bay that pops right up and it gives you pretty detailed instructions. They are not vehicle specific but should give you all the information that you need. The web page says How to replace a broken side mirror on your car-associated content. I hope this helps, it looked like it had plenty of great information.
