Right mirror was smashed & now both mirrors(?) get adjusted,not 1


Hi, try to see if the cables that enter the right mirror case have any damaged insulation due to collision. But before this check a menu at SETTINGS\CONVENIENCE\ about mirrors that enables a synchronized adjustment of both mirrors. This should be set at "individual".

How do you remove just glass from drivers side mirror?


I don't know your vehicle. However, a few months ago one of the side mirrors was broken on our pickup truck (a Chevy Silverado). We had the glass shop put in the new mirror and they just glued the new mirror on top of the broken one.
