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.

Please describe how to replace a 2004 focus wing mirror


You have to remove the sail cover that's on the opposite side of the mirror. It is held on by just some plastic lips on the edges. Pry off carefully. There is one speed nut at the very front of the mirror and one large nut in the center. That's it. Don't drop the big nut into the door panel.

Need to change the wing mirror on my ford focus c max but dont know how


remove the plastic cover directly behind the mirror on the inside of the door, it just clips off normally with a flat blade or knife (Blunt knife if possible as a sharp one may cut the upholstery)
Once removed you should be able to see the retaining bolts that hold the mirror to the door.
If you have electric mirrors there should be a multi wire electrical plug you will have to disconnect before removing the mirror.
Hope this helps

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.

How do I replace my Ford Focus drivers wing mirror ?


You have to first remove the door panel, on mine there are 3 screws on the bottom and several clips all around it. After removing the panel you should see 2 or 3 bolt heads right behind the mirror, you need to use an extension and socket to remove them. remove the bolts and pull the mirror away from the door, unhook the wires, or cable and reverse to reinstall the new one, it took me about an hour to replace mine.
