SOURCE: how do i remove and replace the driver's side mirror?

If the metal pivot arm is not broken you can just replace the glass and plastic housing. To remove the glass you tilt the glass down towards the floor and use a wide plastic or wood bladed object to prise from behind, the glass should pop off from its clips. Remember to catch it if its not damaged. To remove the housing once the glass is out you need to look underneath the mirror unit, there you will find a small plastic bung, gently prise it out and then use a long small flat bladed screwdriver straight up inside the hole and lever towards the front of the car whilst lifting straight up on the plastic housing, this should then lift off. To replace just slot the new housing on and click into place then fit the glass back, remember to connect the wires first if it is a heated glass.
If the metal pivot arm is broken then you will find the remaining screws behind the plastic trim inside the vehicle.

SOURCE: Right side mirror housing is broken,need to replace.

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door

hello there:
you're mirror replacement is really easy all you should need to do this is a Phillips screw driver and i do believe it would be a 3/8 or maybe a 7/16 socket or wrench you should have a small triangle shaped plastic cover in the corner of the window that has a screw in it you will need to remove the screw and plastic cover and you should see two nuts remove the nuts and the mirror should come right off the door look for wire connection unplug and replace the mirror install in reverse...hope this helps you out please leave a review thanks sincerely D.Jones

2002 Saturn SL2 driver side mirror glass broken


Ebay, Craigslist, and local junkyards are a good place to find used mirrors.
They have the options, based on the junk cars in their yards and they can look around in other junkyards online to find the right one. I would not think you would pay more than 20-30 dollars. I had 4 saturns and replacing the mirrors was easy, but then I have a roll around tool box and 30 years of backyard wrenching experience. Basically you remove that interior cosmetic part at the front of your window, dig through the insulation, find the bolt heads and remove them. The mirror comes off and you reverse the process to install.
