Broken driver side mirror on 2003 Chevy Cavalier

The driver side mirror on my 2003 Cavalier is broken. The glass is intact, but I assume a piece is missing or broken inside because the mirror always tilts down. Is this something simple I can repair myself or am I better off going to the dealer/repair shop?

There are screws and plastic in there. I totally ripped mine off pulling out of my narrow drive way in my apartment complex and all's it took was supper glue to repair it. note: don't squirt a lot and use rags below paint level on door...it will drizzle on down and it don't come off easy.. once its on your paint good luck getting the clue off..... i got about 90% off by using rubbing compound.....but now those areas look newer than the older paint on the door. good luke i hope you can fix it yourself'
can i get reply...thanks

Use a heat gun or hair dryer to heat up the glass. This will soften the glue which holds the mirror onto actuator. Gently pry the mirror off. the actuator can then be unscrewed and removed.

Go to your local auto parts store, they should be able to order just the mirror glass. Its held on with double sided tape and a little glue, you will have to scrape the old glass off with a flat screwdriver or similar.

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.
