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

How do I change the glass in the outside mirror on a 2003 Lincoln towncare


behind the piece of glass there is a black plastic that the glass sticks to if you push it to one side stick your fingers behind it and pull you will disconnect the glass retainer from the mirror motors bracket do this on both sides of the mirror and make sure you don't lose the little barrel shaped arms that snap the glass retainer into the window motor housing where glove for broken glass splinters sometimes it's best to put those barrel arms in then press the glass in but I would say it's better to try to fit the arms in while attached to the glass it depends how big your hands/fingers are for the space allowed to get it in GOOD LUCK STEPHEN

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.

How to replace passenger side mirror. Glass is


You can usually just replace the mirror, any commercial auto-glass store has the glass you need. sometimes it is necessary to replace the mirror and its backing (a plastic frame which snaps into the adjustable motor) you don't need to replace the whole mirror unless the housing is broken.

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.

normally, if the mirror glass is broken you can remove this clip from the back or it is still in place and only the glass is out. If the mirror glasses are jumped out the system and you lost it completed, there is a chance to get replacement from the authorized dealership (replacement mirror glasses with attached clips). After marked parts are a great way to save money, but it works not all the time.
