If your mirror is not powered the change is very simple. From the outside of the door look up from the bottom of mirror, you will see three holes. Unscrew the three attachment screws and remove the top portion of the mirror. I just changed out the passenger side mirror on a 2001 S-10 using this procedure. Only problem is that you have to purchase the complete mirror unless you can find just the top portion at a junkyard.

Those 3-screws are torx, you'll need a T20 bit. They are recessed about 1 3/4", so need an extension in order to reach them. I've got one of those magnetic extensions, but the diameter of it prevented from reaching the screw nearest the door. Other than that, it's 5-minute fix.

I stumbled upon your solution a few days ago and it worked a treat, thanks m8! I was not looking forward to removing the door panel. I found a mirror at one of those auto part recycle places, cost me $40 and it was as good as new. I can't imagine what the dealer would've charged.

SOURCE: passenger side mirror

If you need to replace the entire mirror - it's a little involved. First you need to take the upper extension panel off from behind the mirror (black triangle) - just pull it of starting at the top. It will snap back on later. Next - remove the different screws holding the door panel in place (not the ones behind the mirror yet!) One is under the handle (pull it out and pull out the filler panel - small plastic thing that has a hole to pry it out). Then take off the rear red light - also pops off - and remove that screw. Finally - pick up the rubber filler where your fingers pull the door shut and remove these torx bolts.

Now is the tricky part. Snapp off the entire interior panel. It will pop off - but very difficult. It will sound like it is breaking! Start at the outer bottom corner - and use a door panel remover tool - check Amazon or E-bay - to keep from breaking things. Pull it out from all around the bottom and sides and then lift it up over the door lock. It good to have a friend help here. The panel will still be held on by a cable - that is your door release - leave it alone and let the panel hang by it (or better, put a box under it to rest on).

Now...remove the three bolts holding the mirror on - have a friend help hold the mirror while you do this or it will scratch your new car! Since the inner panel is off - you can also disonnect the mirror plus and remove it. It sounds silly - but the only reason to remove the door panel is to unplug it!

Get you new mirror and reverse the steps.

If you are just replacing the glass (non-heated) - get a replacement from the dealer. Adjust the mirror all the way to the inside and reach behind and pop it off. CAREFUL - put tape over the entire glass as it will likely break even more! Remove your connectors if heated - and replace (and reconnect) with your new glass. It just pops back on!

Replacing glass is easy - just be careful of cheap imitations on e-abay). And never use cheap flat glass on the passenger side! The DOT has special requirements for mirror glass - buy it from or your local dealer.

SOURCE: how do you remove the door panel?

All GM's cars and trucks are relatively the same. U just need a few tools to remove the panels without damage. one is a tool called a button popper.
1. there will be a screw inside where the door handle is. u need to remove this .
2 starting from the top left go around the outside the panel to see if there and screws holding the panel on.
3. starting with the bottom left insert the tool and lift up on the panel. u should here a pop when u lifted it enough. next goto to the bottom right. and do the same thing.
4. grab both bottom pats and gently outwards.. if its not popping as u are pulling the panel dont force it to do it. check to make sure there are no other screws hidden anywhere. (inside little plastic covers. the center area) repeat the procedure
5. when the panel is loose, pull out slightly and push upwards. this will separate the panel from the door and glass.
u can then see where the electrical connections are and complete the part u are doing.

Im trying to replace the passenger mirror, need to

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. Once the panel is off, you will see two or three bolts securing the mirror assembly onto the door
