    how do I get to the retention nut behind the mirror?

  • roydb1 May 04, 2010

    Sorry if I was not clear but it's the retention circular nut for lack of a better term behind the mirror. This nut holds the entire mirror assembly to the arm that you mentioned is attached behind the small panel on the inside of the truck door. make sense?

    The nut I was talking about is behind the mirror.

The mirror element just snaps in and out, it is held in by ball and socket joints, pull evenly on the mirror element and it will "snap out" be patient and use a steady buy hard pull, it doesn't come out easy.

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. To open the mirror you’ll require a plastic trim pry tool and 10 millimeter socket wrench. Power the window in down position and turn the ignition key to on position. Turn the ignition key back to the off position and remove the key from the ignition. Gently pry the upper corner trim glide covering the interior side of the door panel opposite the side mirror with a plastic trim tool to remove it. Gently pull the foam insulator exposed from under the trim glide by hand. Lift the side mirror wire harness out of the access hole until the plug connection is visible. Disconnect the junction between the wire harness plug and the side mirror plug by disengaging the retaining lock and then pulling it apart. Use the 10 millimeter socket wrench to tight the three mirror stud retaining nuts and replace all the things in reverse. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

    yes that makes sense

    if the part in question is the one you see here then again, the only thing you can tighten are the nuts that go through the door

    the nut BEHIND the mirror is not serviceable

    that's not to say you can't fix it, but you'll probably have to disassemble the mirror to do so and as such, the mirror assembly is not serviceable

    therefore you probably will have to glue the pieces back together after you are done


    good luck

The windshield wiper arm on the drivers' side of my 1999 S10 went erratic. It is all over the place. The passenger side is fine. Need help fixing it. Thanks


At the base of the arm there will be a plastic cap. Pull up on it and there will be a nut that holds the arm to the wiper linkage. It is usually a 15mm or 13mm. With the arm in the proper place tighten the nut. That should take care of it.

How to replace rearview mirrors on yukon 1996


The replacement of outside rearview mirrors is straight-forward and can be done in an hour or so. If you need new power mirrors, first shop with local body parts suppliers in your area. The after-market mirrors are nearly identical and can be purchased for about $20-$30 per side. Remove the plastic triangular cover over the inside of the mirror by lifting up at base and then release clip at the top which is an upward motion off of a slot in the rear of the triangle. Then pull out the foam insulation carefully. The 3 nuts are 10mm and a long scket works best. For the one at the very front, you will have to use an open end wrench to loosen the nut. There is not much room for a socket. Be carefull to not drop the nuts down the inside of the door, because you don't want to remove the door panel and then the inner metal panel to get them out. If you lose them, buy new ones or replace with proper treaded ones in your garage. After the three nuts are off you need to disconect the wiring. Stop here and make sure you have enough slack in the wiring to be able to hold the female end securely, while you refit your new mirror. I took a piece of wire an dwrapped it around the female end to keep it within reach to re-attach the wiring after the nuts are tightened. Then just replace your foam insulation, and install the triangular cover and you're all set.

I need to know the distance that the drivers side mirror protrudes from the curvature of the door? and also if the outside drivers mirror is molded plastic into the frame of the car?


The outside mirrors attach to the door frame using 3 nuts that attach to studs that are part of the mirror. You can access the attachments by opening the door and removing the triangular shaped plastic trim piece, removing a piece of foam insulation and then you can see the three nuts to remove.

Driver side wiper arm moves only a little


The cap pulls off, try to pry it with a screwdriver. then set the arm where it needs to be and tighten the nut under the cap. This is common, the nut usually just loosens.

03 Taurus wiper problem


What I would suggest you do is the following:

1) Remove the driver side wiper (arm & blade).
2) Start the car and turn on the wipers.
3) When the passenger wiper is straight up and down .. turn off the car. This leaves the wiper in position.
4) Re-install the drivers side wiper and put it back on so its position is the same as the passenger - making them parallel

Start the car and test

Side mirror is coming loose from where the mount connects to the body. The top section is what is loose. Nothing hit this so I am not sure why its loose or how to tighten it. Thanks


You'll probably have to remove the sail panel (the triangular trim piece on the inside of the door which is positioned where the mirror base is). When you do that, you'll see that the mirror itself usually has studs that come through from the outside, and there are nuts on the inside that tighten down onto them to hold the mirror. Make sure that all the nuts are tight. If not, tighten them down.

What may have happened though, is that someone could've hit the mirror when you weren't around, and damaged something. It wouldn't always immediately sag or fall off, so it could've happened awhile back and you're just now seeing it.

Chances are though that the mounting nut/stud is the issue, and you'll be able to fix it this way.
