Question about Subaru Legacy

1 Answer

Hi, I have Subaru Legacy 1995 with power folding mirrors. This will sound crazy but I can't unscrew the screws holding them onto the doors no matter what I do!!! Just jammed up do you think or is there a trick to this like they need to be in the open/unfolded position ...? Never known screws like'em! Thanks...

There is a little cover on the inside of the door which you will have to remove. It basically is straight opposite where the mirror is mounted.

Underneath that you should see the bolts which hold the mirror on.

Let me know if you need more information.

How do i get the inside cover off the rear drivers side door on a 2005 liberty

couple of things to look for, if its manual window, there will be a clip (sometimes) on the lever that holds it onto the door. also, there can be screws holding on the door handles onto the door, check for them. also, most have snap clips that hold the panel onto the door, remove GENTLY they are a pain in the *** to fix if they break off and you have to put new ones back on the pannel.

hope that helps
