1999 Ford Falcon - How to fix/replace the mirror glass and backing plate of the driver side mirror unit?

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 door mirror glass on 2007 VW Golf Plus

It should just pop off if you get something in behind the acctual glass and gently lever it you dont need to get the rear casing off at all. If its heated the wiring will be simple bayonet connectors easy to take off/on. Gently push the new glass into position and readjust teh mirror from the cabin as it will have moved!

Need to get a "backing

I need the same thing for a 2004 Explorer Sportrac. I can't find the "backing plate" either. Only the glass. No junkyard will sell me only the plate and glass. I did find a complete mirror assembly (housing, gasket, glass) for $37.89. This includes shipping. I got it from It just arrived today and looks to be perfect. I have not installed it yet. Hope this helps you out.

How do you remove the glass from the side mirror enclosure?

Hi, this mirror glass is held in with plastic tabs, in a circular pattern, on the back side of the mirror.Wearing proper gloves, simply grab the glass behind the black backing, and pull out on it, BE CAREFUL OF BROKEN GLASS. Once the glass is out, remove any wires that may be attached, by simply pulling them off of the connectors, replace the glass, and pop back in.

How do take off the passenger side door panel and replace my 2003 buick park avenue side view mirror?

You shouldn't have to take off the panel, there is usually a black plastic cover right behind the mirror, pop it off, it will expose 3 or 4 bolts to the mirror, It is heavy, so don't let it fall, It has wires in it and sometimes a cable, get the mirror off and replace it, The glass pops right out, If you just need the glass, Get a small flat bar in there or a slim piece of hardwood, Pop the glass right out, and pop in a new one. Hope this helps.

Mirror popped loose on my 2004 Sienna

if you push the glass gently to either the left or right you should be able to see a couple of screws that hold all the mirror working parts in place.
As all these parts are made from plastic it is possible that a plastic part has broken and allowed the mirror to come out
Hope this has helped
