Question about 2001 BMW 325

1 Answer

How do you install a passenger side mirror glass in a 2003 BMW 325i. The mirror housing is still fine, and the movement mechanism still works. The mirror housing received a hard knock and the glass was popped out. There are two wires as the mirror is heated and they look to be intact. I'm not the most hand with my hands so I just want to know if it's a simple plug and play or do I have to remove the housing.

How to replace glass in Driver side rear view mirror?


Not sure of the X5 but on the M3 the mirrored glass portion of the driver side view mirror just "popped" onto the motor carrier in the housing. It was a little nerve racking removing and replacing the glass (my motor had died) but with care its possible. Suggest going to RealOEM.com site and enter vehicle vin information then go to vehicle trim and then outside mirror for details of assembly

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.

Please rate this answer. Thank you.

Burned out headlight/bulb bmw 1991 325i 2dr


It's a bulb replacement. If it's anything similar to my Audi, there is a cover on the back of the headlight housing that you pop off. Then you can reach in, pull the wire connector off the bulb, and unclip a metal retainer over the bulb, and pull the bulb out. Installation of the new one is the reverse. Just be SURE not to touch the glass part of the bulb. Skin oils can cause a halogen bulb to burn very hot and burn out very quickly. If you do touch the glass, wipe it gently but thoroughly on a cotton cloth to clean it off before you install it.
