Question about 1996 Volvo 850

1 Answer

I just want to replace my mirror glass which was broken not the whole unit. There are some wires attached to the actual glass unit (for heat) and I'm not sure how to detach the existing wires from the two little metal peices on the mirror. The replacement mirror came with the two metal connectors. Do I need a special tool?

They just pull off (small spring clip)and just push on to refit, press in the centre of the glass to click fit the mirror.

I have a 2009 dodge nitro. My mirror was knocked off is there a way to replace just the mirror or do I have to replace the whole unit? Thank you for your time.


Hi
Most likely you will have to replace the whole unit.
if just the glass is broken then you can get a universal mirror glass and stick it on previous glass.
i hope that helps

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 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.

2003 GMC sierra side view mirror glass replacement


That dependso on if the housing itself is broken then yes. If the face plate that is attached to the mirror itself is flapping around then maybe. If it is just the mirror, just go to your neighborhood auto glass shop and but a "Ready-Cut" mirror for a small amount of money. they come already cut to fit perfectly. As for removing the old glass, take a very small flat screw driver and pry the glass away from the face plate. Once completely cleaned out use the adhesive from the ready cut and place them on the face plate. Next press the new mirror onto the flace pate, being careful not to press to hard or it will snap it in half.

How about just replacing the broken glass instead of the whole mirror head. Here is a site I have used with success, they sell OEM glass mirror lenses.

you can google an exploded view of your wiring harness that leads to the wring of your mirror. However this will probably not be a compatible way of doing it. The mirror is disigned differently.
