    1. Remove the mirror glass:
    1. Fold the mirror glass forwards and inwards as illustrated.
    2. Grasp and pull the mirror glass lengthways until it releases.
    3. Work the glass out.

    1. Remove electric motor: Remove the 3 screws from behind the mirrored glass.
    2. Separate the connectors
    1. NOTE Remember the positions of the connectors.
    2. Remove the mirror motor.
  • If the glass is the only component that is damaged, there is a glass only replacement that has an adhesive back and will fit directly over the old glass, covering the damage. This material is available at most auto supply stores. I'm not sure how bad the damage is, but I figure it was worth mentioning to save you time and labor.

    The replacement lens will have the plastic backing. There are two basic points to follow when fitting.
    1. Apply equal pressure over the mirror but only where there are clips at the back of the lens... example, if you press the corners the glass will bend then crack.

    2. Apply grease or washing up liquid to all the clipping points to make life easier.

    PS You can buy stick on a lens which simply goes over the top of the broken one


    Kind regards

    For an '96 white striped wire goes on top. If you are thinking about doing this yourself I say go for it, You have to remove the piece of trim on the top of the door panel in corner near where you would look out to the mirror.

    Second, remove a piece of trim on the interior handle ((2) torx fasteners within that handle. Lastly, pop out the "buttons" that hold the door panel on. I have heard them called clips on other posts. Other posts state that it is hard not to bust a couple of them....I can tell you that is true. Going to have to buy a few tomorrow at the dealer. On these buttons I found that you can take a very narrow screwdriver and press in the middle of the button to release. I think they are one time use fasteners but this releases the clip. Once you have released the clip you can pull the panel off. After that it was one bolt to remove the entire mirror, a multi-pin connector and put it all back together. 20-25 minutes.

    Hope helps.

    Mt drivers side wing mirror glass has popped out,


    If the glass broke when it fell out any windshield repair shop can make and install a new mirror. If it didn't break go to the hardware store and get a squeeze tube of bathtub silicone sealer and a roll of black electrical tape if you don't have any. Run a bead of silicone around the edge of the mirror back and a few dots in the center. Stay in about a 1/2 inch so it wont bleed out when you press it on. Using a couple of blocks of wood or plastic or anything non-metallic on the mirror face, make 2 or 3 wraps around the mirror and mirror bracket with the black tape. Stretch the tape as you wrap to put some tension on it but not real tight, just snug. Do this on both ends of the mirror and leave it for a day to let the silicon set up and cure. Then remove the tape and shims and you shouldn't have any more problems with that mirror. Hope this helps.
