Drivers door mirror problem

Hi, my mirror has been knocked and though intact is only being held in place by the power cable. Presumably I remove the interior triangle of trim to get at the fixing screws- but how? And could the lolling mirror be refixed to the base or is it a complete replacement job? Many thanks for any advice! Laurence

Interior door top trim has to be removed then the plastic triangular trim can be slid rearwards for removal. Then you can get at the mounting screws.

Need to replace drivers side rear view mirror, powered. I have the new mirror, just need to know how t install it.


Hi,
You remove the door panel on the inside and it is bolted on from the inside. One wire clip and 3 bolts. Takes longer to remove and replace the door panel than replace the mirror....look for a hidden screw under the armrest , under the window/door lock button panel and sometimes behind the reflector or light on the bottom of door..Usually there are 3-4 screws and then the rest of the panel is held on by plastic clips. Get the screws out, then work a flat screwdriver or putty knife around the sides and bottom of panel, then lift upwards to get the top sealing side out of the track where the window runs.....Mike

Need to replace drivers side power mirror on 1999


Remove that plastic piece at the top of the door panel, ( it just unsnaps straight out), use a small screwdriver or putty knife to help pry it up, it's held in place by plastic clips so be gentle.
Unplug the connector from the mirror,
Remove the nuts and the mirror assembly will come off, don't let it fall.
Installation is the reverse.

How to replace passenger side power mirror on 1998 ford ranger XLT? Hit another vehicle and knocked mirror off.


On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls and mirror. Then you can remove the bolts securing the mirror housing onto the door. (I assume that part is still intact).

If it's just the mirror piece and backing that fell out of the housing, then on the inside of the housing, you should see two to four clips that secure the pivot point and two rods that control the pitch of the mirror. You may be able to just 'jam' the mirror backing back in. But the rods need to be secured to the back of the mirror backing in order to prevent the mirror from just falling or moving on its own

How do I remove the front door panel to replace the mirror


Normal 0 Disconnect your negative battery cable. Locate and remove the screws that hold your interior door handles in place (they may be hidden by snap in, or snap on clips). Remove the interior door handles, then disconnect the wire clips to the switches. Your panel is held in place by snap in clips; use a small pry bar to pull them from the door (try to get as close to, or directly under the clips to prevent them from tearing out of the door panel). Once the clips are pulled, pull the panel upward to remove it from the door.
Install in reverse.

If you don't have power windows you will have to remove the manual window crank. It is held in place by a clip on the back side of the base. To remove the clip, you will need a small hook (kind of like a knitting needle). Put the hook in behind the base, and grab the clip and pull it off. To replace it, slide the clip back on the window crank, and snap it back on the door.

Side View Mirror Installation instructions needed


For a 2005 Honda Pilot, I am a complete Amateur and I had no problem installing this mirror.

1) Lower the window, and only remove the Interior MIRROR panel, NOT the entire DOOR Panel, as some sites my recommend.
2) Once the Interior Panel is removed, the power cable is attached to the mirror, remove this cable.
3) There are 3 Bolts that are BLACK (atleast in my vehicle) that need to be removed.
3) Once the bolts are removed, the mirror should come off easily.
4) Place the new mirror in place of the old one and secure all three bolts, and then secure the power cable.
5) Then place the interior panel back.

That is it!

Door mirror


Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Initially, do a visual inspection with particular attention to:
  • the swivel point of the door mirror and its base;
  • often the movable portion has a locking ball with spring that sits on notches on the fixed/bas portion. These determines the lock and folded positions;
If nothing is cracked or broken, then presumably it is just the lock and very much repairable. It would be requiring more time and attention removing and dis-assembling the door mirror than the actual repairs itself.

If all else fails, you may be better off seeking an on-site qualified professional.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
