Remove the negative battery cable from the battery. Unclip the wire cover from the mirror and then pull it off the wire. Remove the 7-pin wire connector from the rear of the mirror. Grip the mirror and mirror base and rotate it through 90 degrees.(the mirror will now point toward the door) Slide the mirror and base toward the dash to remove its from the mount.
To replace, hold the mirror at 90 degrees(pointing to the door), slide the mirror back onto the base and rotate to its correct position. Reconnect the 7-pin connector. Refit the cover (snap it over the wire) then snap the cover into place on the mirror, feed the wire into the cover and push the end of the cover under the headlining. Move the mirror around to see that the cover is secure. If not then you dont have enough slack on the wire.
Refit the battery connection. Switch the ignition to "on" and check the indicator on the left side of the mirror. It should be lit. If not press the button on the far left of the mirror. Cover the sensor on the rear of the mirror and see that it darkens.

Compass direction wrong


Compass Calibration
Before calibrating the compass, drive the vehicle to an area that is magnetically clean or free of large metallic objects. Verify there are no magnetized objects on the inside or outside of the vehicle close to the mirror.

Start the engine.
Press and hold the switch for the compass, which may be depicted as COMP, COMPASS, or On/Off (w/UE1) depending on the type of mirror on the vehicle, until the letter "C" or "CAL" is displayed.
Drive the vehicle in circles at a speed of less than 8 km/h (5 mph) until the "C" or "CAL" is replaced by a proper vehicle heading. The calibration procedure is now complete.
Compass Magnetic Variation Adjustment
Magnetic variation adjustments are required when the compass displays a constant error in heading. Variation is the difference between magnetic north and true north due to geographical location.

I have a 1999 DII and have just replaced the auto dim mirror with a new style with compass, how do I remove the old mirror


The mirror can be removed by carfully pulling down towards the dash.
unplug the wiring block and re install the new mirror. In my case the wiring block was a miss match so I cut the wires and used generic connectors to reconnect the power.

Interior rearview mirror anti-glare failure


Problem experienced w/2001 OB Wagon. The 'mirror' w/auto adjusting for anti-glare is actually an LCD. When they go 'murky' it is the LCD layers delaminating. Not repairable -- remove and replace.

Custom Rear view mirror


Hiya...ALL factory-installed rearview mirrors are installed with different wires due to options.
About 6 different rearview mirrors are installed with those options such as On-Star, light, compass, and those features which use different wires....THIS CANNOT be modified with different rearview mirror....**for example, the Equinox owner attempt to pull out a factory-installed base rearview mirror and put in different one that has compass/temperature built into the rearview mirror**

However, the wires are located inside the front headliner which requires removing the sunvisor (and possible removal of interior plastic trim part at the left/right ends of the windshield) prior to pull the headliner down, and a small metal philips or torx screw is used to secure the rearview mirror onto the bracket glued to the windshield.

The best solution is to leave the original factory-installed rearview mirror in place.
