Remove the triangular cover lining.
A) Disengage the wiring connection and insert the male end of the connector back inside door frame so it can easily be removed.
B) Caution: Be careful not to drop the mirror housing. Secure the mirror housing with one hand, remove the (3) nuts holding the mirror housing to the door frame using a 10mm socket.

Carefully remove mirror housing from door frame and set mirror housing on a cloth covered surface.

C) Push down on the upper inboard edge of glass until mirror pivots fully outward. Insert a large slotted screwdriver in between the slotted hole. Carefully pry and twist screwdriver until original mirror pops off. If heated, disconnect heater wires from heater terminals and remove mirror.

Hope helps.

Is this just the glass element?, or the glass and the plastic backing that pops into the mirror?

    the mirror just glues on to the plastic backing, remove all the old broken mirror pieces, the new mirror element has the adhesive already on it, just peal off the paper and expose the adhesive and press firmly into place

Remove the CENTER of the small mirror by breaking it through *carefully* with the needlenose pliers making sure to completely remove the entire center where the round plastic clip holds the bezel in place. (I think it should be mentioned at this point that whomever designed this mirror assembly should be drawn and quartered for their ineptitude in engineering a replaceable mirror!)

The following pix demonstrate the removal of the center of the glass, as well as unscrewing the plastic clip retainer. (It turns 1/2 turn to release - you'll see once you get the mirror broken away enough...) - I found that by hanging a plastic grocery sack over the mirror assembly that it easily catches all the pieces of mirror that come off (most is stuck on real well with the adhesive backing from the factory, but nonetheless, quite a bit pops out and falls into the bag)

http://img263.imageshack.us/img263/3249/mr3bqp5.th.jpg (http://img263.imageshack.us/my.php?image=mr3bqp5.jpg)http://img260.imageshack.us/img260/7734/mr4bei3.th.jpg (http://img260.imageshack.us/my.php?image=mr4bei3.jpg)http://img263.imageshack.us/img263/6773/mr5bmc3.th.jpg (http://img263.imageshack.us/my.php?image=mr5bmc3.jpg)

After removing the little bezel from the Big-Tow assembly, continue to break the rest of the mirror out, being *very* careful not to crack or break the bezel itself...you can't just buy this piece alone, you have to purchase the ENTIRE ASSEMBLY just to get it!!! (I know this sounds funny, but you'll catch yourself squinting so hard because you know you're breaking glass that your mouth is open - BAD IDEA, unless, of course, you like the taste of blood! - Pay attention to this!)

At this point, it's time to prep the bezel for the new mirror. Using the rubberized gloves, simply rub the adhesive off (seriously, it's ALOT easier than using an adhesive remover, or anything else for that matter - the rubberized gloves provide protection for your hands, as well as the *perfect* material for literally rubbing off the adhesive!)
Once it's free of the old adhesive, I scratched it up a bit to ensure a good contact surface. You may want to use some sandpaper, but since it was getting cold, I just ran it across my wire wheel for a couple passes...just enough to rough it up a bit.
After that, clean it real well with 91% Isopropyl Alcohol. I refuse to even buy that 76% ****...it doesn't do very well at anything, and you wouldn't want it in a wound...it's only 76% alcohol (what's the rest?) - Also wipe down the back of the new mirror with alcohol and attach the adhesive circles to it now making sure you've got them on the BACK side of the mirror.

http://img339.imageshack.us/img339/5060/mr6bmt8.th.jpg (http://img339.imageshack.us/my.php?image=mr6bmt8.jpg)http://img340.imageshack.us/img340/9092/mr8bpl0.th.jpg (http://img340.imageshack.us/my.php?image=mr8bpl0.jpg)

After that, insert the bezel back into the mirror assembly, screw the round plastic retainer clip 1/2 turn to lock it in place, then firmly but *carefully* place the mirror into the bezel and press all around where the adhesive circles are.

    I applogize. I guess they removed the pictures from that site. I'll look around and see if there are any someplace else.

    Remove the broken mirror pieces until you can see the bezel. Clean the bezel with rubbing alcohol. After it is clean and dry, then get the new mirror and adhesive and stick the new glass mirror in place.

Turn on the air bag passages side light says that the air bag is off want to turn on 2004Nissan titan


The passenger side airbag does not have a switch that you, as the operator, can turn on or off. There are sensors in the seat and seat belt system that determine when the passenger side airbag should be activated. Attached is a link to the owners manual for your vehicle. Check pages 1-20 and 1-21 for details.

Check for the tow relays in the under hood fuse box. Black box behind the battery on the passenger side. Do a web search for 'titan tow relay' for more info.

How do you remove the lens on the passenger side mirror


The lens is held on with an adhesive that will have to be pried off. Or replace entire mirror. You can easily silicone a new mirror on after you pry off old one.

What is the procedure for replacing the passenger door mirror on a 2008 Nissan Sentra?


I haven't done this on a Sentra, but I have done it on a Toyota and a Mazda and they were both the same.

I took the black plastic cover off the back of the mirror (this will be on the inside of the passenger door).

There whould be between 2 or 3 screws that you will unscrew. If it is a power mirror there will also be a little connector. Undo the connector and remove the old mirror.

Attach the new mirror and plug in connector if power mirror. Replace the screws and re attach the black cove to the inside of the door.

Hope that helps!

Replace passenger side power mirror clearance lamp (bulb only).


If you are facing the passenger side mirror adjust the top (large) mirror so that it is turning in towards the truck as far as it will go. Then look behind the mirror in the bottom righthand corner (outside bottom corner) and you will see a silver metal clip. Take a straight head screw driver and push on that clip and the lens will pop out. Then you simply unscrew the bulb holder from the lens and replace your bulb. Good luck!
