you will need to remove the inner door panel to get to the nuts on the inside of the door panel to remove the mirror.if its just the mirror that is broken(reflective)then a glass place can replace the reflective part by gluing a new one onto the old housing.
I just replaced a passenger side unpowered mirror on my 2001 S-10 pickup. It might be the same for your Grand Am. There are two screws that attach the mirror to the mirror base. Remove these two screws and the mirror can be removed from the base. I did all the work from the outside. The screws are "star" head screws on my S-10, so you will need the correct tool. The other problem is that I had to buy a complete mirror assembly because they don't sell just the mirror portion. I went to a junkyard, they did not have a used mirror but had a new one at a much lower cost than a dealer's cost.
First you need to remove the door skin , once this is removed you should see three screws that attach the mirror, remove them....if it is a heated mirror you will need to unplug and replug the new one in before attaching the new mirror...hope this helps
Pop off the trim package. Mine has the speaker tweeter in it.It is
going to be the little triangle shaped one on the inside of the door.
It should pull straight back and off. Disconnect the speaker wire plug
wire, if so equipped. You say it is a manual adjust mirror so there
should only be the one electrical plug. If it is an electric mirror
there will be two.Carefully pull out the insulation. There are three
star head screws, (torques head), that you will thread off. Reinstall
in the reverse order and you are done. Be careful not to over-tighten
the screws or you will break the mounts again. It should be just snug
enough to hold firmly.
You need to take of the door panel so you can get to the attaching hardware to remove to old one. Do not cut the wires until you look inside to see if there is a plug to connect to the new mirror. the broken wires you are talking about will come off with the old mirror. I hope this will help you.
There is a panel on the inside of the door where the mirror is.
That has to come off.
In some cases the door panel has to come off also.
Under the mirror panel there are nuts that hold the mirror on. Remove the nuts unplug the harness and install the new one.
Yes you have to pull of the door panel. Nothing complicated once that is done. The wiring plug should be visible after you get the door panel off. Unplug it, and remove the bolts holding the mirror on. Reverse to put the new one on.
