    How do I remove and repair the drivers side mirror on a 1998 Saturn SL2

  • Anonymous Jul 11, 2008

    Mine is a 2001. You just have to pull more forcefully, but evenly, so as not to snap the plastic. Working a screwdriver around the edge works well. Can any one tell me the size of the three bolts holding the mirror so I borrow the right one from my neighbor> :)

My Saturn is a 2001. I just worked a screwdriver around the rim of the plastic trim; it is held on pretty tightly by a couple of metal clips. Can anyone tell me the size tof the bolts holding the mirror (so I borrow the right socket from my neighbor :))?

Replace outside drivers mirror


As I recall , the mirror is a simple matter of removing the interior trim on the door (not the whole inner trim panel ... JUST the triagular trim piece behind the mirror) and three 10mm nuts.
There is a lime green plug on the wire harness ('98-'05) that you may have remove the upper portion of the door trim panel to reach , but as I recall it connects right near the top by the mirror... Here is a picture of the mirror and plug (note the connection wires length is aprox. 6")

Have to replace the passanger side mirror on 2000 dodge stratus. how do i go about doing this


remove the triangle trim piece on the interior side of door (usually snap on a delicate pry with a flat head screw driver will do the trick)
next remove the (3) 10mm nuts securing the mirror to the door, next unplug the mirror by squeezing the plug connector, pull the mirror of the outside of vehicle. Reverse this order during installation and you should be fine.
Note the mirror may fall and scrath the paint while the nuts are off, keep a hand on the old mirror to prevent from falling during removal

How do I remove the mirror on the driver's side of the car and replace it with a new mirror?


p, li { white-space: pre-wrap; }

Steps to follow


1.Buy the replacement mirror, making sure that it is an exact match to your vehicle's make, model and year. You can order it through your dealership. If you'd like to save more money, you can order a mirror online or buy one from a junkyard or a salvage yard that sells auto parts.

2.Roll down your window and shut your vehicle off.

3.Disconnect the battery's negative cable. This is important, because there is a risk of electrocution if you do not perform this step.

4.Take off the interior door panel by using your pry tool to remove the trim pieces. Then use the screwdriver to remove the screws holding the panel in place. You may have to remove a corner trim piece before the door panel lifts off.

5.Unplug the wiring harness if you have power-controlled mirrors. If you have manual roll-down windows, skip this step.

6.Take out the mirror bolts with either a socket wrench or a nut driver, so that you can remove the entire mirror assembly from the car.

7.Separate the actual mirror from the mirror assembly. Use a torx driver to extract the screws, and then pry the plastic tabs on the backing until the two pieces separate.

8.Attach the new mirror to the assembly by snapping it onto the backing with the tabs.

9.Put the new mirror, attached to the backing, into the mirror assembly.

10.Reverse the steps to reinstall the entire mirror assembly back onto the vehicle.

I need to replace passenger side mirror on 97 ford expedition


Both above answers are not right... I just replaced the Pass side power mirror assembly on my 97 Expedition. No heat, no directional.
The inside door panel must come off.
1. pry off interior triangular plastic trim piece inside of door at mirror area. Remove door panel screw at this area.
2. Pry off power window switch panel and remove door panel screw at this area.
3.Remove interior door light cover and remove screw at this area.
4. Remove plastic cover at door handle.
5. The interior door panel can now be lifted up to release it from it's fasteners.
6. Disconnect light and push power window switch assembly through the door panel and it can be set aside.
7. Disconnect mirror power at coupler.
8 Loosen three mirror mounting screws with 7/16 socket. DO NOT unscrew completely.. the will fall down the door cavity. Use a round magnet on holder to remove the screws completely.
9.Thread electrical connection into door panel and install mirror.
10. Smile when mirror works and drink a beer!
