Housing or just the mirror? Most mirrors are glued to their holders these days.

KKing, Just pry the switch out gently with a blunt blade/screwdriver, remove plug and plug new switch in, push new plug back into place.
Check the attached link, will show what switch looks like and show the side clips that are holding it in place. Good luck.

I have a Toyota Revo GLX, model 2001 with powered side mirror. From stored position (folded on the side of the window) to open position ( when you are going to use the side mirror), there is a clicking and...

Hi MVN, Seems that the washer is from the securing hollow mount. There should be a nut somewhere inside too. The mirror is electrically operated not hydrolic. The mirror will probably break if you try to remove it from the housing, but as to save it you will have to do so anyway, you may as well try. If you are successful, you can reattach it using double sided mirror tape, but make sure it is a good quality tape. Adjust it to the maximum and insert a flat blade between it and the mounting and try un-clipping it. If it does not break you should be able to replace and lock the housing back in place, but it will be difficult. To replace the mirror you will need to remove the door panel and the small cover on the inside of the door adjacent to the mirror mount. It clips into place and is gently levered off. Inside are three screws holding the assembly in place. Disconnect the electrics inside the door panel and then remove the screws. Fit back the replacement and reassemble. Regards John

Side mirror and radio not funtioning at all toyota corolla 2001

Probably a blown fuse. Find the fuse box, (make sure car if not running, key out of ignition), open fuse box cover. The cover usually has a description of what fuse does each power task. Find the radio/ACC fuses and removing them one at a time (don't have 2 out at once), hold them up to the light and look for a broken band inside the fuse. If you find one, replace it with a new one of the same size and amperage. It is the cheapest place to start.

I have a 2003 volkswagen jetta. i need to remove the glass on the front drivers side and front passenger side doors and replace it with new glass.after i remove the door panel how do i do this?

The panels have 3 t20 torx screws on the bottom and one philips head near the mirror. Under pull handles there are 3 philips on the drivers and 2 philips on the passengers sides. Pull the panels from the bottom and lift the panels up. There are 2 black rubber plugs in each door, pop each plug out and the glass is held in place to the clips on each side with either a 10 mm bolt or t30 torx bolt. Move the glass to the point where you can see the bolts, loosen, but don't remove the bolts. Once loose, you can pull the glass loose. Once loose, lower the window a bit, angle the rear of the glass up and pull it out. The glass may be epoxied in place, as VW had a problem with windows coming loose. If so, try to pop the rubber in the clamp loose (above the bolts you see through the holes) and reinstall it with the window removed.
