Question about 2003 Kia Spectra
The LH (drivers) side mirror (manual not power) was broken off and is hanging by a couple of cables. I have located a replacement, but have no Idea how to remove the old one and install the new one.
On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door

The driver door module (DDM)
The passenger door module (PDM)
The rear door module (RDM)
The LH front power door lock switch
The RH front power door lock switch
The LH front door lock actuator
The RH front door lock actuator
The LH rear door lock actuator
The RH rear door lock actuator
The remote control door lock receiver (RCDLR)
The power door serial data circuit
The class 2 serial data circuit
The DRVMDL Fuse - 10 amp
The PDM Fuse - 10 amp
The RRINMDL Fuse - 10 a
Class 2 and Power Door Serial Data Links
The class 2 and power door data circuits are both serial data links. The serial data circuits replace cables in the vehicle by multiplexing (time-sharing) data to and from each device over a single wire referenced to ground. If the power door serial data is lost, both the rear door module (RDM) and the passenger door module (PDM) enters the sleep mode. With the RDM and the PDM in sleep mode, no power door operations are possible.
Your best bet is to take it to the dealer or an ASE certified repair shop .
