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

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 .

How do you fix/reconnect a broken side view mirror on a Hyundai Sonata?


You'll have to buy a new one, as side mirrors cannot be repaired. Google "2009 sonata mirror" and find a good price online. Make sure to buy the correct side--RH is passenger side, LH is driver's side. Cost is about $65. If your mirrors are painted, you will also need to have it painted, as they only come in black.

sorry :o(

How can I replace broken mirror glass volvo S40 2002?


You can replace it a couple of ways, my wife broke my side mirror with a paint ball gun, so I just cut a piece of mirror and glued it in the holder. Worked great for years, Till I found a new mirror, and took the real glass out and snapped it in the holder. But you can remove the holder by taking off the plastic cover inside the car behind the mirror, unbolt the holder and hang on to it, it is heavy. You might have to pull the door panel to get the wire disconnected. Then you can either replace it or work on it easily. Hope this helps.

LH mirror housing broken. How do I take it off?


The mirror has bolts made to the encapsulation of the mirror housing. Directly behind the mirror, remove the inner door panel. The mirror is fastened to the door with 10 mm nuts, unplug the electrical supply and replace with new mirror (or salvage is usually just as good - even better than some aftermarket parts).
