You can get the glass seperatley. It should come with the wires on the back that you plug into the mount. If your mirror "self dims" then its going to be around $100, if it does not (meaning it doesnt automatically dim when a bright light hits it) you should be looking at around $30.

How do you remove the glass from the side mirror enclosure?


Hi, this mirror glass is held in with plastic tabs, in a circular pattern, on the back side of the mirror.Wearing proper gloves, simply grab the glass behind the black backing, and pull out on it, BE CAREFUL OF BROKEN GLASS. Once the glass is out, remove any wires that may be attached, by simply pulling them off of the connectors, replace the glass, and pop back in.

How do take off the passenger side door panel and replace my 2003 buick park avenue side view mirror?


You shouldn't have to take off the panel, there is usually a black plastic cover right behind the mirror, pop it off, it will expose 3 or 4 bolts to the mirror, It is heavy, so don't let it fall, It has wires in it and sometimes a cable, get the mirror off and replace it, The glass pops right out, If you just need the glass, Get a small flat bar in there or a slim piece of hardwood, Pop the glass right out, and pop in a new one. Hope this helps.

How do you replace the exterior mirror glass on a 2007 chevy tahoe. I have the the replacement glass portion but not sure how to release the broken portion from the mirror motor. Thanks for any info!


i just replaced the passenger side on mine and this is what i did.

1. on the back side of the mirror housing is a half moon shaped plastic piece. gently remove that from the housing, exposing a portion of the back side of the mirror.

2. disconnect the two wires (remember rt and lf). carefully, with a pry tool, apply pressure on the center of the back side of the mirror, it will pop loose.

3. once the mirror is off there should be a round plastic piece attached to the back side of the mirror. on the passenger side there is a tab in the upper left side. lift up on the tab and slide the plastic piece down...it should slide off.

4. once you have the plastic piece off it goes on the back of the new mirror in the opposite way. you line up the four cross tabs and slide the mirror up until the tab grabs it.

5. put the mirror back in the housing by lining the circle (on back side center of mirror plate) with the center of the mirror housing. genlty apply pressure on the center of the mirror (i had to hit it firmly with the palm of my hand) unitl it snaps into place.

6. once it snaps into place you can reconnect the two wires to the back of the mirror and install the back side plastic housing......DONE

Need to replace the passenger side mirror,glass only. does anybody know if the plastic backing plate the mirror is attached to pops out of the holder? If it does, it would make it easier to fit the new...


Just replaced the mirror glass myself. Don't have all the answers but can tell you this much.

The passenger side mirror on my 2004 Odyssey was hit by a projectile which caromed off the upper door frame. Left standing was a functional mirror base (motor driven part which has four, short, horizontally mounted rods) still attached to the mirror shroud and a separate assembly of the mirror glass and plastic mount.

I purchased the mirror glass alone online from a Honda dealer, removed the old mirror glass from the mount, and mounted the new mirror to the mount. To do this, look at the tabs which hold the mirror to the mount, and slide the mirror across the mount in the obvious direction. It will take some force. I had the benefit of having the mount/mirror glass blown out of the mirror shroud so it wasn't too difficult. If the broken mirror is still mounted to the mount and inside the shroud, push the bottom of the mirror inward so the top edge of the mirror can clear the top of the shroud. Then pull up on the mirror glass to slide it off the mount. This will take some force but fortunately, the mirror glass is already broken so you don't have to be gentle. Wear gloves or protect you hands while doing this.

Reverse the process for install the new mirror glass.

Now for my key tip. I had to remount the plastic mount/mirror glass assembly onto the motorized mirror base. I could see that it snapped in, with proper alignment, by pushing straight in. I applied quite a bit of force and simply could not get it to snap in place. My solution, was to put the assembly in a 200F oven for 15 minutes to heat the plastic to make it more flexible. Using paper towels to handle to avoid burns, I aligned the closures with the four, small, horizontally mounted rods, and with a moderate amount of force, the assembly snapped into place.

Hope this makes sense. I believe most people will only have broken mirror glass and not have the plastic mount with mirror glass come off the motorized base as I did.

How do i remove and replace the driver's side mirror?


If the metal pivot arm is not broken you can just replace the glass and plastic housing. To remove the glass you tilt the glass down towards the floor and use a wide plastic or wood bladed object to prise from behind, the glass should pop off from its clips. Remember to catch it if its not damaged. To remove the housing once the glass is out you need to look underneath the mirror unit, there you will find a small plastic bung, gently prise it out and then use a long small flat bladed screwdriver straight up inside the hole and lever towards the front of the car whilst lifting straight up on the plastic housing, this should then lift off. To replace just slot the new housing on and click into place then fit the glass back, remember to connect the wires first if it is a heated glass.
If the metal pivot arm is broken then you will find the remaining screws behind the plastic trim inside the vehicle.
