Mirrors How do I remove the tube that holds the mirror? I know how to remove the tube from the body housing, but I can't find a way to get to the bolt behind the mirror. I need to install longer tubes for towing a trailer. Thanks

First you do not need to replace the whole mirror just buy what is called mirror extensions they attach to the existing mirrors &/or you can get the ones that attach right to the truck

Thermostat replacment 2003 chevy cavalir


3.1 engine. It is under the throttle body. Remove the throttle body. four bolts and two hoses. Two bolts hold the T stat housing. remove them. Then wiggle the housing and T stat out and replace. It will come out and go back in. Make sure the T stat is in place before tightening up, you can break the housing.
2.4 engine, the T stat is under the car on the backside of the engine, at the water pump. Drain the radiator first. Then remove the bolt that holds the metal tube from the middle of the engine. Remove the lower radiator hose and drain some more coolant. Look where the metal tube connects to the water pump. two bolts remove them, this is where the T stat is. I don't do these anymore. even refuse at work...

I have malfunctioning electric-driven exterior towing mirrors on a 1999 ford f-350. How to diagnose/fix? Mirrors respond only to right adjust; no response on up/down or left adjust.


there is a separate motor for up/down and another for left/right adjust. The glass is serviceable but not the motors, built into the frame of the mirror body.

Can i buy just the bracket to hold the drivers side mirror. The mirror is intack.


most places sell the bracket (housing) along with the mirror and backing. The tricky part is trying to separate the backing from the housing as the pivot point and a bunch of clips and metal springs holding it on. Usually if you remove the backing, it's really hard to get it back on without breaking something.
Safest and fastest IMO would be the following:
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 remove the bolts securing the mirror onto the door and disconnect the cable from the mirror

You'll have to replace the entire assembly if you're missing the mounting piece that the mirrors sit on inside the housing... You'll need to remove the door panel in order to remove the panel that's right beside the mirror on the inside of the door and remove the 3 bolts holding the mirror down assembly down....

Need instructions to replace drivers side rear view mirror glass.


Outside Mirrors REMOVAL & INSTALLATION The mirrors on these models can be removed from the door without disassembling the door liner or other components. Both left and right outside mirrors may be either manual, manual remote (small lever on the inside to adjust the mirror) or electric remote. If the mirror glass is damaged, replacements may be available through your dealer or a reputable glass shop in your area. If the plastic housing is damaged or cracked, the entire unit will need to be replaced. Manual
  1. Remove the set screw and the adjustment knob, if equipped.
  2. Remove the delta cover; that's the triangular black inner cover. It can be removed with a blunt plastic or wooden tool. Don't use a metal prytool; the plastic will be marred.
  3. Fig. 1: Use a tapped ended tool to pry the trim from the mirror 89550g29.gif

  4. Depending on the style of mirror, there may be concealment plugs or other minor parts under the delta cover — remove them.
  5. Support the mirror housing from the outside and remove the three bolts or nuts holding the mirror to the door.
  6. Remove the mirror assembly.
  7. Installation is the reverse of removal.
  8. Power
    1. Turn the ignition key to the OFF position. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Wait at least 90 seconds from the time the negative battery was disconnected to start work. CAUTION
      Some models covered by this manual may be equipped with a Supplemental Restraint System (SRS), which uses an air bag. Whenever working near any of the SRS components, such as the impact sensors, the air bag module, steering column and instrument panel, disable the SRS, as described in Section 6.
    2. Remove the delta cover; that's the triangular black inner cover. It can be removed with a blunt plastic or wooden tool. Don't use a metal prytool; the plastic will be marred.
  9. Depending on the style of mirror, there may be concealment plugs or other minor parts under the delta cover — remove them.
  10. Depending on the type of door trim, you may need to remove the door inner panel to access the electrical wiring harness for the mirror.
  11. Support the mirror housing from the outside and remove the three bolts or nuts holding the mirror to the door.
  12. If the wiring to the electric mirror was not disconnected previously, detach it now. Some connectors can only be reached after the mirror is free of the door. Remove the mirror assembly.
  13. Installation is the reverse of removal. Cycle the mirror several times to make sure that it works properly.

Mirrors will not fold in.


It is a stuck motor. Water gives rust inside housing. Remove mirror and clean motor and components. This is a well known error for H2 mirrors.
