Yes, you will have to take the door panel off. I'm attempting to replace the passenger side mirror at the moment and have the old one out, but can't get enough access to the bolts to attach the new one without opening up the side panel.
I'm still looking into how to do this, as I haven't found the right sequence for removing it. I'll try to post how when I figure it out, as I also hate paying for a manual for simple repairs.

    Check your local public library for a Chilton's or Motor's repair manual. Usually these are reference only, but you can copy these pages for only a few cents! Good luck!
    By the way, you may need some special pry tools or clip removal tools. Check with your local auto store on rental of these, which may be free if you buy related parts there! Have fun!

  • Push the mirror lens upward so it faces the roof of your Buick LeSabre.

  • Place the eight-pointed star head of the Torx driver into the setscrew located in the base of the rearview mirror. Turn the Torx driver counterclockwise. This releases the clamping pressure on the mirror.

  • Slide the mirror upwards to remove it from its metal bracket.

  • Place the base of the replacement mirror against the windshield, directly above the metal bracket. Slide the mirror down into the bracket. The bracket has a groove on each side into which the mirror will slide.Secure the mirror to the bracket by tightening the setscrew clockwise with the Torx driver.

    2000 Buick LeSabre died at 70mph, volt light came on when engine went, I coasted to a stop and then tried to restart, the starter spun but the engine wouldn't catch to start. Electronics were all still...

    Think my friend sounds like your alternator has gone bad on you... Your battery still holds power and enough to run your electronics and starter but not enough power to run your ignition components.

    it sounds like the mounting bolts embedded in the mirros housing were pulled out somewhat.You will not know untill the mirror is removed. If the studs that hold this mirror housing to the door are pulled out take a heat gun to get the studs warm and twist them back in flush. them apply JB Weld to the studs lowest part to the mirror housing so they stay secured

    In my 1994 buick lesabre I have the inside door panel off on the passenger side but you can't get to the outside door mirror housing to replace the mirror. what else has to come off?

    Sometimes you have to make your own......neatly a non important area.......access hole when doing work on doors.
    Just make it look factory and only as big as needed.
