Question about 1997 Buick LeSabre
The bracket that holds my side mirror in the mirror housing. Everything else about the mirror works fine (it electronic) I need to replace the bracket, but I can't see how to put the mirror back together once I have a bracket.
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.

Try looking in a good service manual. It should give you a step-by-step process.

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.
