Question about 1991 Saturn SL2
Only $300.00 to fix? Wow. How much to replace? Here are some other, less expensive options and advice. First, save your money.
If it's a manual mirror (little joystick adjuster on the door), you can unscrew the trim panel and check the control rods (sort of like brake lines on a bicycle). Don't think this will be very effective though.
If it's electric, all the moving (rattling) parts are inside the mirror.
To actually get to them to make adjustments would be somewhat difficult if not destructive. Once the glass is attached, it's pretty much there forever.
An alternative to the repair would be a replacement with a twist
Call a few of your local salvage yards.
See if the have a 98 SL2 mirror in your color. Most of the more established yards have this info on computer and mirrors are something they keep an inventory of.
To replace it, you'll need to pull the door panel But you were planning on that anyhow. At least this way you aren't wondering if it's going to be fixable.
If you decide to go this route, Click on the ASK button. I'll get you through.
Bottom Line: Replace the mirror yourself with a used one. Cost should be less than $40.00
Remember: Good things happen for those who Rate!!!
