1996 Camry - outside driver's door handle (plastic) broke away

You can get a whole door from a U-pull-it parts place for under fifty dollars. Any kind of an adhesive will only be a patch and will not last.

Side View Mirror Wiring

Just try matching from the outside to the outside, middle to middle, etc. or use a continuity tester against each pair until the light up. Solder the wires, do not use wire nuts.

How do I replace my passenger side mirror?


I've completed this same prcedure on my 1999 GMC Sonoma recently.

Firstly, did you get the right mirror? You need to make sure that the mirror you got is the same as the one you had. For example, if the old mirror was powered and heated, make sure you have a powered and heated mirror.

Now, on to the repairs. I managed to do it in about 2 hours outside my garage with a socket set and some basic hand tools.

- Open the passenger door and remove the door trim (the large plastic piece on the inside of the door which holds your armrest, handle, window switches and lock switch. Your manual and service manual will not go into much detail here.
- What you need to do is remove the inside door handle first.
- Locate the screw behind the lever and remove it.
- Locate two screws in the door trim (usually under the arm rest) and remove them
- Remove the panel with the switches. A flathead screwdrier was used to pry that piece off.
- Disconnect the connectors for the switches.
- The door trim is held on by plastic reusable rivots. These can break, but one or two broken ones will not hurt. They are removed by lifting the trim up and then pulling it out. Pulling it straight out will damage more than one or two rivots.
- Try lifting the trim up with some good force. This may take a minute. Be sure to have lemonade ready for a break
- Once that trim was off, accept a high five from me as that's the toughest part.
- Now, look at the inside of the door where your mirror is. You'll see 3 rubber bumpers.
- Carefully remove these. DO NO DROP THEM! If you do, you must rip and tear more stuff to get them out of the door.
- Disconnect and wires going to your mirror and set them aside.
- Now, carefully again, remove the bolts holding your mirror on. Maybe get someone to hang on to your mirror as you undo these.
- Once those are off, remove the mirror.

For the installation, I'll just simplify the reverse of the removal intructions

- Put the mirror on and put the bolts in (Don't drop them)
- put the rubber bumpers on. (Don't forget. I did. I had to take the trim off again)
- Re connect wiring harness
- Put trim back on. Remember, push it on, then push down.
- Screw trim on under arm rest
- Reconnect wiring to switches
- Clip the switch panel back in
- Put the screw back in behind the handle
- Test

If this worked, GREAT!

If not, unfourtunatly you will have to contact a body technician as there may be problems beyond your control.

Hope this helps!
