My Husband needs some directions on how to replace the side mirror on the passenger side of my 2003 Montana

    MY mirror broke off after hitting the lid of a mailbox at a neighbors house and it is banging all over the place! I have tried to duck tape and gorilla tape and glue it but it won't hold. I'm not sure if the housing is connected to the piece that is cracked off or if the door assembly is needing replaced. ???

If you are replacing the entire mirror assembly you have to remove the door panel.

First remove the switch plate by prying upward at the rear of the switch plate and unhook the connectors. Then remove the two armrest screws. The door panel then has to be pryed away from the door to release the clips. They don't give up easily so yo may have to force it a bit. Once the clips are loose pull up on the panel to remove it from the window reveal molding. The mirror is held on with three 10mm nuts. remove those and unhook the wiring from in the door. Install is reverse of removal.

Good Luck

Passenger side power window does not work


We had this problem and just actually fixed it today. Had tried a passenger side door switch but that didn't help. We ended up buying and replacing the drivers side door switch and that solved the problem of our passenger side window not going up or down. The driver side switch is a one piece unit available from the dealer and it controls both driver and passenger side windows.

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....

Replacing side mirror on 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan


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 you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door

Passenger side mirror came out of housing.


Ok,here's the deal.You'll need lots of patience. The mirror has two threaded stubs about 1-1.5 in. long that move inward and outward to move the mirror in or out. These two are about two to three inches apart.
1. So take these 'two stubs' out of the mirror housing and make sure you snap 'em into the back of the mirror plate (plastic plate) where the mirror is glued to.
2. Now with lots of patience, move the mirror back into the housing making sure that the stubs are inserted into their respective holes. But don't push 'em all the way in.
3. Instead push the mirror little by little until every part is lined up to its correspondent receiving hole in the mirror housing
4. Make sure every parts matches its corresponding spot and keep pushing the mirror back into the housing.
5. You'll get to a point where you need to apply force (but be careful don't apply too much) to snap the whole mirror plate (plastic plate) back into the housing.
