It's very simple open your door if you look at the top of door panel towards the front of car you will see somewhat of a triangular piece connected to the door panel at top take a flat head screwdriver and slide it behind it and pry towards you it will pop off. Behind it are 3 10mm bolts and a plug. Disconnect plug and remove bolts and it will come right off. Replace new mirror,bolts, and attach plug snap cover back and your done.
Follow these steps:
1) Unplug the TV
2) Remove the lower access panel (the pressboard with all the holes in it) by removing the screws holding it in place. (This is the panel where where your connections are made)
3) Remove all the screws on the big black shroud on the back that actually holds to mirror. There are probably about 15 screws.
4) gently lift the panel off and set in on the floor or table where you can clean the mirror. (remember the mirror is attached to the back side of it) I usually put in on the floor.
5) clean the mirror with glass cleaner or non-streaking solution.
Use a razor blade scraper.These work the best for removing the glue.Be very careful.Go to a part store and ask for the adhesive for repairing rear view mirrors.It comes in a kit with the cleaner and the glue and instructions.You have to remove the mounting piece from the mirror and clean it also.Make sure you put the mounting piece on correctly or you will have to remove it again and it won`t be easy.Use a piece of tape for a mark on the out side of the windshield before you remove the glue from the inside so you know where the mirror was mounted.Follow the instructions carefully and this will take care of your problem.Auto Zone has this in stock.Hope this helps.Good luck.
About 45 minutes labor.It's fairly easy for the mechanically inclined person.You need to remove the trim on the inside of the truck that covers the mirror, then you have mounting screws that you need to remove.If you have a power mirror you need to release the electrical pigtail, then you can take the mirror out.Install is reverse of removal.Any other questions please get back to me.I'm here to help.HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!
Side view mirrors are relatively simple to replace. Sometimes it requires the removal of the complete door trim to gain access to the mounting nuts and any wiring it may have. Other times there is a triangle piece in the corner of the door window opening that can be removed by itself and allows access to the hardware and wiring connectors. Check local junkyards for a used mirror, you may even find one in the right color. Good luck.
...if all 3 lights are on... This is a laser mirror motor problem. If you are a little bit technician then... Remove all cables, open front panel, remove the cartridge, remove the 2 screws on top and 3 on back side, remove a white latch from underside left (or right i don't remember ). With a small screwdriver release 4 tabs that hold back cower and remove it. Pull a little bit on under front edges for releasing two little tabs and remove the whole cover by lifting it.. Now you can see the laser scanner unit with a yellow label on it. Remove the screw, release the tabs an remove laser cover after removing one or two little cables over it. You can see now a rotating square mirror fixed over a little disc, secured with a little plastic black tab. DO NOT TOUCH THE MIRROR WITH BARE HANDS or you will make it dirty . Rotate the black tab to release the disc, remove the mirror with a clean cloth, and put a small drop of synthetic oil on its rod... that's all. Hope you can do it.
If there is no damage to the door itself the mirror replacement is fairly easy on this model. Remove the inside plastic trim panel,it just snaps on. Disconnect the electrical connector remove the bolt in the center and there will be a screw toward the front of the door,remove it then remove the mirror.
Here is a pic of the bolt and screw. http://i253.photobucket.com/albums/hh43/chuck943/focusmirror.gif
If it has a painted cover on the outside of the mirror to match the color of the vehicle then that would have to be painted to match unless your old one did not suffer any damage then you could just swap it.It just snaps on also, and it may or may not come with a new mirror so I would ask when ordering it.
Mirror units are not very expensive and canbe found online. I change the passenger side one earlier this year after the morror fell out. It does require removing part of the interior trim and it is help on by 3 screws depending on your model. if it is a power unit the connector is fairly easy to to get apart, use a small straight blade screw driver to lift the latch being carful not to break off the tab otherwise you will have to wrsapit with tape to ensure that it does does not come apart from normal driving and rough roads.
