How to remove only the side mirror and not the housing from a 2004 Tahoe?

The mirror will pop out of the housing. It is very difficult to do but it can be done. If yours is broken I would recommend buying a new housing and mirror off eBay. If you can find just the mirror you are lucky. Anyway, the back of the mirror looks like plus sign +. The mirror is attached using 4 screws that are on the tips of the +. To move the mirror the motor screws in or out. Move the mirror to the extremities and the pry each side out one by one. If you pull hard enough on the mirror you can get the screws to come out. So...if you are lucky enough to find a mirror then you will need to be lucky enough not to completely strip the motor when you pry out the mirror. It's really easier to install a new mirror I promise. To install a new mirror just remove the triangle piece on the interior and then unbolt and disconnect the wiring.

What is the width 1997 Ford Explorer?

According to the 1997 Ford Explorer Owner Guide : The diagram shows the BODY width as being ( 70.2 inches ) ( I'm not sure what it is from outside mirror to outside mirror but on my 1995 Ford Explorer XLT I have no problems putting it through my 8 foot wide garage door openings , not like a 1997 Ford Expedition that has maybe a TOTAL of 5 inches of clearance at the mirrors , have to be pretty carefull going through the 8 foot wide openings with that vehicle )
