I just finished removing and reinstalling the drivers side door panel to work on the window assembly, I just felt my way through the process but it seemed to work. My Galant has power windows and power door locks so it might be different if yours are manual. 1. Remove the two visible screws on the hinge side of the door panel 2. Remove the two (or three) visible screws on the latch side of the door panel. 3. Remove the screw in the plastic door pull recess. 4. Remove the door pull recess by extending the door pull (like you are opening the door), lifting the end of the recess that the screw was removed from and pulling the recess forward toward the door hinges. 5. Lift the plastic cap off the screw head in the 'cup' located at the rear of the power window control panel on the door and remove the screw. 6. Lift the power window control panel out of the door panel ( it puts up a fight) and disconect the two power plugs on the bottom of the assembly. 7. Using a stiff putty knife or a similar tool pry the bottom of the door panel from the door, it is secured by several plastic push in thingies. 8. Disconect the light bulb from the lower left hand corner of the door panel by twisting it a half turn and pulling straight out. 9. At this point the panel should be connected to the door at the top of the panel only. 10. There is probably a better technique but I lifted and pryed and twisted the door panel until the fasteners from Hell that connect the top of the panel to the door decided to release the panel (all the while making sure I was gentle enough not to damage the panel or the fasteners). 11. I didn't need to remove the mirror but I did notice a screw head leading to the mirror assembly that was exposed after the panel was removed. 12. While you have the panel removed you might want to lubricate as many mechanisms as you can while you have them exposed.

To install the Mitsubishi Eclipse driver mirror, you will need to remove the interior door panel on the driver's side. Then, remove the cover for the mirror screws. Remove the screws and wiring and remove the old mirror. Replace the wiring and screws as you add the new mirror to the car. Then place the cover and the door panel back on the vehicle.
