If you go to www.automirrorglassonly.com it will tell you how to replace the mirror glass for the outside mirror. You can buy one there too. The outside mirror is just glued on , some parts stores sell replacement glass and you can glue the new one on

To replace the light bulbs in the sun visor vanity mirror on a 1991 Ford Escort LX, the mirror will have to be replaced. This part does not have replacement bulbs readily available. If the bulbs are not working it is a problem with a fuse as these run off the battery and are on the same circuit as the interior lights.

Usually, to replace any power mirror, you must first remove the inside door panel. From there you should have access to the rear of the mirror. There has to be some screws (usually 3 screws) holding the mirror in place. Also follow the wires from the mirror to where it is connected and disconnect.

you probaly can't do it yourself so take it to a shop that can and if they have something to replace it with.

If it is like the 99 SL then open the door, remove the black cover in the corner of the window on the inside. Remove the 3 nuts using 10mm socket, remove black cover, or mirror from the outside. Place new mirror from the outside, put nuts back on the 3 posts or bolts from the inside, replace black cover by firmly pushing back on and you are done. Hope this helps...good luck

1: open the door 2: there is a small cover at the top right corner of the door panel. it should have a little speaker in it. gentley pull this cover off. 3: remove the insulation 4: there are 3 10mm nuts holding the mirror on (a 10mm deep socket will be helpfull at this point), remove them 5: for power or manual mirrors you will next need to remove the switch panel on the door. this will allow you access to the controls for the mirror. 5a: for power mirror simply unplug the wires for the switch 5b: for manual mirror you will need to carefully remove the mirror adjuster from the switch panel 6: next replace mirror and tighten nuts 7: plug in mirror power controls, or push manual controls in place 8: replace switch panel 9: replace insulation 10: replace cover

You can't really replace it. You may be able to replace a broken lens if you're careful but if your problem is with the driver's side and its a manual mirror you're going to half to buy a whole new unit and get it painted to match your car. I've had to do this twice on my 96 with manual mirrors. The control guide wires attach to a plasic addembly inside the mirror. They eventually break loose from the back of the assembly making it useless. It's not repairable either because there is no access to the bolts that hold the mechanism to the mirror body unless the mirror is has the cables broken in which case it's a moot point. If you mean replace the whole assembly that's much easier. Remove the small screw near the center of the triangular piece of plastic inside the door opposite the mirror. Pop the plastic off and you'll find two bolts. remove those bolts and the mirror just falls off.

Buy the assembly from the dealer, and,The question you ask is too involved for a proper answer. You may want to go to a car parts store, or book store, and get a repair manual for your car. They cost about $16.00 Or, go to a Public Library.

someone please post how to do this, ive got a 95 dx and i need this guide to fix it, not replace it

User Avatar

If you heat the mirror with a propane torch, you should be able to soften the glue and pick the mirror glass off. Get a replacement glass and silicone it on, using masking tape to hold it for 24 hrs. -- remove door panel, remove bolts to the mirror, (unclip wiring if a power mirror) replace.

For Manual adjust mirrors!Remove the plastic cover on the outside of the mirror with a knife.Undo the 2 Phillips screws that have been exposed.Remove the plastic round cover and rubber cover from the manual adjuster on the inside of the car.Remove the 2 7mm nuts, now exposed, from the maual adjuster.Pull the mirror off the car from the outside of the door.

THis applies to the manual mirror only. I think the electric mirror may require you to unhook the cable too. Unscrew the cover inside the door by the mirror. Pull out the foam liner and you will see 3 nuts. You might have to pull the inside panel away from the door a bit. Unscrew the 3 nuts and remove the mirror. Remove the foam seal on the outside of the door if it does not come away with the mirror. Replace with the new mirror and bold everything back together. Put the foam liner back and screw the cover back in place . It took me about 15 minutes to do the job.

It would help to know what the year, make, and model of vehicle is, as there are different mirror assemblies in use.

How do I Replace the door mirror on a mercedes benz 1994 c-class

User Avatar

The outside mirror is held on by two retaining bolts and a wiring harness. Remove the inside door panel to view the mirror retaining bolts. After removing the retaining bolts and wiring harness reverse the process to install the new mirror.

On the 1996 Hombre, you have to remove the inside door panel. You will see three nuts holding the mirror. Try Advance Auto Parts for replacement mirror (probably same as S-10).

Replace it with a good old fashioned manual mirror, believe me you will have less headaches and more money!
