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.

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

yes. You can replace just the glass or the whole assembly.

You may be able to go to a glass store and have it replaced reasonably

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.

Many automotive glass shops will sell just the mirror glass or alternatively they will install it for you.

most parts stores have cheap replacement mirror glass. simply remove all traces of your old mirror glass, remove the cover to the adhesive on the back of new mirror glass, and stick in place.

To replace the mirror glass on a Ford Fiesta first remove the clips holding the mirror in place and remove the glass. Next, heat the adhesives with a hair dryer or hot gun and use a putty knife to remove the adhesive from the mirror housing. Add glue to the corners and put in new mirror. Press the mirror into place for one minute and replace the clips.

It is because the silvering for the mirror is separating from the glass. Apparently this is a fairly common problem for heated mirrors. You need to replace the glass or whole housing.

If the mirror housing is ok, A glass shop can sell you a replacement mirror with double sided tape to replace the broken one. It even says "objects in mirror are closer than they appear"

Not knowing which mirror on what vehicle, many glass shops can replace the mirror if that is all that is broken.

You have to remove the complete mirror from the car. Remove the nuts from the inside.

not very clear on which part of mirror, glass only or motor or whole mirror, is the mirror a power mirror or manual?most are going to be similar to replace entire assy , you will have to take off the inside door panel to access the 2 bolts holding mirror onto door and rewire controls to arm rest.to replace glass mirror only, tilt mirror so you can grab the mirror and pull and tilt mirror till it pops off of . be careful to replace line up motor adjusters and center snap , push gently till all adjusters and center pops back into placeto replace mirror and motor see above to remove glass mirror, then unscrew 3 screws holding the motor in place , either take of door panel off or splice new motor wires, (easier than taking off door panel) replace screws and glass ,done

As long as it is not a heated mirror or any special type of mirror your local glass shop should be able to repair it for you. Cost in eastern pa would be about $45 ......if it is only the glass that needs to be replaced. Ebay also commonly has listings for both the entire mirror or just the glass.

I just replaced the drivers side outside mirror (glass only) on a 2001 buick park avenue ultra,I grabbed the glass on both side of the mirror and popped it straight back .there were three wire connectors that I carefully unplugged,I plugged the connectors onto the new glass, and lined up the clips in the center of the back of the new glass and popped the glass back in place.It took about 15 minutes. good luck

You will need to replace the whole mirror. Just buy a replacement at auto zone and installe.

User Avatar

I expect that you can buy the mirror online but I had mine fixed at a local glass shop. They purchased or cut a mirror to fit and they glued it over the cracked one.

If you want to replace just the glass,you tilt the mirror to the inside and you depress the two tabs that hold it in.Slide the glass out and there is one tab on the back that depresses and the mirror slides out.If you want to replace the whole mirror,the handle on the remote is held on by one screw or if a non remote the plastic cover snaps off.Then there are three screws that hold it on to the door.
