how do i replace a drivers side mirror on a 200 Toyota
I just replaced the right side mirror on a 2000 Toyota Camry. It
is attached to the car with 3 bolts. Open the car door and one of
the 3 bolts is easily seen by removing a round plastic cover on the
bolt screw. This is easily done by hand. There is a 10mm nut on the
thread which can then by unscrewed. The other two bolts are inside
of the triangular inside panel forward of the side door window. The
car I worked on had a small speaker in this panel. The panel has a
hinge clip on the bottom and is just pushed in at the top. To
remove it, pry the panel open by inserting a screwdriver underneath
the top point of the triangle and separate it from the door frame.

Now the outside mirror can be removed and the new mirror
assembly replaced in the three holes. If the side panel has a
speaker, the speaker bracket should be placed onto the bolts before

tightened and the electrical connector is reinserted, the
triangular plastic panel can be replaced. Line up the hinge clip at
the bottom of the panel with the hole in the frame at the bottom,
push it in at the top and it will snap in place again. The round
cover for the exposed bolt is pressed in place on that bolt and the
job is finished. Adjust the mirror.
