How do you replace the driver's side mirror on 2000 Ford Windstar?
Not sure if it will be the same for the 2000 Windstar. I changed the whole mirror assembly on my 98 passanger side. There are 3 nuts holding the assembly on the door. You must first remove the inside door panel by removing the cover around the door opener handle. There is a screw behind it once that is removed you can remove the panel by lifting up on the panel. you can then unplug the power window and lock buttons if you like( it does make it easier). then you have access to the nuts holding the mirror assembly one once you remove the little black rubber plugs. Unplug the power mirror cable and then reinstall the new one in the opposite order as the removal. .
The door panel could then be removed by lifting up and towards the back of the car. The two power connectors near the middle of the panel unplug by depressing a tab on them and the courtesy light near the bottom rear of the door panel can be removed by twisting counter clockwise.
There are 3 nuts holding on the mirror assembly, two of which are under black plastic/rubber hole-filler grommets. Be careful not to drop the nuts down in the door panel! I used an 11mm socket with a magnet to keep the nuts from dropping.
The power connector for the mirror motor/heater is under some white foam sound proofing. I peeled back a portion of it to expose the power connector. After unplugging the connector, I tied a piece of sturdy string to the old power connector before removing the mirror so that the string "fished" through the door panel as I removed the mirror and cord. I then untied the string from the old connector and tied it onto the new mirror's connector and pulled the cord back through the door panel. I think it would be very difficult otherwise to get the connector back through the door panel.
The remainder of the installation was just a reverse of the removal.
On my 1998 E320 the glass had cracked or something and the light differentiating fluid had leaked out leaving me with two images. The dealer wanted $450 for the mirror. I carefully cut out a piece of cardboard the size I wanted and had a local glass shop cut a mirror. I attached it with double stick white cushy tape and caulking onto the existing mirror. Cost $20.

hi there,to replace the rear spark plugs you virtually reach over the motor and do everything by feel .it is quite an awkward reach to get at them,but the hardest one is the one closest to the drivers side. there isn't much room.if it helps you can also hang a small mirror there and this helps a bit to see what you are doing.hope this helps.

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
To remove and install a door mirror on a 2000 Mitsubishi Mirage, the door panel needs to be removed on the inside of the door. First remove any light lenses in the door, then unfasten the clips holding the door panel on. Then remove the mounting bolt for the mirror. Put in a new mirror, replace the door panel and the light lenses.
