on the inside of the car, in the corner of the door there is a small triangular plastic cover (black on mine). Gently pop that off to expose 3 screws (hex-hed i think). There will also be an electronic connection that powers the automatic mirror. disconnnect the electronics by pulling apart. unscrew screws and remove old mirror and assembly while supporting from the outside. It will come out as one piece. The mirror's half of the electronic connector will need to be threaded through the gasket to allow the mirror assembly to compleatly separate from the car. Replace the entire mirror assembly (one piece)... check junk yard/pick&pull for a low cost replacement. You'll already know the tools you'll need and how to remove the entire mirror assembly quickly. Just make sure you pull one from the same model, year and side... should go without saying. Put the new one on just like the old one came off. It's really pretty easy. Shouldn't take more than 5-15 minutes. Good luck.

It's ok to replace the mirror with a second-hand one. The only difficulty will be to find one that will match the color of your vehicle. You can replace it yourself, and it's much easier if you have a repair manual to guide you for best results.

What are the procedures to replace the passenger side power mirror on a 2004 Nissan Altima?

I have a 2002 altima & just replaced mine a couple weeks ago. its very simple. the mirror has three screws bolting it to the car. To rempve you have to access the screws from inside the car. with the car door open you can pop off the small piece of the door panel where the mirror is located. just give it a tug. then you will be able to remove the screws with the proper socket (i dont remember the size.) you have to un hook the wiring harness & everything should be loose after that/.

How do you replace the passenger side view mirror on a 2007 Nissan Altima?

It is easy, as long as the door frame has no damage. Remove the black plastic trim piece from inside on the door panel directly opposite the door mirror. It snaps free and with some wiggling you can remove it to reveal the 3 nuts and bolts holding the mirror assembly in place on the door. You will also see the electronic connector(for the mirror) that unsnaps easily. There are two types of connector depending on the wiring of your car. One accepts the folding heating mirror(seven wires) and the other is for the fixed mirror (four wires). If you have the seven wire connector you can replace the mirror on your 07 Altima with a folding Heating mirror Even if your car did not come with it in the first place. It is a direct plug and play replacement. I got mine from Ebay and did it myself - I did not color match the exterior and just left it black.
