How do you replace the passenger side mirror on a 2000 Mazda MPV?
This is for a 2002 model, but I would assume they are pretty much the same.
1. Pop off the plastic screw cover behind the inside door handle and remove screw. 2. Pop off the plastic screw cover in the recessed area where you grab the door to close it and remove screw. 3. Remove two (or possibly more) plastic screws around outside edge of door panel. 4. Pop out the plastic light cover near the bottom of the door.
The door panel should now come off. It will probably be connected with the wire for the mirror if you have power mirrors. To replace, reverse the steps above. Sorry if I left something out. I did mine by trial and error and ended up breaking the plastic light cover because I forgot about it.
Updated on 11-13-2010 for a 2005 Mazda MPV LX model:
It was the same, with where the screws were located. (Thank you!) Our model had 2 plastic screws on the edge of the door, one on top and one on bottom.
The mirror was held on by 3 nuts; make sure you have an extension bar for your socket wrench, or scrape your knuckles.
Here's the tricky part:
The cord for the new mirror is about an inch or so SHORTER than the mirror part that you'll be replacing. I ended up popping off the riveted clamp that held the electrical connector, and rerouting it so they would be able to reach each other.
There's a black sticky 'goo' glue keeping the plastic stuck to the door. Just make sure you seal that back properly & tightly.
I don't know if it's the same for a 2000, but I just replaced the driver's side mirror on my 2001 and it took about five minutes. There is a triangle panel at the front of the window. It will probably be easier to remove with the window down. There are clips on either side (at the top) of the triangle that attach to the door frame. Pull from the top detaching the clips 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. Neither Haynes nor Chilton has published for the 2000+ MPV. I could tell you how, it's not hard, I've had mine off numerous times, but it's easier for you to peruse this very…
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.
