1A Auto shows you how to repair, fix, change or replace a broken, smashed, cracked, or shattered side view mirror. This video is applicable to 2004-2008 Chrysler Pacifica models. You will first learn how to remove your existing rear side view mirror, and then install a replacement.
"In this video, we're going to show you how to replace a side rear view mirror on this Chrysler Pacifica. We show you the driver's side in the video. The passenger's side is basically the same procedure. The tools you'll need for this side view mirror repair job are a flat-blade screwdriver, Phillips screwdriver, a door panel clip tool or a putty knife would work, and either a 10-millimeter wrench or a 10-millimeter socket with a ratchet.
Okay, first, here is how you remove the side mirror. You'll take a flat blade screwdriver and there's a little trapdoor right there. You pry that forward and out, and there's one down here, you pry this one back and then out. This one, forward and off. This one, pry backwards, a little twist of the screwdriver and pull it out. Then right in behind, there's two Phillips screws, we'll remove those.
Now, a door panel clip tool and another screwdriver. The clip tool in behind here, go down to this. You'll feel this clip, take it out and get right on that clip. It came apart pretty easy. Go right around the door and release the clips right around, it's usually probably five or six clips, then pull it out and up and off.
Okay it's a little hard to film, but start with this speaker wire. You should be able to pull it right off. Then these harnesses, they just all have little tabs right on the bottom of them, just pull up with your finger and release. Actually that middle doesn't need to be unplugged. This cable here, pull it out and then the cable comes out and you can disconnect. There's a clip here, pull the clip off, and pull that cable up and out. This cable should pull out. It looks like this has been apart before, like somebody broke it, so there's now a wire tie holding it. Snip the wire tie. The cable, it should just snap right out of there and then it pulls forward and out. Then, finally way down is your courtesy light, same thing, it just pulls right off.
You can see your side mirror plugs in right here, push down on the tab and unplug that. This carefully, pull it right out. Pull it out and then up. You don't want to pull it off too far. Take this pad and move it. Again, there's three 10-millimeter bolts here. We're using a socket with a ratchet extension. A 10-millimeter wrench would work just as well too. Speed up here as I just remove those three nuts that hold the mirror on. Once those are off, reach out and pull your mirror or what's left of your mirror right off. That's how to remove the side view mirror.
Okay, here's our original mirror and here is our new 2006-2008 Chrysler Pacifica side view mirror replacement from 1A Auto. See, it's exactly the same. Has the same connector and everything. It's going to go on there just like the original. Okay, now here is how to install the new side view mirror. Let's just reverse the procedure. Put your harness through. You can use your original 10-millimeter nuts. Again, I'll just fast-forward. I put the nuts on by hand at first and then tighten them up nice and snug. Tighten them up firmly. Don't over-tighten them. Nice and snug with your socket and ratchet or wrench.
Put this insulation back on, slide it down and in. Reconnect the mirror and push this back up in place. Slide it down there first. Make sure it goes on the other side of the metal, into place. Bring the door panel over. We're going to plug in our light way down here first, probably can't see it. Plug in our speaker. Plug in our two harnesses there. This goes in. You have to peek down around, pull your lock up. You slide it backwards in and then just leave it there for now. This one goes into the handle and lock this clip on. Bring it around, pull it back, cable in and down. As you bring the door panel towards the door, you put this cable in. Panel up and on. Peek back in here. Put our two screws back in. Put our little trim doors back on and we are done. That is how to fix a side view mirror on 2004-2008 Chrysler Pacifica models.
