Here are the items you'll need for this repair: hooked pick, trim tools, Phillips screwdriver

Normally, there would be a little panel here that's broken off and missing from our vehicle. You would want to take a hook pick, put it in there, and just pop it down. Once that's out of the way, you can use a Phillips head screwdriver to remove the screw and the handle. Now, unless you're replacing the mirror, you'll only have to remove the three color matched clips: one here and two at the back of the panel. The black clips can stay in place since this piece of trim is all on its own.

To remove these clips, push the center in one click, and you can see there's a small hole in there. I find the easiest way to remove these is get a hooked pick, grab that, and pull it out. Repeat this process for the other two clips. And then three Phillips head screws along the bottom, as well as one above the side here in the front. We'll remove all of those with our Phillips head screwdriver. Below the door pull is another panel.

We'll have to pop down. Behind that panel is another Phillips head screw that we'll have to remove with our screwdriver. Grab the bottom of the panel, pop it out, release the door handle cable here by popping this clip off to the side rotating it and lifting the hook out. You should be able to lay it back enough to remove the connectors on the master window switch. And we'll want to pop out all the retainers, the wire harness down here. Unplug the courtesy light at the bottom of the panel as well.

Again, this is another great place that our trim tools come in handy. Just reach it under there and pop ‘em out and set your panel off to the side. Reconnect the courtesy light. Pop those two harness connection back into their proper locations. Reconnect the power mirror switch.

I know there are two gray connectors with a lot of similar colored wires going to them, but the one for the mirror switch is slight smaller and has a lot more connections on it, so we'll plug that in all the way at the front of the panel closest to me. The little black connector goes in the top of the power window switch and the large gray connector goes at the far end of the power window switch. Reinstall the lock rod. Slide that clip back over. Lift up and slide over the door lock, line up your panel and snap all the clips back into place.

To reinstall these clips you'll have to push the tab back out and through. Place it back into its opening in the door panel. Pop the tab back in in the center. Repeat that process with the other two clips at the back of the door. Reinstall the three screw along the bottom. The one up here at the front of the door, one under this panel, and one behind the door handle with our Phillips head screwdriver. Remember to close those cover panels on the door if your vehicle still has them.
