We're going to actually hit our dome lamp override, which just turns off the dome lamp. Then we're going to start up here at the corner. You can use a plastic trim tool, but I can just get my fingers behind here, pull straight out and off. You want to avoid pulling it this way, because as you can see this broke off in there. It still has two clips left though, so it'll secure fine. Then we're going to remove three other trim panels. And behind the door handle, put a small screwdriver in here, pry the bottom out and bring that out. You can see a 10mm bolt there. Then behind the door pull, use a small screwdriver to pull that out. Two more 10mm bolts are in there. Then your door lock, you want to kind of pull up a little bit and pry with a small flat blade screwdriver. That comes up and off. Make sure you retrieve that little piece if it flies out. If this comes out, just retrieve it and don't put it all the way in. Just put it like that. Additionally, you need to pull up your trim panel, plastic trim tool available on 1AAuto.com and put it in the back and pull up.

Okay, and then work it in at the front as well. You can see there's two clips at the front and rear. If you don't have a trim tool, but you have strong fingernails, you can get it out, and then just pull straight up on front as well. Then there's four harnesses to disconnect and you might have more. If you have more options, just press the tabs and pull out. Use a 10mm socket with ratchet and extension, and remove those three 10 mm bolts. These ones may stay in there after you get them loosened up. And in that case, they'll just fall down, and you can retrieve them after you take the door panel off.

Now, there's a series of clips around the edge. I usually start at the top, pull straight out, and just work your hand down. Pull firmly. Then the bottom and the side, and then door panel can come up and off. And then you'll want to disconnect your door handle, which is a matter of pressing on the tabs. There's two tabs, so press one, pull through, rotate around. Press on the other one. That allows you to move that back, bring it up and around, and your door panel comes off.

We have to pull this water barrier off. It's got some sticky strip caulk stuff. Just peel it off and then just go back on there. If it's really sticky, you can take a razor blade and just cut it as you're pulling away. Just gently work it off so you don't rip this foam. For the most part, you can reuse this. It will still be sticky, but you may want to get some new strip caulk to put on here when we replace it. So just be aware of that when you take it off.

Okay, we're going to remove the door mirror. We're going to pull out this piece of foam. We have a 10 millimeter nuts. You're going to use a 10 millimeter deep socket. Before I remove those, the wiring hardness for the mirror is snapped into these little body plugs. The easiest thing to do is to take some small side cutters, and just very carefully snip these small zip ties off. You can replace these zip ties afterwards. They just pull out of this little insert. Now that that wiring harness is loose, I'm going to start by loosening these. All right, so now I've got that loose. I'm going to put the window down just so I can reach through and hold the mirror while I take it off. That's good enough. All right, so I'm just going to hold the mirror while I finish loosening it up. Definitely make sure you hold this as you remove the last nut on the three studs because the mirror will fall off.

This truck has a little vent visor on here. It's already a little bit loose, so we're just going to pull it up. As you work this out, there's a small plastic push clip on the top here. It's part of the mirror. I'm going to have to reach up from behind and just sort of help it get pushed out. I'm going to slide this out from behind the vent visor, and feed your wire out. This is the clip I'm talking about. You have to push it out and squeeze it together. It goes up into here, this hole right here. You can feed your wiring harness out for your power mirror.

Before you install your new mirror, now's a good time just to wipe this out. Get some of that dirt out of there. All right, we're going to install the mirror by taking the wiring harness and feeding it through the hole here. Feed it all the way through. We have to go under our vent visor on this truck. Slide it up, and you'll get the studs in there. Push that little push clip in there. That will help hold it on. You can just put your hand here and hold it.

All right, so now we can start putting our nuts back on the studs. Get them caught, use my 10 millimeter deep socket. All right, you don't have to go super tight with these, just until they start getting tight. These are metal studs into the plastic mirror housing, you don't want to pull them out. Just go nice and even all the way around. That feels good. Now we're going to hook these back into these little clips. Take the zip tie and go through the clip like this. It goes all the way through. Now you've got your zip ties tightened, take your side cutters, and clip them off. Now that those are tight you can put the foam back in. Just kind of feed it in there. It's got a little slot for the wires.

All right, now we're ready to install this back on the door panel. Feed our wires through for the door switches and mirror. You can see the little channel that it was in, and you just want to push it down in.

First, you want to just make sure that your bolts come out and you retrieve them. There are two tabs here that just go right in to the door and rest conveniently so that's supported. Then you can put this up. Make sure you have four harnesses that poke up through the opening, here, or more if you have more options on your truck. Then reconnect your cable, slide the ball in, pull out, and push.

Make sure all your harnesses are up and through. Now that your cable's on, this ridge actually needs to go down into this channel here. So, hit the panel up into place. A little higher, you see it slides down. It should go down even. This should come right up through your lock rod. Then, if you look back in, you can actually see this pin here lines right up, and you can just go right around and lock the pins into place. So we want to be able to take these bolts and put them in. They’re a little bit loose, though. So, if you just take a piece of painter's tape, put it on the head of the bolt, stuff your socket on there, and it stays much better. You can guide it right in and start it out. If the painter's tape does stay behind, it's not a big deal, but tighten it by hand first to make sure it's in, and then tighten it up.

This one is pretty easy to get into place. Put the lockdown on. Snap that in place. This one, the round side goes underneath. Put this into place. Switch panel, these all only go in one way. So, like this one won't plug into there. It won't plug into there. It'll only plug into there. Then this one will only plug into there. This one can go in place. The last one, again, it has three tabs. One of ours is broken. Make sure it goes right straight in, kind of look in behind.
