Hi, this is Mike from 1A Auto. I hope this how to video helps you out. Next time you need parts for your vehicle, think of 1AAuto.com. In this video, we'll show you how to replace the side or rear view mirror on this 2003 Honda Civic, same as most 2001 to '05 Civics. Pretty easy operation. The only tools you'll need are an 8mm socket with a ratchet or an 8mm wrench.

To replace the mirror, you'll only pull on that. It comes off. I could see the mirror's held on by three 8mm bolts. Your lead here has a little tab on the bottom. Push on that and the lead unplugs. We're going to speed it up here as I use an 8mm wrench to loosen those nuts and then they pretty much come off by hand. Be careful not to lose the front window down into the door panel. Best tool for this is probably an 8mm socket with a ratchet and extension. Press down. You'll need to use your screwdriver. Press down on these tabs here and then on this one here. The mirror comes out.

The mirror from 1A Auto comes with the gasket and everything. Just be careful and make sure that the gasket is all pushed in place correctly with these series of little pins on the gasket clips to as well. Okay. Then push it on. Put it in place. Then use your original 8mm nuts. I'll fast forward here as I, first, I put the nuts on by hand. Like I said the best tool for this is actually an 8mm socket with a ratchet and extension that help you get those nuts tighten as quickly as possible. In the middle there, I reconnect the lead. That just kind of helps it get out of the way. Then finish tightening it up.
