Hi, I'm Don from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and the next time you need a part for your vehicle, think of 1AAuto.com. Thanks.

In this video, we're going to show you how to replace the side rear view mirror on this 2004 Chrysler Sebring. It appears the same for any 2001 to 2006, although some of the door panels may be a little different. We're going to do this on the driver side. The passenger side is the same procedure.

You'll need a new mirror from 1AAuto.com, flat blade screwdriver, Phillips screwdriver, and an 8mm socket and ratchet. There are two trap doors here. There's one right here behind the door handle and another one here in the pull cup. All you need to do is just stick the flat blade screwdriver into the little slot on the side of the trap door and just pry it out. Now what you want to do is remove each of these Phillips screws. There are six in total. We'll just fast-forward as Don removes those.

Take your flat head screwdriver and pry off that triangle panel. To release the clips on the back of the door panel, you just want to pull out all the way around the door panel. Once you've done that, you can lift it up and off of your door lock knob. Then behind the back of the door panel, you'll see here is your door handle rod. You just want to pop that clip up and pull that up and out. You want to disconnect the two harnesses here by just pushing in and pulling them out. Now your door panel is free.

Now to remove your mirror, you first want to just push in the tab on this harness and pull it out. Then you want to remove these two 8mm nuts and the one 8mm bolt. We'll fast-forward as Don removes these. Now you can just pull that mirror out and off. You may have to lift your rain guard to free it. It pulls right out.

The old side mirror is in the front, the new one from 1A Auto is in the back. You can see they're identical: same shape, same color, same mounting points, and the same harness.

Now to install your new mirror, run the harness through the door. Line up those studs and push them into place. Then you just want to start off these 8mm nuts by hand. You want to replace the bolt and just tighten everything up with your socket and ratchet. Reconnect your side mirror.

To reinstall the door panel, you just want to take that door handle rod, put it back into place, and reclip it. Then you want to just reconnect your two harnesses. Once you've done that, you want to just line up your door. Put it up and over the door lock knob and down into place. Then you just want to push those clips in around the edges of the door panel. We'll just fast-forward here as Don replaces those six Phillip screws. Now just replace your trap doors and that triangular panel.
