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

In this video, we are going to show you how to replace a manual mirror on this 2005 Ford Focus with the same parts and similar process on this Focus from 2003 to 2007 and we'll show you on the driver side with the passenger side is the similar procedure and the items you'll need for this is a new side mirror from 1AAuto.com, a window crank removal tool or a paper clip, a flat blade screwdriver, a 1/4 inch or 6 1/2mm socket and ratchet, a T20 torx bit and a 10mm socket.

Take a paper clip and make a tool out of it. You want to bend it like that, bend this all the way straight. I'm going to take a pair of pliers and I'm just going to grab the very end of it and bend it right up into a little hook. Now I can take just a regular screwdriver and create that separation I need. Put my little tool in here, rotate it, and pull it up. That pulls the clip out and it comes off.

Pry off this small cover and then pry off this panel on your pull handle. Then remove these two 6.5mm bolts, and then this T20 and this series of T20 screws around the outside of the door panel. We'll just fast-forward as Mike removes all of those. Now pry off this bezel and then slide it forward. Pull out on this triangular panel, and then take your door panel and just lift it up and out of the window sill and pull it free.

Now twist off this ring and slide that cable out. Then remove this grommet, and you just pull it out. Then you want to remove this T20 screw and this 10mm bolt. Now T20 is actually stripped and not even really doing anything anymore. We don't really have to worry about that, but we'll remove this 10mm bolt. Then pull your mirror up and through the door.

Take your new mirror, slide the cables back through the door, and then just push the mirror back into place and replace that 10mm bolt. Then take that grommet, slide it back over the cables, and push it back into place.

Take your door panel and feed the door handle through the panel. Then push the top of the door panel back down into the window sill. Once you have it lined up and back in place, take your door handle, push it in, and just slide it forward. Then re-clip this triangular panel, slide this bezel back into place, and push it in. We'll fast-forward as Mike replaces all of those bolts and tightens them up. Replace that screw cover, and then just take that panel for your pull handle and slide the top in first. Then clip in the bottom. Make sure that clip's pushed in on your window crank, and put that washer into place. Then push the window crank back onto the stud.
