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

In this video, we're going to show you how to replace a side or rear-view mirror on this 2005 Dodge Durango, pretty much the same as any 2004 to 2009. We show you the driver's side. The passenger's side is pretty much the same. The tools you'll need are a small flat blade screwdriver, A Phillips screwdriver and either a 10 mm wrench or a 10 mm socket and ratchet.

Okay, take a small screwdriver and kind of push towards the front and pry up on your panel here. Okay, the back comes up and out and the front slides out and then there's three connectors. They just have little tabs. You push with your thumb, pull up and out. Now, in behind your door handle, just pry out this little cover here with a small screwdriver, and there's a Phillips screw there as well as a Phillips screw under there and one further back there.

I'll just fast forward here. I'm just using a Phillips screwdriver and removing those three screws I just showed you. Once those screws are out, just lift up the panel and then start pulling it out. You'll see a little blue clip back here. Pull that blue clip back off the rod, see, and pull the rod up and remove your door there. Your mirror connects in right here. There's a tab here. It's a little button. Just push that and remove; and then there's three 10 mm nuts. You need a socket ratchet like this or just a wrench.

I'm going to fast forward as I remove those three nuts and then, at the end here, you'll see I pulled the mirror off. You do have to just kind of close your door a little bit to get the mirror off as it kind of hits the A-pillar. Your mirror comes off. New mirror from 1A Auto designed to fit just like the original. Okay, it's going to go right on there. We're going to just about shut the door. Then, you get the harness in. Then, put the studs through. This does come with a gasket and everything. Take that shipping protector off. Then, open up the door. Just start this top one on.

I'll fast forward here again as I start all three of the 10 mm nuts back on and then tighten them. When you tighten them, you want to tighten them up nice and firm, but don't over-tighten them. You could actually break or damage the mirror if you over-tighten them. Okay, test the mirror. You put this panel back on. Make sure your harness is going through there. Hold this rod out. Put it into that blue clip and lock the clip on. Make sure your door lock goes through there. You just want to press it against. You can look back in here and see where all the little hooks are, in the front. Make sure that the front and rear go in flush with the door. You just want to make sure all the hooks are on there correctly. Slide down, oops. I realized that this just came out. Make sure that lock is on there. Slide it right down. Okay everything should be nice and tight around the edges.

Here, I'm going to speed it up again as I just reinstall the three screws, the two at the bottom and the one in behind the door handle. Those screws are what hold the door handle down in place. The harnesses are out. Slide this down. Slide the front end first and the rear. This can be a little bit of pain. I'll just put this little trim door back on.
