Hi, I'm Mike Green, I'm one of the owners of 1A Auto. I want to help you save time and money repairing and maintaining your vehicle. I'm going to use my 20 plus years experience restoring and repairing cars and trucks like this to show you the correct way to install parts from The right parts installed correctly, that's going to save you time and money. Thank you and enjoy the video.

In this video we'll be showing you how to replace a manual mirror on this 1997 Pontiac Sunfire same as pretty much a '95 to '05 Sunfire or Cavalier with the manual mirrors and all the only tools you'll need are a Phillip's screwdriver and a 10mm wrench or socket and ratchet.

If you have one of these Cavaliers or Sunfire's with a manual mirror usually if they have manual windows the manual mirror we'll place that here if you give it a little run-ins, it's really a pretty easy task. Just a little Phillip's screwdriver right here for a Phillip's screw. Remove that, the plate comes off and then you can pull this little piece of foam rubber out and there's three 10mm bolts. You see right there, one, two and three. I think you have to be really careful of this, make sure you don't drop these bolts, and for these back two others, 10mm socket and ratchet will be your best bet.

There's the mirror off. Here's the original mirror, here's the mirror from 1A Auto. You can see everything's all the same. 1A Auto mirror comes with a gasket and everything and we'll go on there and fix your broken mirror. Now, obviously this one's fine so we're going to reinstall it and that's really just a reversal of procedure.

Push the mirror on. Get all three bolts on first and then when you tighten these up you want them firm but you don't want to tighten them too much because it is a plastic mirror and you don't want to break studs right out of the plastic. You put your foam on, the tab on the plastic piece that goes behind and then start your Phillip screw and then tighten it up. Then you're all set.

We hope this helps you out. Brought to you by . Your source for quality replacement parts and the best service on the internet. Please feel free to call us toll free 888-844-3393. We're the company that's here for you on the internet and in person.
