Hi, I'm Don 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're going to show you how to replace the power mirror switch on this 2006 Chevy Impala, pretty much the same for any 2006 to 2012 Impala. The only tools you'll need are a small flat blade screwdriver and a T30 Torx driver.

In the inner door handle, you'll find a little rubber mat. Use a little pocket screwdriver and pull that out. Then beneath that, you're going to find two Torx 30 screws. Use a Torx 30 bit, and socket wrench and driver. I'll be using an extension as well to get down to those. We're going to remove those. Once you have those out use a little small pocket screwdriver and pry up on that black plastic housing, there, that holds the handle and the switch pack assembly. You're going to find three connectors. Remove the three connectors by pressing in on the tabs and pulling them out.

You can use a small screwdriver and there are three tabs that hold the mirror switch in. You need to carefully work your screwdriver between the bezel and the switch, and get those tabs released. We're also pressing on the top side of the switch with our finger there as we pry. Then you work the switch loose.

Then, obviously, the new switch goes right in the opposite way. Plug the three connectors back into the master switch pack, into your power mirror switch. Set the handle and switch pack assembly back in, and start to reinstall your Torx 30 screws. Reinstall those Torx 30 screws; tighten them down. Then place that mat back on top of them.
