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 a side mirror on this 2002 Chevy Suburban. We'll show you on the driver's side, but the passenger's side is a similar procedure. It's the same part and similar process on these Suburbans from 2000 to 2006. The items you'll need for this include a new side mirror from 1AAuto.com and a 10mm socket and ratchet.

Start off by prying off this triangular panel, then remove the insulation foam, pry off on this tab, and just pull this harness free. Remove these three 10mm nuts. Now push in these tabs on the center and just pull the mirror out.

On the right is the old side mirror; on the left is the new one from 1A Auto. If the cap on the back of your old mirror is still intact, you can take that off and put it onto your new mirror, or you can take the cap with your new mirror to an auto-parts store in the paint department, get the matching paint, and spray paint it to match. At 1A Auto, we also offer tow mirrors which will mount exactly the same as the regular mirrors with no additional brackets needed.

Then pry off the cap if you're going to replace your cap. You just want to pry from the top a little bit until you can get your hand back underneath it and then just pull out. Now, to put these caps into place on your mirror, you just line up those tabs and push it straight into place. Take your new mirror and feed the harness back through the door and push those studs into place.

Once you get those center tabs lined up, just push the mirror straight in and then replace those three 10 mm nuts. Reconnect your harness, tuck it back into the door, replace that foam, and then replace that triangular panel. Just push the bottom in first, line up the tabs, and push it back into place. Just to show you what the tow mirrors look like, this is from the front, here's from the back.
