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 Thanks!

In this video, we're going to show you how to replace an outside rearview mirror. This is a 2003 Honda Pilot. It's pretty much the same for this generation of Honda Pilot. It's a pretty easy replacement. All you'll need is your hands and a 10mm socket and ratchet or a 10mm wrench.

Start off by pulling the triangle piece at the top off. You pull the top out, and then on the bottom you push in and pull up and out. Then there are three 10mm bolts that hold the mirror on. One is in the door jam, and then two are behind that trim piece. Before you get too far, there's a little tab on the top of the connector. Just push the tab down pull the electrical connector out. Then we'll speed up here as we remove those three 10mm bolts. We're using a socket and ratchet with an extension. You could also just use a wrench to loosen them and then pull them out by hand.

With those bolts out, there are two little clips- Actually, let me finish taking the top bolt out. Then there are two little clips on the connector that hold your mirror, or what's left of your mirror, in. Then you take your mirror off.

New mirrors from 1A Auto are exactly like the originals. You may have to paint them yourself to match, or you could just install them as a black mirror just to fix the problem. You put the new mirror in the exact same way. I'm just reinstalling the original because there's nothing wrong with it. We'll fast-forward here again as we just start in those three 10mm bolts and then tighten them. When you tighten them up, tighten them up nice and firm. You don't want to overtighten them and warp the mirror or break any of the plastic.

With the mirror reinstalled, reconnect the harness, and then put your trim panel back in place. Obviously we showed you on the driver side but the passenger side is the same procedure.

Thanks for tuning in. We hope this video helped you out. Next time you need parts for your car, please visit Also check out our other helpful how-to and diagnosis videos.
