Hi, I'm Mike from 1A Auto. We've been selling auto parts for over 30 years.

Hey, everyone. Sue here from 1A Auto. Today, I'm going to show you how to remove the outside driver's mirror on an '03 Volvo V70. If you need any parts for your car, click on the link below and head on over to

First thing you're going to do is remove the cover to the mirror base. Just set that aside. Then we have a plastic piece here that, you can see where it's split a little bit, so you just take a flat blade screwdriver or a body trim tool and peel that back. To get the top, I like to put the screwdriver up here and just push, like that. Set that aside.

Now, they have these body clips that are little push pins. See the center tab, you just take an object, a small screwdriver or a punch and push it in in one step, like that. Then you can take a flat blade screwdriver and just pry it out a little bit, it pops right out. I'm going to go around and do all of them. That one's missing. Now I just grab the panel with my hand, pry it out a little bit, and all these body clips will pop right out. Just one up here.

Then we have two mounting bolts that are a Torx bit star T25. That is located behind that plastic piece on the handle. We're going to take those bolts out. Grab the panel and pull up. Once it's pulled up, you'll see the door panel. This is the cable for the inner handle. Just grab it and pull it off. It's real nice design. Then we have a little mini tutor speaker, and we'll just take that clip out and push down on it. Pry that out, and then we have, the clip is on the back side of this main switch on this green connector. Pull it down. The same with this gray. Pull it out, and you can see the clips. Those are the push pins on the back--the push clips.

First thing I'm going to do is disconnect the harness, and that is the green clip here with this little tab. Push it in and it unplugs. We have one mounting bolt--it's a 13 millimeter socket. I like to leave the window down when I do mirrors so that I can hold onto it when I unbolt the main bolt, or nut in this case. Then you just grab it from the outside and wiggle. Now they made that slot the same exact size--that was mighty nice of them. There's your mirror.

Now to install, we're just going to reverse the procedure. I'm going to slide that harness right through that opening. There's slots for key points here, up on the top. There it goes--mounts. Then we have the mounting nut. Just snug it down. Perfect. Now you're ready to reconnect the harness to the main harness. Just snap it in.

The first thing I like to do is hook up the electrical again. Here's my main power switch. I'm going to put that gray plug in the back. Click it in. On both of them, the push button to release it is located inward. Now I've got my cable here for the door. It's a pretty cool design the way they do this. You don't have to fish that cable into anything, just bring it right in there, and it snaps right in. Now we're going to fish the lock button through. You've got this rail lip. Just slide that rail lip right up there, just like that and bring it down. It's real easy.

Now, at this point, I like to put the mounting bolts in first, only because I want that secure before I put the plastic clips in. This is our T25. They've got the mounting inserts of the plastic mounts in the door already. Okay, going to put the bottom one in. Double check, make sure they're both equally tight. Okay. Now we can install the cover for the plastic handle. Just guide those two pins in, push it down.

Now we have all the push pins that go around. This is what they look like when you push the in piece in, that lock clips goes out, so now you have to reverse it to put it together. You want it to look like that. Put it right in the mounting hole and push in until it snaps once. Then just go all the way around. Last thing to go on was the first thing to go off. You're going to line these plastic tabs up with those inserts--it snaps right on. Now I'm going to go inside, make sure my inner handle works, make sure my lock works, and my windows. Wonderful. Beautiful.
