This video is brought to you by 1AAuto.com, your source for quality parts and the best service on the internet. Visit us at www.1AAuto.com. In the interest of keeping the video short, we did skip the part about removing the door panel. If you'd like to see a detail on removing your door panel, please see our other videos.

We've removed the door panel and now, here is the mirror and you pull this pad away and you can see three 10mm bolts and you just loosen those bolts. The mirror is usually kind of adhered on there just by age unless you've had some damage to it, maybe broken free but one. See there. Then, the mirror is off.

Now, we've painted our new mirror and we're going to do the same thing that feeds the cord right through. Here going there and we're going to make sure the cord doesn't get caught in there at all. Then, we're going to thread and that's on. That's threaded on and now you're going to snug them. Not too much, maybe five or six foot pound which is just kind of tight with your hand. Notice I'm just going to hold it like this. You don't want to be too tight because you don't want to break the base of the mirror or anything. Stuff your pad back in. Then, we'll put the door panel back on and you'll be all set. Thank you for watching. We hope this helps you solve your automotive problem.
