Hi, this is Mike from 1A Auto. I hope this how to video helps you out. Next time you need parts for your vehicle, think of Thanks. In this video, we'll show you how to remove and reinstall a driver side power mirror which is basically the same procedure for the passenger side. This is for a 2003 Saturn Ion, same as any '03 to '07. Only tools you'll need are a flat blade screwdriver and a 10mm socket with a ratchet and extension. Also, a 10mm wrench would work.

Okay, to remove your mirror, you can just pull this panel off by hand or use a screwdriver carefully. It pops off. Right behind here, your mirror is connected. There's a little tab. Pull back on the tab. Disconnect the harness. Then there's three 10mm bolts. One here, then two here. There's your mirror out. Okay, our original is obviously in fine shape. Just doing this video to kind of show you. We'll reinstall it. Put the harness through first. Make sure it goes in place correctly. Okay, start these bolts. Be careful not to drop this one. Reconnect your harness. Make sure to put the insulation back in. Put the trim panel back on.
