How to replace side view mirror glass?

The side view mirror glass is not repairable. In case of defect signs, the part should be replaced. The replacement algorithm depends on the car model and mirror construction. In some cases, replacement of the glass only is impossible, so the whole mirror unit should be replaced.

You can perform the replacement if you have car servicing experience and a standard tools set. The procedure may vary for cars of different models, so, before starting works, study vehicle technical documentation. Basically, the algorithm of side mirror unit replacement is the following:

  1. Remove the triangle front door cover.
  2. Disconnect the mirror power supply connector.
  3. Holding the construction from the outside, unscrew its fasteners and remove the defective mirror from the door.
  4. Install a new component, reassemble in the reversed order.

If your car design allows to perform replacement of the protective glass, demounting of the side view mirror unit will not be necessary. In that case you need to:

  1. Draw the side view mirror aside to the max.
  2. Carefully pry the glass with the help of a plastic wedge and remove it.
  3. Disconnect wires of glass heating (if they are envisaged in the design.)
  4. Install a new side view mirror glass, reassemble in the reversed order.

Take into account the type of the rear view mirror glass during its selection.
Difficulty of rear view mirror glass replacement depends on the model, configuration and manufacturing year of the car.
