    Default How to replace a broken side mirror?

    I let my wife drive my truck for about 2 hours and I got it back with a broken driver's side mirror. :cry:

    Anyone have any experience with replacing one? Is it something that I can do? If not, would the dealer be the place to go or to a glass shop?

    Thanks!!

    If it's just the glass that's broken, I think it just pops out. (Carefully!) If you need to remove the whole mirror housing, you need to remove the inside door panel, then remove the holding screws and it will come right off. I have the instructions that came with my Signal Mirrors from Muth and it gives all the details. You might even want to take this "Once in a life time Golden Opportunity" provided by you wife and purchase the signal mirrors since you have to take everything apart anyway.

    You want the broken glass, or the mirror assembly that holds the glass. I'm hoping that I can just replace the glass part of the mirror.....easily.

    Thanks.

    Hey fdjanzen,

    If you go to the Muth web site you can down load the complete instructions as they come in the box for replacement mirror. Read over it and see if You want to tackle the project.

    www.muthco.com

    After you get the product. look for the "down load installation manual here" .

    wellllllll, let's just say, I'm good with electronics, and I am not willing to spend all my money buying MUth mirros. So I will be playing with the factory mirrors. I don't want to take mine off yet, so I can play with a broken one first. Then when it seems right, I'll tear into my good mirrors.

    save the plastic pins that connect the mirrors to the housing mechanics!! Mine wree glued in and the base ball on the pin broke off. Muth does not sell any pins except for a Ford with Muth mirror. Toyota does not sell the pins by themselves and wants to replace the whole assembly if the Muth glass breaks.

    anyone have an old passenger side power mirror assembly. I'm looking for the connector pins that go from the glass to the mechanical fixture within the housing. Just the pins are my interest.
