I believe you can buy just the mirror glass, call your local Chevy dealer parts department. Tell them year and model and that you want just the outside mirror glass for both sides.

Well if you are going to have someone replace the mirror glass call around to glass replace shops and get an estimate. I think the glass shops would be the cheapest, they order and work with glass every day.
#2039 of 2171 Strange electrical issue - ecm or alternator related?
Aug 18, 2006 (8:49 am)
I have a 2000 Z24 convert., purchased used in 2002 with 10K mile, now has 67K miles. Have always noticed brightening/dimming of lights with concurrent speed changes in blower motor fan speed since we have owned the car, but it did not seem to affect anything other than to be slightly annoying. Yesterday my daughter was driving the car and noticed that the speedometer went to 0 [she was doing about 35 at the time], all the warning lights started flashing on the dashboard and the engine cut off. I had it towed home. It now starts and runs fine, the alternator puts ~14V across the battery. I am unable to recreate the 'surge/sag' observation with the car sitting in the driveway so I can't see if the alternator is cutting out. Battery is ~1 year old. Anybody have any ideas regarding where I should look next? Does anyone think ECM is involved? ---Thanks!

Problem solved - but just in case somebody else runs into the same symptoms....I removed the alternator [pain] and had it tested. It is a 105 amp alternator but during test it would sometimes produce ~50 amps and sometimes produce nothing at all [explains the surge/sag I observed]. Guy running the test said it was unusual, they normally just fail all the way - that's why I wouldn't get a warning lamp to illuminate on the dash since it didn't fail hard. $99 and tax later and the rebuilt alternator is installed - now if I can just get the vbelt back on......
#2041 of 2171 Need help with information on power windows, for 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier
Aug 29, 2006 (8:34 am)
I have had this problem with my power window for along time now. The window goes down fine with no problems, but when you go to put the window up the window moves up maybe 1/4 of an inch then stops. You must then wait about 3 mins to try again and usually it will go up another 1/4 of an inch. If you dont wait the 3-5 mins the window will do nothing when you press the button. So I decided to take the door apart. I unplugged the power cord to the window motor, and then removed the white piece that it was attached to. When I removed this the motor brushes' fell out and so did the springs. I managed to find them lol. I noticed that there was lots of gresee all over the brushes and the motor armature. I cleaned the gresee and inspected the brushes but they dont seemed to be very worn. Now The biggest problem I have now I finding a way to get the brushes to stay on the springs and get them pushes back enough to get them back in place (seems impossible). But before I try that I want to make sure that this is may be the cause of the failing power window. Any information would be appreicaited ! thanx! wayner.

I have a 95 Chevy Cavalier and it is damned reliable. I just bought it several months ago. The only detracting feature is that the rubber trim surrounding the exterior rear windows has hundreds of cm. sized dots of either mold or mildew. I've tried armorall various times, alcohol, peroxide, Mothers brand crap for restoring bumpers and rubber. Nothing seems to work. I even tried weed killer on it. Is there anything I can do. (Will bleach damage the rubber) Thanks.

I have had good results with mildew remover [smells like there is some bleach in it], purchased in either the boat supply section or RV section of local walmart. Sorry don't remember exact name of the stuff, but if you don't see it ask one of the folks there. You spray the stuff on, wait a minute or 2, then scrub with a scrub brush [mine has plastic bristles]. After it dries, follow up with whatever type of protectant you prefer...good luck.
