#1 of 4 Power Mirror Wiring
Jul 21, 2008 (10:31 am)
Hi folks. Nothing in my search so heree goes...
I need to replace the driver side mirror on the wife's Jimmy(car wash accident). I have a replacement coming but I can't figure out how to get at the wiring harness plug inside the mirror??
I called the dealership and was told there were 3 screws, but I certainly can't find them...
Any advice as to how to get at the mirrors internals so I can disconnect the old mirror and connect the new mirror to the harness?
Thanks a million for your help!

I've taken mine off my Nissan and looked at a friend's Tacoma - both of our side mirrors come off by removing three bolts. The bolts are hidden behind a plastic fascia that just snaps in. Maybe yours is similar?
This may help too.

I've had the mirror off the car.
The mirror is held to the door by 3 nuts that fasten to 3 threaded studs inserted into 3 plastic bosses on the mirror frame. The plastic bosses are broken. I have epoxy holding them right now but I don't expect it to last very long.
If the mirror assembly itself has any bolts or fasteners, they certainly are hidden well. I suspect they are behind a 'snap in' panel as you mention, but my question is, which panel is the one that 'snaps in'?
Of course, once the replacement mirror arrives, I can experiment on the old one and pry all I like to discover the 'secret panel'. I was just hoping a member could share which panel was the 'secret panel'.
Thanks for your reply.

Ah, gotcha. Yeah, I don't know how to dismantle mine much further than taking it off the car. It's full of epoxy too, and I have to reglue it every year or so.
Good luck with it!
