#6 of 15 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee: Driver Side mirror
Sep 16, 2008 (7:14 pm)
Tonight I came out to my car to find my driver side mirror (just the reflective piece) knocked out of the holder ( I guess that's what you call it) and laying on the floor. It doesn't look broken to me, but does anyone know if these can easily snap back into place? I couldn't try tonight because it was dark.

Again I Thank You for your help on this. I will check the torque. I pull the wheels myself to check the brakes, but never considered the lug torque when replacing the tire. Make alot of sense to me. Thanks.

That should snap right back in... push firmly until you hear it click in... than adjust the mirror up... down... left.... and right... that will "suck" the mirror in the rest of the way... do not try to force the mirror glass back in all the way you have to use the adjuster to make it seat correctly... the mirror glass should only go in so far once you give it the initial snap.... the rest will be accomplished by adjusting it... hope it works for you !!!

Will this also work for the 04 model? I need to replace the driver side mirror and was not sure how to remove the mirror. It is a heated and dimmer mirror. Does it just pop out and snap in the new one?

It will just pop out... it may require you to use a small pocket screw driver to assist in removing it. The mirror glass will snap out eventually, it will seem like your going to break the mirror but it will come out with no problems... like I said it is hard to find just a mirror glass, I would direct you to certi-fit to replace the whole mirror assemble... it will be heated but it will not auto-dim, its up to you but that mirror glass will come out, but be prepared to expect a fairly decent price just for that mirror glass. A new mirror from certi-fit cost about 30 dollars and that is the enire mirror assembly

Update on the mirror, I ordered a kool view replacment mirror. Cost was 48.95 with shipping. The mirror looks just like the factory one which is how they discribed it to look. Bolt pattern was like the factory one as well, just as they stated. Problem I ran into was the harness was about 4 inches too short. I just took the old harness and cut the wires off it to make up the difference. The mirror does have a slight vibration to it, but that I can live with. The dealer wanted 440.00 just for the factory mirror. It also doesn't have the memory option but does have remote and defrost mode. All said, it took about 1/2 an hour to replace. I didn't use certi fit only because they do not ship and the closest store to me is about 45 minutes away in New Jersey. Bridge toll at 4 dollars plus the price of gas was worth the 14 dollars to have it delivered to my home. E-bay was my option. Thanks again
#15 of 15 Mirror stabilizer on 04 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Mar 09, 2010 (4:19 pm)
Both driver and passenger exterior mirrors will not stay stabilized. Very strange that this happened simultaneously and am wondering if the midnight auto supply may have absconded with something that kept them in place. The plate or access panel on the bottom of the mirror housing is gone. They are not heated. Is there a way to tighten them to avoid replacing the whole mirror?
