    Holy carp, I just checked car-part.com and there's junkyards that want $300 for it. The cheapest ones want $40 with peeling/scratched chrome, no glass, heat not working, or for the chrome cover only. WTF?

    since my spring is rusted....when I get home I will prob just buy some 03 power fold mirrors and wire them in. Will the plastics from the 01' mirrors I already sanded work on the 03's?

    Thanks for the info, Took mine off I didn't bother taking the arm part off just put a bag around it and painted around it. I really don't want to cut the spring. You wont see that part anyways?

    for those with 99-02 mirrors,my spring released one day, thus making the mirror flop around. what i did to fix it was, it cut a grove around the metal part that the spring fits around, i then used a c lamp and a large socket to push the spring and retaining ring down, once he retaining ring locked into the grove i cut, it stayed just fine.

    How to disassemble 03+ power mirrors.

    well i couldn't find very clear pictures of the difference of the 99-02 mirrors & the 03+ mirrors so i figured i'd make a little write up for ya'll while i did mine. these are off my 05 & are power, power fold, heat & auto dimming.

    of course, first take the mirror off & take the glass out
    [​IMG]

    remove the 4 torx shown in here, 3 are T20 & the lower left is a T15
    [​IMG]

    fold the mirror back to reveal this clip & remove the mirror ring, the front will not come off of the 03+ yet & i'll show you why in a few pics
    [​IMG]

    there is a white zip tie in this pic that keeps you from pushing the wiring harness thru the mirror base, cut it off
    [​IMG]

    pull the harness loose from the white clip & remove the T20 @ the top of the base (right side of pic) i'll show you why later
    [​IMG]

    remove the 2 T20s shown here
    [​IMG]

    pull the mirror off the motor
    [​IMG]

    now you can access these 3 T20s (only 2 are shown)
    [​IMG]

    now remove the motor from the base & pull out the door side of the harness
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    shown here is the hidden T20 thats holding the front side of the mirror plastic (you can't get to it unless the mirror is slid off the motor)
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    slide the motor back in to keep from damaging the wires
    [​IMG]

    now back to the base, the T20 that you removed earlier & 2 clips are all that holds the metal into the plastic
    [​IMG]

    finally, remove this white clip to make it easier to install the wiring harness when you're putting them back together
    [​IMG]

    and you're done

    Sweet! How do you get the mirror out without breaking it?
