Howdy folks, last week a guy in my squadron ran into my car and knocked the passenger mirror off.
Let me be clear, he did not hit my car with his vehicle. He ran into it while talking to a friend in the parking lot and physically, with his own body, knocked the mirror right off the car.
Yeah, it’s funny to me too, actually
Anyhow, I figure I can replace this sucker myself, but I only have a vague idea how. I don’t think it’s remotely adjustable (if it is, I have never figured out how to adjust it), and I have the replacement mirror already ($25. Yay eBay!)
I went out and bought a set of socket wrenches, but other than that, my tools are a cheap pair of needle nose pliers, a screw driver which can switch between Phillips and Flathead, a Swiss Army Knife, a Stanley claw hammer, and a Blackberry Curve.
I found a tutorial online that indicates that first I should remove the upholstery panel from inside the door opposite the mirror (a little triangular piece; the tutorial mentioned nothing about the rest of the door). Thing is, I don’t have a little upholstery panel, I have a little speaker. How do I get that sucker out?
Beyond that, anything I should keep in mind for replacing this thing, or is it going to be straight forward unscrew the old bolts that used to hold it in, screw the new ones in?
