    Replacing driver side mirror?

    How hard is this? I have two problems with it: there has been just enough vibration at speed to make it impossible to know what you are looking at. Just the mirror though, the housing seems fine. Now recently there has been a brown haze developing on it. Starting from the outside in. Not sure what that's about but it seems like a replacement is in order.... ?

    I replaced just the glass through the dealer because of that hazing. Cost me 400$. Hopefully price has gone down since

    It can be a DIY without removing the housing from the door. SM shows how.

    Re: Replacing driver side mirror?

    The Mirror is EASY... the Door Panel is a PITA!

    Try http://sm.gpona.com:9001/si/home.do... .... User: srx1gen... Pass: srx1gen...

    http://sm.gpona.com:9001/si/showDoc....&cellId=150447

    or search "outside mirror replacement"

    Basically...

    Lower Window...
    Ensure door is "unlocked"...
    Remove Door Lock Plunger surround...
    Remove Upper Trim Benzel and Retainer(s) ...
    Remove access covers by handle, then screws (2)...
    Remove Speaker Grill and Speaker...
    Remove Door Panel - clips, then lift.

    You can now access the mirror mounts...

    Disconnect electrical harness to mirror...
    Remove 3 screws holding mirror.
    Remove Mirror - route harness through hole.

    Install in reverse.


    Have a beer...

    May not need to do all that door panel removing stuff if you can get a replacement glass and pop the bad glass off - Tilt mirror all the way down and 'carefully' pry old glass off. or have someone experienced with the technique do it!

    What does SM stand for? Realized it probably means "Service Manual" after I posted this?

    Re: Replacing driver side mirror?

    That password provided for the SM.GPONA website is not working anymore. Wonder if that account got deleted. Anyway, my dad's 2004 SRX is experiencing the hazing over the driver's side mirror. it old him I'd fix it (I was looking for replacement assemblies) but if you can indeed just replace the glass part, that would be 1000x better for me (and cheaper).

    Since I don't have the SM, I'm having a hard time figuring this out.

    I found these on Amazon. Is this what I need? Or is this something different?
    http://www.amazon.com/2004-2009-CADI.../dp/B005ZS1RC2
    http://www.amazon.com/2004-2009-CADI.../dp/B0060KKL08

    My dad's '04 SRX does have the defrosting mirror capability, so I would assume I would get the 2nd one? There seems to be a slight size difference.

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: Replacing driver side mirror?

    Any luck? I'm trying to replace the GLASS ONLY on the driver's mirror as well. Got the "brown haze of doom" creeping down so now I can't see much of anything.

    Hi. Did you get the vibration fixed?
    I have same problem on my passenger side.
    It looks like there are some clips missing.
    Anyone knows how to fix it?
    Thanks

    Re: Replacing driver side mirror?

    I just did this on my own. It's somewhat of a pain, but can be done in less than an hour. I have photos and can give you detailed instruction. I'm too busy to upload a guide now, but feel free to PM me if you want info. This is for install of the GLASS only, not the housing.
