Bad day, mirror gone

I was backing my camper, in the shed, something I have done a number of times, but this time I took the drivers side mirror off. Can any body tell me how hard it is to replace. It is a 02 blazer, remote control, and heated. I haven't had a chance to look at it, it happened about a hour ago, just park it and went in the house.

Why not just put the mirror back on, in the opposite sequence that you used to take it off?

BridgeMan45,
I think he took it off by accident.

I don't know specifically about the blazer, but it should be the same or similar.
All my vehicles with the plastic molded mirrors had two or three bolts that are found under the A-piller (plastic cover that runs along the side of the windshield inside).
Basically remove the A-piller (some pry out, others have a screw or two) and locate the bolts. You should also see the wiring harness plug there for your power (heated if included) controls. Pretty straight forward.

About 50 bucks on-line for an aftermarket replacement.

Thanks a lot tow guy, that fits right in my price range. I though it would be a lot more then that. Should be even cheaper used.

Aftermarket and used are pretty close to the same price these days.
Here in Canada, it was $50 for a new mirror on my old Neon or ~$45 for a used one.

Bad day, mirror gone

It looks like most cars have their mirror fitted the same way.

You are the lucky ones. Mirror for my Camry costs approx $180 for used or aftermarket and $280 for genuine.
Good luck, Tony

Not sure if it's the exact model....but I found one for $26.75+shipping.

TonyDet...same place shows $36.75 for a 2009 Camry that I used for an example.


If they are body color...you'd have to have them painted.

Not sure why this thread was resuscitated from May, but I bought power mirror for Eclipse I sold summer time, off internet, SAME COLOR AS CAR for $16 plus shipping. Some outfit in SC. Huge junk yard.
