View Full Version : S14 side mirror removal

07-16-2001, 09:19 PM
I'm trying to remove my side mirrors so I can repaint them and I'm having some difficulties figuring out how to remove them.  I see 3 screws on the bottom, but I can only get to 1 of them because of the door shape.  If it makes a difference, I do have power mirrors.  Any of you have any tips?  

Thanks in advance!

How do you remove the interior panels around the mirror?  I'm not going to have to remove my interior door panels, am I?  ####, all I want to do is shoot some clear coat on them--this is turning out to be a biatch!  lol

Well, door panels aren't actually that much of a problem. there's a capped screw in the door pull, and a screw up towards the front of the car. Just remove those and they actually just pull off fairly easily. (I had to do this to put new speakers in. Unfortunately, the person that had it before me did the same thing, but wasn't that gentle, and broke the finish piece for the door pull. Gotta spend 30 bux to get a new one...
