i can do that,my questiojn was how to do it without taking off the darn panel

Expert:  K. Wiggins replied 1 year ago.
Taking of the panel is really the best way to do it. You could roll down the window , remove the mirror and then try to fight it on.

i cant remove the mirror holder,thats what i want to know how to do without removing the panel as i dont have all the special tools i have a chikltons manual and it says what u said thats why i am asking how to get the outside mirror holder off without taking the panel off

Expert:  K. Wiggins replied 1 year ago.
You should be able to pop the plastic cover off the mirror with a screwdriver then access the two bolts that hold it. Let me know if that works
