Carefully pull/pry the broken glass holder from the mirror assembly.
Disconnect the heated mirror electrical connectors from the terminals on the mirror glass holder, if equipped.
CAUTION: It is important to make sure the motor is square to the glass holder (attaching fingers) prior to glass holder attachment, otherwise the glass holder could be installed incorrectly causing poor retention and possible repeat failure.
Position the new mirror glass holder to the mirror assembly.
NOTE: Position the mirror glass holder so that the moisture drain hole on the mirror glass holder assembly is facing downward.
Align the mirror glass holder's attaching fingers to the mirror motor housing.
NOTE: Ensure that the protective rubber cover of the mirror motor housing is positioned correctly around the bottom of the fingers area.
Using one hand, firmly press the mirror glass holder assembly into place while at the same time supporting the housing assembly from the backside with the other hand.
NOTE: Pressure must be applied equally over the center portion of the mirror to engage the mirror glass holder's attaching fingers to the corresponding fingers on the housing assembly. One or more clicks may be heard when finger engagement takes place.
Verify retention of the mirror glass holder assembly by gently pulling outward on the mirror glass holder.
