    Side mirrors not moving when parking

    Hi Everyone, I have a 2014 Ford Explorer XLT. The other day I clipped a mailbox and the mirror and cap popped off. It was an easy fix and the mirrors seem to be working fine, for the most part. They power adjust when I am doing it with the buttons on the driver side door. However, since the...

    Driver's side Mirror fell off

    I went to close my door one day, and suddenly, the mirror fell straight off. Luckily into a pile of snow, but still off. (see pic) I know i will more than likely have to replace it, but is there a way i can buy only the glass and the bracket to mount to the back of the mirror.

    Gen 4 mirrors on Gen 3 4 Door

    Hey guys - just wanted to take a few minutes and confirm that yes, this swap does work. I picked up my 4th Explorer, a 2004 Eddie Bauer 4.6 4x4, back in March and was disappointed that it still had the same small mirrors that my 2000 has. Especially after driving my F-150, I find them to be...

    Rearview Mirror Rework (95 - 98)

    As many threads have reported the heavier rear view mirror (the one with all the Auto head light off timer and mirror sensors in it) tends to want to shiver or vibrate. This thread addresses removal AND a rework method that does not involve glue. None of my...

    Passenger Mirror Damage

    Mom was driving the '08 EB. Damage on the other car was a lot worse. Anyone have any ideas if it would hold if the mirror was just popped back in place? https://www.dropbox.com/sh/zypvf6o0lu85mge/YdpfJK4AEf Thanks.

    Power Mirror Repair

    I accidently hit the driver's side view mirror while washing my 2002ST the other day and apparently one of the tension springs popped out of it's bracket.

I was planning on doing a swap with the 2nd gen mirrors with the heated...
