Just did my install. Flawless. Tischer's shipping program was pretty stellar, too. Overall, easy DIY for a tremendous driver safety impact. Thanks for the DIY!

Does it matter which wire is connected to which connector?
I have the wire reversed with the OP's picture.
There is no marking for the polarity.

Default Re: DIY: Replacing E46 sideview mirror glass

Hey guys - Sorry to bring forward an old thread but I'm having issues with my new drivers side mirror.

I got the old mirror off of my 2003. broke it getting it off, but it was junk anyway with all the rust. Cleaned it up and clipped on the new one. Now the new mirror appears to have a warp in it or a bend or something making it look like one of those mirrors at the circus... really hard to look through.

Anyone had this before? anyone have any suggestions on how to fix? I've tried taking it off and on again but the same results. If I press on the top-right it gets better but it doesn't stay. I've checked and it appears that all the clips are on, so that's not pushing it out and the connectors for the wires (now in the top-right) aren't hitting.

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

I'm trying to remove my mirror but for the life of me I do not see this tab that needs to be rotated. Did the design of these mirrors change? I have an '06

Hello,

My driver side mirror is little bit lose, in spot where mirror can be rotate it. My car 2005, so I remove mirror by moving it in lower position (looking to the ground) as possible, it will open the tabs at 10 o'clock and 2 o'clock, so I took a small screwdriver and pry it slow at 10 o'clock first then at 2 o'clock, then wiggle a little and mirror was removed. Installation was in back order, lower part then top, just push.

But I have not be able to fix my problem it seems to me it loose at the rotation hole.

Great thread OP. I have a little different issue. My pass side mirror wont go up or down but only sideways. Any ideas what could be the problem? Wrong wiring or motor?

TIA

What a great post. I am going to be doing this soon since my driver's mirror has a large "rust" mark on the inside.
