Lexus GS300h door mirror casing strip down

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how to strip down a door mirror to replace the casing? (2013 Lexus GS300h L/H door mirror)

The usual method of stripping the mirror is to tilt the mirror upwards as far as it will go. Then lifting the bottom edge of the mirror glass with as many fingers as you can firmly pull the glass from it's clips at the bottom, and then unhooking the top clips.
The rest is then a matter of undoing the self tapping screws now visible.

It will help to release the glass if you blow warm air from a hair dryer behind the mirror glass to soften the plastic making the clips easier to release.
