2000FFocusLX Oh damn I didn't see you dropped that bolt. I came VERY close to doing that a few times. Thank god I didn't.. Sorry to hear that I know that's a REAL pain in the ass right there!!

2000FFocusLX I did this exact same thing on a 2000 a few days ago. There is a I believe 8mm socket in the middle from the inside and also an allen head if i remember right. I used a flathead screw driver though cause it fit and it's what I had at the time. Other than that feed the wires through clip it back on bada-bing-bada-boom. My thing is, though, the mirror is not flush with the door... I took it off and tried again 3 times and it's still not completely flush..

Please post on here if you have the same issue!!

clockwerkj Thanks! I'll try that first. I found a vid on how to cut it back and replace it.

sam fisher Wow , thats a hell of a bump . I think you can get into there by removing the door card. Its not too hard / time consuming

clockwerkj Like a Dummy I dropped the bolt inside the door steel. I need to retrieve it, so should i go thru the speaker hole with a magnet stick or peel up the weather strip at the bottom?

illinipo oh ya i forgot that one too.

just a technicality though... its not a "torque" screw.... it is a "torx" screw. T25 I think.

Grimmy311 You forgot one step CKA, there is a torque screw that also holds the mirror on, its on the inside of the door behind the "triangle", dont break that off otherwise your mirror will fit loose and vibrate when you drive.

CKA ^^Yep, thanks Peter!

illinipo "take off the triangle"

This triangle is on the INSIDE. it is also known at the sail panel. where the mirror adjustment knob or dongle is.

CKA Take off the triangle, just pops off, then locate the 10mm bolt and use a socket, with a long extension to reach it, unscrew and it comes off, but you need to again pop it off.
The mirrors should be plug and play, if powered. Dunno about manual.
Good luck.
