I just got done replacing my rear shocks.
Not to bad.
Leaving the front ones for the weekend.
But since I ordered all kinds of parts that are needed, I figured I can get smalled things done till the weekend.
Like replacing the shattered mirror on the driver side that kept me from passing inspection.
I can tilt it to the point where i got pliers in there and removed the 2 heating wires that are connected.
But how does the whole thing come off.
I'm looking @ the new one and it has a sort of rail setup , but how do I pull?
Pull in towards, driver window, out towards left side of the car, or just straight up pull it off with as many pressure points as possible?
I don't care about breaking the mirror it's garbage already, but I don't what to break any bracket on the mirror casing itself by pulling the glass out the wrong way.
Help please, I still have oil on my hands so I'm in the middle of doing this, i'll be tuned in to this page for a quick anwser.
BTW, on the how to archive they only tell you how to remove the entire mirror not just the glass.
Thanks!

I have a broken mirror on the passerger side- rather than go to the trouble- I bought a replacment mirror at autozone- just cut it to size and peel the backing and stick it on- not the best but the easiest.

IIRC, the only way to replace the glass on or mirrors is to replace the whole assembly. At least, that's the only way Ford offers it. [:(]

Not true bud, the mirror glass is ava under base # 17k707 for these. If you have trouble finding that, try a vin# for a svt and run that base on HVBOM.

I'm starting to hate my job. Ford makes us look in 3,000,000,000,000,000,000 different places and makes us look like eye dee ten tees. I looked on three different catalogs before I found it. Thanks, Mike!
