Default Side mirror replacement

Finally got the side mirrors from ebay for $150/pr.

Question is, how long does it take to replace per side? Any special tools or tips?

Default Re: Side mirror replacement

alot depends on the clips your mirrors have. many of us have recieved mirrors with different clips than in our doors. The mirrors will still work but the wires will need to be soldered to the old plugs. I had LonePalm help me, Thanks again, and if you need help I think i still have the photos and wireing diagram. cant promise i do though. if you dont have to solder then all that is involved is the removal of the door panel removing four nuts off the mirror arm and un plug. installation is just the same but reversed. if you have some one to hold mirror it will go alot quicker. if you have taken door panels off before it will go faster. if not then plan on an hour or two and another half hour if you half to solder.

wish the best

Thanks for the tip. My driver side mirror shakes really bad and need to tackle this soon. If you have the diagram, I really can use it, but if you don't thats okay as well.
Thanks.

I changed my mirrors about a month ago and used this post to do so...the instructions are spot on... ...pretty easy to do. 1st side took me about 45 minutes, the next side was less than 15.

I created a PDF file from the other posting/pictures. PM me your email, I'll send it. It is too large to post here (655Kb, the limit is 20Kb for a PDF).

Default Re: Side mirror replacement

Did you push a warranty coverage issue with dealer and let them cover full bill?

For a while Hummer was furnishing and replacing the old style mirrors with new like they were passing out candy.

Just thought I would mention and good luck. I have switched them out and they are not horrible but, have a second pair of hands to help.

Yes. I have tried two dealers in IL. No one even wants to hear me on the mirror replacement or TSB on the mirror. So, screw them. I did send some nasty mail to Hummer Corp. on this.

I got the very mint used updated mirrors from ebay. I will be switching out this weekend.

05h2sut, Looks good but....I think the 003a pic is suppose to be showing the putty knife removing the button panel that is in 004a pic

Good job though, Ed

Thanks. That really helps. I will do the swap this Saturday and see if there are any added steps or surprises, and take some pictures and post.

Default Re: Side mirror replacement

As stated before, you'll need an extra hand for about 1 minute on each mirror. Someone needs to hold the mirror in place while you screw in 1 nut. If needed, you can get a little creative with tape or a broom handle etc. to hold the mirror.

Good luck.

I just held the mirror with one hand outside the door and started the nut with the other on the inside

Default Different plugs

Well, my worst fear came true. The existing plug is different than the new mirror. I will need to splice the new with existing.
Does anyone have a wiring diagram?

Default Re: Side mirror replacement

I have a schematic for a 2005 - on paper - but no scanner here.

Connecting the door switch to the mirror - there are 2 connectors - on the schematic they are labeled C3 and C4.

C3 is a blue 10 wire connector
C4 is a black 10 wire connector

C3 pin 3 - black - low reference
C3 pin 4 - purple - Mirror sensor low reference

C4
pin 1 - yellow - Mirror extend
pin 2 - orange - Mirror heater supply voltage
pin 3 - red - Mirror horizontal position sensor
pin 4 - dark green - 5 volt reference
pin 5 - dark blue - Mirror vertical position sensor
pin 6 - light blue - Mirror retract
pin 7 - yellow - Mirror common
pin 8 - light blue - Mirror right
pin 9 - light green - Mirror down

Left and right mirrors follow the same pinout/connector numbers

I'll try and scan this tomorrow at someplace local and email it to you, sorry if this doesn't make much sense without seeing the diagram.

-Dave
