The Honda CR-V makes it simple to replace a power mirror. Most vehicles require a complete door panel removal, but the CR-V has a separate mirror panel that saves time when replacing an old or broken mirror. The CR-V's mirror replacement is the same for all model years.

    Remove Old Mirror

  1. 1

    Lower the side window of your CR-V all the way down, then disconnect the negative battery cable.

  2. 2

    Unsnap the triangle mirror panel inside the door by prying it off with your hands.

  3. 3

    Remove the bolts that hold the mirror in place using a screwdriver and wrench.

  4. 4

    Unplug the electric connector to the mirror. Take the mirror completely out of the assembly.

    Install New Mirror

  1. 1

    Place the new Honda CR-V mirror into place. Attach the mounting bolts that holds it to the door.

  2. 2

    Re-connect the power wire by snapping the new connector into the power source.

  3. 3

    Put the interior mirror cover (the triangle piece) into place by pushing it back in until it snaps.

  4. 4

    Connect the negative battery cable as your last step. Test the mirror to make sure it works.

Tips and warnings

  • Removing a cold or frozen mirror can cause it to crack and cause injuries. Make sure the mirror is warm before starting any repair.
  • Warranties in most cars, including the CR-V, are void if you repair any part of the vehicle yourself.
