Sideview mirror glass

Post by usmcgunner27 »

Im looking to swap the mirror from my stock sideview mirrors, to painted mirrors. Anyone know how to get the mirrors out without breaking them?

I know the instructions are in the service manual, I have seen them there, but I have not done it in recent times, so can't describe it ATM. However I do have a Scorpio service manual reprint for sale. Has all the updates too. $50.00 plus $16.00 shipping from Mead CO 80542...

To remove the entire mirror assembly:
Remove interior cover [screw hidden under cap]. 3 screws under the cover to remove mirror.

Now you know all there is to know about Scorpio door mirrors ;)
