Finding the Right Mirror for Your Vehicle

Car mirrors are very important safety components that let you see other vehicles when you're driving. Despite being very important, it's amazing how car mirrors become damaged so easily. The thing is, the slightest bump can shatter a vehicle's mirror to smithereens and when that happens, you would feel like you're already blind because mirrors provide a lot of visibility.

Before buying a replacement mirror for your car, here are three of the most basic mirrors used in most vehicles today.

Driver's side view mirror

As the name implies, this type of side mirror enables the driver to see motorists from the side and behind. By simply using this side mirror, a driver will be able to easily make a decision when driving on the road, lessening the chance of an accident from happening.

Passenger's side view mirror

Unlike the driver's side mirror, the passenger' side view mirror is convex in shape and that means most things that you'll see appear bigger than they actually do. Because of its convex shape, passenger's side view mirrors provide an extremely broad line of sight of things that are positioned behind the car.

When replacing a damaged passenger's side view mirror, you have to consider the "convexity" of the mirrors that your car has because the convexity actually varies from vehicle to vehicle.

Rear view mirror

One of the most useful mirrors installed to vehicles today is the rear view mirror. As the name implies, this type of mirror lets you see vehicles that are positioned behind your vehicle.

These days, there are two types of rear view mirrors used: prismatic and dimming. Prismatic rear view mirrors have a basic design and their angles can actually be changed so you'll have an easier time seeing vehicles behind you. On the other hand, dimming rear view mirrors are relatively new innovations and basically, they have sensors that detect the amount of light in the surroundings. Depending on the light available, the sensors lessen the "reflective" capability of the automatic dimming rear view mirrors, allowing the driver to see better.

Towing mirrors

Towing mirrors are used when you're not able to see the entire length of your trailer. These mirrors reduce your "blind spot" and as a result, you're most likely to not hit anything when you're on the road.

The reason why the blind spot gets bigger is when your trailer is taller or longer than your vehicle. When this happens, you really need to equip your vehicle with reliable towing mirrors.

It's important that you choose the right mirror for your car. Mirrors are crucial components that help you always be safe on the road.

How to Replace Your Side-View Mirror

Losing a side-view mirror can be extremely frustrating. It's one of those things you don't miss until they're gone. Fortunately, there's no 7-year string of bad luck to worry about here. Replacing your side-view mirrors is an easy job you can do yourself. Note: Steps in this guide are easier than they appear.

Difficulty Level: Easy

Here's what you'll need:

  • Screwdriver
  • Torx driver
  • Pry tool
  • Socket wrench
  • Any small, clear container
  • Replacement side-view mirror
  • Vehicle owner manual

Step 1: Roll down the window on the same side of the damaged mirror then shut your vehicle off.

Step 2: Open the hood of your vehicle and use the socket wrench to disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery terminal.

Step 3: Remove the interior door panel by first removing the trim pieces with your pry tool. Use your screwdriver to remove the screws keeping the panel in place. A corner trim piece may also need to be removed before the door panel can come off. Put all the screws in the small container so you don't misplace them.

Step 4: If you're replacing a power-controlled mirror, unplug the wiring harness by pulling off the connectors with your fingers.

Step 5: Use your socket wrench to remove the mirror bolts then pull out the entire mirror assembly. Put the bolts in the container.

Step 6: Pull the mirror off the mirror assembly. Use your torx driver to remove the screws then pry off the plastic tabs on the backing until the mirror is free of the assembly.

Step 7: Install the new mirror to the assembly. Snap it into the backing with the tabs.

Step 8: Put everything back together by following the reverse order of disassembly. Reuse all the screws and bolts you removed (or replace them with new ones if necessary).

Refer to your vehicle's manual for specific information that may require you to deviate from these general instructions.
