I broke my electric sideview mirror. Right side. Glass shattered.
The car's a 2000 Sonata.
The motors work fine. Wiring's working, too.
The assembly consists of a "movement sandwich." Plate "A" is the
base plate, on which the motors are mounted. A nylon semi-ball
fits between "Plate A" and "Plate B." Plate A contains the two
pushrods that move the mirror in both planes.
My Plate A seems to be fine, including the pushrods. Plate B
appears to have been damaged.
The entire housing still looks perfect. It's the same color as
I have bought a replacement mirror assembly, complete. I believe
that it's an authentic Hyundai part.
I'm stuck: I want to put as many of the new parts that I need
into the existing housing.
I can't figure out how to get into my new mirror assembly
since the glued-on glass appears to obscure the mounting screws
that I need to get at.
If I push the new mirror glass as far as it can go in a couple of
positions, I belive that I see what look like molded-on fastener
clips. But I don't know how to get at them, nor what kind of tool
I need in order to pop them apart _safely._
At this point, it's probable that the wiring to the motors won't
need work so long as I can use the existing motors. But if I use
the motors, "Plate A," etc, from the new assembly, I'd prefer to
be able to get everything working without having to take the door
apart in order to exchange the electrical connectors. The mirror
housing is attached by screws from inside the door!
Will I find what I need if I struggle enough with the routines on
Hyundai's web site?
Suggestions, please, gentlemen!
