I have searched and found nothing and tried several ways of saying it.

The TSRM calls them remote controlled mirrors. I need to replace the guts of an 83 mirror with the housing of an 84 to put back on the 84. The 84 housing looks best or i would just swap out since it doesn't work any longer.

I have it off the Vehicle. The is the spring loaded Mechanism that makes it so you cannot get to the internal parts to swap out good motor and parts to good housing. Does anyone know how best to dissemble this now that i have it off the car.

Thanks

Mirror popped-off on my '83 - it's held on by 2 plastic posts/connectors - here's the passenger side removed:


IIRC '84+ is a different plug than '83 so you'll have to do some pin/connector swapping.

Ok....Thanks Tom i didn't even consider it would be from the mirror side. I just did it and discovered the problem is the plastic is broken where The spring screws in to the housing. that was what was preventing the motor from moving. I love it when you find one problem now is two.

Thank you for the help
