      To remove the door trim, you will first need to remove the small speaker on the corner of the door panel. Use some muscle to wiggle it out, then disconnect the wires.

      Once you have removed the speaker, you will need to take out 5 screws in total. The 3 around the periphery are easiest, they are nut-head style screws. The one in the armrest is under a rubber protector which you can just lift out. This one requires a special type of bit (Torx) so make sure you have it before you start this.
      The screw in the door handle is a little tricky to get to; you will need to remove the plastic covering by getting behind it through the edges and pulling out. You may use use a thin s-hook for this.

      Now that you have removed the speaker and screws, you will again need to use some muscle to pull out the trim. Start from the corner near the lock and work your way around - prying it off. It will sound like you broke something each time a clip comes out, this is normal. There are a number of retainers near the top as well. Just pull up and out
      Now that the trim is out, you can rest it on something under the door, unless you want to disconnect all the wiring and door latch if you want to remove it altogether.
      To remove the mirror, you will need to pop out the rubber caps. They come right off, exposing the nuts inside.

      To remove the nuts, you will need a ratchet, with an adaptor to reach the somewhat deep nuts, and a deep 10 mm socket since there is a good bit of thread running through them. There are 3 in total.

      Make sure you do not let the nuts fall into the door!
      For this, you can use some thin cardboard as a type of funnel - to have them slide out as they came loose. Use your imagination.

    The turn signal indicator in passenger door mounted rear view mirror was damaged in a parking lot. How is the assy. removed? Does entire mirror have to be removed? This is not the arrow type stuck to the backside of the mirror-it's the actual amber/clear plastic ...

      Probably snapped the window lift cable. The power window regulator assembly will need to be replaced.

      If you removed the door panel and replaced the window lift assembly yourself - the cost is minimal; maybe $50.00 - $70.00 for the power window lift and motor assembly as a unit. Check the 'How-To-Guides' feature on the AutoMD website for these steps.

      Check these various on-line vendors; www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.RockAuto.com, www.partsgeek.com, to list only a few. For example, they (RockAuto) list the power window motor and regulator from around $50.00 for your vehicle.

      Check the instrument panel fuse block. APO--fuse 14--20 amp fuse. Not only check the fuse, use a testlight, check for voltage on the fuse circuit. Go from there.

      Does the radio required a pass-code to operate ? No,

      Disconnect the both battery terminals for twenty minutes. Prior for the cables re-installation, rub the both terminals together for a minute to de-energize any electrical charges left in the instrument clusters.

      Note: this trick worked in my 92 Dodge Caravan and it's still running for the last 3 years.

      There is no accurate method to provide an auto body repair quote or estimate via the internet. Recommend to take the vehicle to a local auto body repair shop to obtain an inspection and quotes.
