To remove the mirror do i have to remove the entire door panel to get to the screws, or can i just remove the triangular piece alone.

P.S. Where can i just get the glass piece of the mirror to save this trouble, my local dealer won't sell me just the glass.

You can remove the mirror just by the plastic piece, but if you want to disconnect the wire to the mirror you have to remove the door panel.

You can get glass at most glass shops, but if the bracket is broken than you prolly need a new mirror. This happened to me because an 18 wheeler pushed me over and the mirror hit a barrel on the highway, I had to get a whole new mirror and it doesn't match the car :(.

yeah if you have power mirrors you're gonna have to take of the door panel to disconnect the wire for it. Otherwise it's just taking off the triangular piece and unbolting it.

Yes, the clip is broken.
do i need to get the whole mirror (motor and all) or just the clip and glass? (i just broke the glass trying to force the broken clip onto the motor)

It depends when I was talking to someone they said well where was it made. Than he said I needed a whole new mirror because just getting the backing and the mirror and throwing it on wouldn't like hold up or something like that. Not sure if he was just trying to screw me over though.

You DO NOT have to take off the door panel. I have power mirrors and had one of mine broken by a truck as well and i've taken it off several times. The door panel does not have to be removed, you just take of the triangular trim and then remove the bolts and then just disconnect the harness and thats all

you can pry it right off. The door panel isn't what holds the triangle in place, its just clips like everything else on the Camry.

Thanks for the help, I got the triangle cover off.
I did not see a harness, but to replace the motor and wire i guess i still have to remove the door panel.
This is a last resort if i cannot get just the glass and clip replaced.
On www.Partznet.com has anyone found out what a filler is? Its under the mirror category.

Pull the handle cover off. It eventually pops off. Its just very stubborn. Try pulling it from the right side. Careful it dosn't pop into your face though.

And about the mirror, I know they sell mirror kits in Autozone. I dont know how good those are though. You just cut and paste them.
