Hey all... quick delimma... =)

Some jerk stole my sideview mirrors (power) off my 97 tbird (not the entire assembly, just the mirrors)...

I have a buddy w/ an 89 Cougar that has sideview mirrors (power) that SEEM exactly the same as the ones on my bird...

I want to know how to remove the mirrors (not the assembly, just the mirrors) from his cougar, and put them on my bird, hopefully still being able to use the power mirrors option on my bird...

My main concern is not to damage the mirrors on the coug, not the simple logic of uninstalling and re-installing a mirror...

Thanks in advance,
~Doug

Heres how I removed one of mine. Have your girlfriend drive your car down a highway with construction. She will hit a cone with the mirror assembly and the mirrr will pop out. :mad:

Mine just dropped off when the passenger door was slammed...

reminds me, anyone know what kind of adhesive is used to stick the mirror to the black plastic piece behind it?
