03 Cobra Mirror Change

How hard is it to change the mirrors on a 03 Cobra. I have 1 that is broken so I just bought a set and am going to change both but im unsure how to do it.

Re: 03 Cobra Mirror Change

you have to get the mach 460 tweeter speaker off, not sure on that, but the rest is not horrible. I dont think you have to take the door panel off.

I just recently changed my mirrors on my 2000 gt. Im sure its the same. The tweeter is just held in by little pop in things. The tweeter just pops right off. I took my whole door skin off tho cuz i wanted to make sure i wasnt gonna break my tweeter. Once u take off the tweeter there are 3 nuts holding the mirror.

I got em changed. Once I figured out what to do it was nothing. The hardest thing to do was plug the damn power mirror plug back in. Lol

Oh, one is broken... I was gonna ask if you were going to sell them.
I haven't changed mirrors but would like to get a set of Cobra ones. I may just paint mine?

cobra mirrors look 10x better than just painted ones though, the little black part of them set them off.... and they fold THATS AMAZING!

Re: 03 Cobra Mirror Change

just replace the glass in the broken mirror and they would be just like new.

Re: 03 Cobra Mirror Change

Well the glass wasnt broken. It looks like the guy who had it before me backed up to close to a wall or something and folded the mirror the wrong way. So I put the mirrors I have on it now till I can find a cobra mirror. I would have left it alone but it flopped around while driving so it made it hard to see out of it.

Re: 03 Cobra Mirror Change

its going to be hard finding two good mirros at a salvage yard from an 03/04 cobra or a 40th anniv v6/GT. they will run you about 150 each~
