Removing the old mirror.
Now, you need to remove the old mirror from your Optima. Look for the triangle shaped cover on the inside of the door. Pop it off an then unscrew the three nuts holding the mirror in place. Pop off the electrical connection and remove the old mirror.

Install the new mirror.
Just the opposite of the removal. Insert the new mirror into the door, attach the electrical connector and tighten the three nuts. Reattach the triangle shaped panel and you are done.

You now have your ride back in one piece and can see to your sides again. Couldn’t be an easier repair.
