As I was seeking this information to replacing a door mirror, I am assuming that others may be as well. So I thought I would share a YouTube video I found which was the best I reviewed.

It's cool that you posted the video. The other videos didn't show that you're supposed to put the lip of the door panel into the groove before popping the door pins in. If you do it the way that the other guys show it, the door will pop in but there will be a small gap at the top that looks terrible. I've seen it at least 9,000 times.

That explains why all 4 of my panels have a gap up top. Fail on me,I thought there was something missing.

Another trick you can use for not loosing the bolt is to put one wrap of electrical tape around the bolt and socket. Start the bolt in the threads a turn or two, and pull the socket and tape off the bolt, remove tape and then continue to tighten the bolt.
