2016 Ford Taurus SE FWD - driver side rear view mirror replacement

Post by PeterNC » Wed Aug 29, 2018 9:32 am

Hi. What do I need to order to replace my driver side rear view mirror? Is this a DIY repair or something I need a shop for? Thank you!

Is it DG1Z-17683-A? I assume left is driver side, right?

definitely a DIY. SUPER easy!

you'll need to make sure you get the right part though - it'll be based on your option level.

1) all should be electric, but who knows
2) puddle lamp
3) blind spot monitoring
4) ?

Depending on your combination of the above options, that will inform which part you need to get.

I have the base 2016 Ford Taurus SE model. I can re-purpose some parts. It just got knocked lose when reversing at my new home. I have a downhill driveway now and knocked into the mailbox. :(

if no heated mirror/blind spot/puddle, you're in better (cheaper) shape than most. in fact, if you buy ebay/used the painted covers can be popped off and reinstalled on the new unit if different colors.

from inside the car, just remove the panel cover and there are three bolts - remove the nuts, expose the electrical connector, disconnect and voila. you're halfway done.
