I am new to the forum and I am looking for outside mirror parts for my 1995 Chevy LT Suburban. According to the rules in the Marketplace section I cannot post a For Sale item, but that is not what I need to do. I guess the filter just looks at how many posts I have made, and I am not up to 10, so, no go.
Anyway, I have a 1995 Suburban 4x4 that I have owned for 8 years nad my son recently hit a mailbox so the mirror glass broke out of the passenger side mirror. I have checked with the dealer, and I can buy the mirror glass, but not the hardware and it is missing one of the threaded adjustment screws. Does anyone have any idea where I can pick up that adjustment screw? I don't want to buy the whole mirror, but if someone has an mirror that works, and the screw, or just the screw, that would be great.

Welcome to the site. Unless someone has a used mirror they could sell you, I would look at getting an aftermarket replacement. The glass brokeout of the drivers mirror on our 2001 suburban and the dealer wanted $300 for just the glass! I found an aftermarket mirror on autopartswarehouse.com that is a direct replacement for the stock mirror at only $69. Works and looks like the factory mirror.Darcy

Even though you found what you were looking for, you can always check the junkyard or a "U-Pull It" yard. Thats the good thing about having an older vehicle. And thanks for the website autopartswarehouse.com.

Am I right? Or is there still a simple way to do this? Anyone??? Please help. Any guidance on getting the door trim off would be appreciated as well.

You need to remove in steps to get to removing the panel, not hard, time consuming more. Get yourself
a panel fastener removal tool for the fasteners that hold the panel to the inner shell, you can pull hard and remove but with the tool makes it a little easier and less you will need to replace. Also, try to keep you hands clean often, some of the grease/dirt can transfer to the panels and be a real pain to get off and if you have throw away rubber gloves you can use them.... Hope this helps. Tools can be from Sears, Northern Tools, Harbor Frieght, ETC..... Let me know if we can help more....

Anyway, now I am considering just snipping the wire at the entry point into the door from the mirror, and splicing the wires together. It is not what I want to do, it is just becoming the convenient option. Any thoughts?
