    I have a 2001 silverado 1500 LS and pulled the driver sidemirror in so that I could get it through a narrow gate. As I pulled it in I hearda loud pop and a metallic ping. :grrrrrr: After that I was able to lift the whole mirror assemblyup and off the bracket that attaches to the door. I can see a spring and whatlooks to be some sort of snap washer that would be pushed down onto a notchedpeg to keep the spring compressed. Is there any way to remove the glass withoutdamaging it and then go back and reinstall it after hopefully fixing the hinge?
    any ideas?

    Yes! Here is a link with detailed info on how to remove the glass. scroll all the way down the page. http://www.justanswer.com/chevy/2n28k-2001-chevy-silverado-dirver-s-side-mirror.html There is a diagram also. GM sells a kit for $85. You can get it on gmpartsclub.com for less. Alternatively, you could probably buy 2 of these http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/BATTALION-Hook-Bolt-4PB83?Pid=search , you may need a different length and one of these http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/CHICAGO-HARDWARE-U-Bolt-4P818?Pid=search . Is the metal cross piece from the u-bolt and make it work.
