Greetings all! First post here, must say I love the forum, very nice and helpful!
2009 Dodge Journey SXT 6cyl, front wd, with heated power mirror, no modifications.
I need to replace my wife's driver side rear view mirror due to a deer and am having trouble removing the driver door panel. I did search the forum but did not find a thread specific to the Journey.
I recently purchased the 5,684 Dodge manual in pdf but any work that needs to be done in regards to removing the door panel says "See Body/Door - Front/Panel, Door Trim - Removal"
and for the molding it says "See Body/Door - Front/MOLDING - Removal"
. I cannot locate any of these sections in the manual.
From searching the web and reading these forums, I found a screw under the recess on the armrest, one behind the door handle, and have popped out the door control (did not see a screw to remove under the controls). and have tried lifting up to no avail obviously (see photo).
I cannot for the life of me see where the panel is attached towards the bottom. I did pry the panel away from the door at the bottom and did see where white clips are, but cannot figure how to correctly remove the clips as it looks like they should be removed from the front.
I also see where there may be screws for getting access to the mirror but the fasteners are flat and I don't want to just muscle them off (see below). Does anyone know how I can remove these?
The mirror isn't scheduled to come until Wed, but I would like to get a jump on figuring out how to remove the panels to gain access to the mirror.
Happy New Year and thank you for any assistance you are able to offer!
