DIY, change the glass of the side mirror on your VW Jetta, the model manufactured between the years 1999 and 2005. This is a very simple replacement, that will not require tools, just a new glass for the damaged mirror on your car and no more than a couple of minutes.
You will start the repair by removing the old glass. Now, you should be able to pry out the mirror with your fingers, as you can see in the image below, but in most of the cases the glass is broken, so you could use hand gloves or a screwdriver for protection.
After you release the glass, you will notice the heating wires behind it, as seen in next picture. You can unplug them very simply by hand, one by one.
Now it is the moment to install the new mirror. Plug the electrical wires to the new glass, align it on the plastic support on the mirror and secure it, by pressing it with your both hand. This is all you need to do, if you plan to remove and change by yourself the glass of the side mirror on VW Jetta, the model made between the years 1999 and 2005. In the video tutorial below you can see details about the replacement procedure.
