usually the mirror is fairly easy to replace, on the inside if the car is a trim panel, on the inside of where the mirror is located. Its usually held on with a screw hidden behind a little cover you have to prise out, once the screw is out the trim will come off, revealing some more screws, occasionally these are the star allen key (torx) type, if you have electric mirrors, the connecting plug is usually located either behind the trim you have just taken off, or just below it behind the door card, if its electric, undo the connector before undoing the screws, then once the last screw is nearly out, hold the mirror on the outside of the car, to stop it falling to the ground. Refitting is reversal of removal, but its wise to check the mirror is working before replacing all the trim.

Ever noticed that putting "anal" in front of some ford model names makes them sound funny? Fiesta, Probe, Ranger. Explorer, Maverick etc... lol

i believe so on some models. once you're old one is off, have a go at that one, then if not possible just rub a key on it with some sandpaper and give it a couple of coats of colour matched silver.

In a related question...

I'm just about to replace my Drivers side door mirror. Is it possible to fit a Power Folding mirror unit in place of a non power fold unit.

Do they auto fold or is there an additional switch required?

Best to ask on the smax owners forum website.
