A flex head ratcheting wrench is what the Dr. ordered.
Thing is the angle of the studs with with the nuts on them isn't what you would expect. This couples with the angle of the door panel and your range of motion behind the window regulator makes it a tough one handed job.
Add a flex head and have angling on your side...the mirror is a 2 minute job once the door panel is off.
Thanks for all the help- looks like I have a little fun time coming up (LOL)
Was REALLY hoping for the LAZY MAN'* way out- like a hidden hex screw etc on the outside- no such luck- Oh Well!!!!
