Guys..on those nuts in the wonderful places that GM put them in....can't see them...can't get a good angle...can't hardly feel them.

Secret weapon... go buy a set of ratcheting wrenches..if possible with the swivel ends.

Saved myself about 45 minutes of fighting to put my d/* mirror on....spent 45 minutes night before with regular wrench.

You mean you just plugged in the uninstalled motor, let it run freely, and it still quit on you?

Did you have both the local (Left Rear) and master (Driver'* Door) switch panels in place? I think they both have to be plugged into the wiring harness, because each one interlocks the other (so you can't have a situation where the driver is pressing the Down button while the left rear passenger is pressing the Up button, that kind of thing).

If so, maybe there'* a break in the wiring harness where it jumps the gap between door and pillar, either at the left rear door or (more likely) at the driver'* door. Might be interesting to keep trying the buttons while you slowly open and close each door, especially the driver'*.

Also, try wiggling the switch lever on both the panels; make sure that the one not being used is properly centered, or else it can interrupt the other switch for that window. Good luck.
