2000 Focus SE Mirror Replacement

I recently purchased a driver's side mirror for my 2000 Focus SE to replace one damaged in a minor accident. Unfortunately and despite the assurances of the vendor, the replacement mirror did not include the fastener necessary for attaching the mirror to the door. I have contacted the vendor repeatedly (and received no answer), scoured the Internet and have also asked at auto parts stores, but no one seems to be able to tell me what size and type of fastener is necessary to install the mirror.

Does anyone know what size and type of bolt or screw is necessary to install the mirror?

Maybe I am reading it wrong or missing something , apologies if so ,but can you not use the fittings / screws/ bolt from existing mirror to fit replacement ?

Re: 2000 Focus SE Mirror Replacement

Oops, I guess I left that detail out of my original post. The original bolt/screw was broken, I assume in the accident. (Not quite sure how that happened) All that was left was the head and about a quarter inch of the shaft. I know the head is 10mm, but I have no idea what type of bolt/screw I need or its length.

Thanks for the reply.

I am almost sure that it is just a 10mm self tapping bolt which you should be able to pick up from a ironmonger store if not available from Ford parts dept. If you go to "www.myfordfocus.com/how-to/mirrors " that might help you , best of luck .

I used a 10mm socket. That's the only tool that will work. You have to go through a hole in the door to get to it. Be careful not to drop it in the door. Then you're screwed. No pun intended.
