Frequently Asked Questions
Why did the side mirrors on a Buick LeSabre turn dark and foggy?
There's actually an electrically charged liquid behind the LeSabre side mirror's glass that allows it to dim and heat up during winter. However, this liquid turns into a rusty or dark color that causes blurriness and visibility problems. Replacing these can be done without removing the entire side mirror assembly or even the old mirror. Just purchase non-dimming mirrors and fix them over the old ones with silicone glue.
Why does the LeSabre rear view mirror move up and down?
Some LeSabre models like those from 1997 or 98 have rear-view mirrors that can be separated from a base that's glued to the windshield. The mirror gets loose when it goes beyond a lock-point, so it easily jumps up and down. If this happens, simply push the mirror on up on to the base to remove it. Then reattach it to the LeSabre's windshield with a downward push.
Why is it beneficial to change a Buick LeSabre's manual side mirror into a power mirror?
Power mirrors make it easy for the driver to adjust the passenger's side mirror without dirtying it up. All he has to do is to press a few buttons while sitting in his seat. From the 2002 LeSabres until the last 2005 model, Buick has given its last generation buyers the option to choose between getting a manual or a power side mirror. A LeSabre owner who wants to upgrade his manual mirrors can do so quite easily regardless of its trim level. This is because Buick manufactured the LeSabres to have the same internal wiring for both kinds of side mirrors. He simply has to install a new mirror with accompanying motor and plug them into the harnesses inside the panel.
