  1. `While taking off my car cover today, I slipped and snapped of the side view mirror off of the base. This is a universal Buick side view mirror that fits a 56 not NOS. I am ordering a replacement now. Can anyone tell me if I will have to take off my door panels to properly install the side view mirror? Thanks
