Replacing passenger side mirror
If you are replacing the entire mirror assembly you have to remove the door panel.
First remove the switch plate by prying upward at the rear of the switch plate and unhook the connectors. Then remove the two armrest screws. The door panel then has to be pryed away from the door to release the clips. They don't give up easily so yo may have to force it a bit. Once the clips are loose pull up on the panel to remove it from the window reveal molding. The mirror is held on with three 10mm nuts. remove those and unhook the wiring from in the door. Install is reverse of removal.

I have a pontiac grand prix 2002 when I accelerate above 40mph there is a vibration. When I remove foot from gas the vibration stops.
a problem axle will vibrate worse the faster you go but the vibration will be there up or down so for the moment I will set that aside.
if it is vibrating during acceleration but stops when the accelerator is released, it indicates and engine /transmission management problem
first I would run the fault codes as the problem could be from a faulty cam position sensor
servo/solenoid that has the cam too far advanced for the engine rpms and power setting
next it could be a problem with injector control or fuel flow/ pressure
have the fuel pressure tested at rpms to ensure that the pressure regulator is operational
what you describe occurs from misfiring or the like so go to an accredited service center for a proper diagnosis and quote
back to the axle --it could be a problem wheel bearing failing or needing adjustment so keep that in the back of your mind if nothing shows up in the fault codes or diagnosis from a shop with experience
