Anyone know how to go about removing the door panel on a 2500M? I just purchased some new side mirrors and would like to install them on my '73.

Thanks,
Steve

There are about 8 snap-in pins to pop out. Best to use a panel remover to span on either side of the pin before prying, but I've used a putty knife to get up next to the pin before prying. There are some small photos in the technical library section (https://tvr.m-fix.co.uk/doorpanels.htm) of the m-fix (https://tvr.m-fix.co.uk/) site that will give you some idea of where they are located.

Thanks Jim. Looks like just removing the door panels won't gain me access to the inside of the outer door up where the mirrors are mounted. I need to get two bolts through the holes from the inside of the door. They each thread into the base of the mirror. Do I have to remove the window frame assembly to gain access to this area? Hope not.

On my '74 2500M (3275TM), I believe that the two bolts into the driver's side mirror were visible when the door was opened. I no longer own that car, but I have a photo of the door with the mirror removed. I see the holes way up high in the location where they would be exposed, and I know that I never removed the window frame to remove the mirror. I can imagine that yours could be different due to it being handbuilt or modified over the years.

Thanks. I'll try to post a photo of mine.
