Hi Guys!
I have a 2017 guilia and have to replace the mirror system, the whole thing but am not sure how to get to it through the door. Anyone know? do I have to remove the whole door panel?

The dealer sold me the part but was charging $500 for the attachment, on older models it is a simple process but seems way more complicated on the newer--hoping someone knows. if all else fails, will go to technician.

On today’s cars there’s often a reason such a “simple” job is expensive. Also, consider that everything inside (and related) to that door will be open for warranty denial of coverage. One small mistake in assembly that allows water in and shorts out something will wash all your “savings” away. There’s a reason to pay the dealer during the warranty period, and it isn’t charity.

You do need to remove the door card, but $500 labor seems entirely excessive, since it takes less than a hour.
To a skilled tech it takes an hour. To everyone else Murphy's Law comes into play.
