How do you go about getting the wires for the power mirror reconnected in the door panel?

I must be missing something - Bambi tore off my passenger side power mirror and Fiero Factory sent me a replacement. When I removed the broken mirror housing from the outside door panel, the wires to the mirror were connected to the wires from the door by a simple black plastic, male/female connector. I had to "fish" it out to where I could get to it, but there was enough slack that it was not a big deal.

If you pull back the carpet just forward of the door inside (drivers side or passenger side, whichever side you're working on), there is a little rubber square that's stuck onto the side... almost like Dynamat. This pulls back exposing a large hole which you can fit your fingers in. This will give you access to be able to fish the wire into the inside of the rubber boot, and then back into the door. You'll want to remove the door panel to properly fish the wire. Make sure you try to work it with the window down, that way you can be sure you don't accidentally put it through an area where it'll get caught by the window.

. Mine doesn't seem to have any slack in the wiring but I'll try again. Thanks
Okay, the wiring that is attached to the mirror has a clip together connection inside the door, when I replaced the mirror I separated the connection here (mistake) I should have separated it inside the car and connected a wire and pulled the whole thing through the door, reconnected the new wiring and pulled it back into the inside of the car , but I didn't, so I pulled the wire inside the door, into the inside of the car,released it from the connector inside the car then threaded a piece of weedeater line from inside the car,through the rubber between the door and car body then duct taped the wiring to the weed eater line and pulled it back into the car and hooked it back up, now all is well.
