Installation Instructions:


1: Park car on level ground in safe area and open window on door that needs the replacement mirror.


2: Open hood and remove negative battery terminal from the battery using 8mm open end wrench.


3: Locate the small interior panel that is adjacent to the exterior mirror (Small panel with power mirror switch). Use Large Flat Screwdriver or equivalent tool to remove this interior panel. (Caution: If Left Hand mirror, once clips holding panel give way, it will still be attached by wire to switch.)


4: Carefully separate the wire harness clip from the switch and completely remove the panel and place it in a safe location.


5: Disconnect the wire harness clip carefully from the mirror. Be sure to remember which clip goes to the switch and mirror.


6: Remove the three nuts from the studs on the mirror with 11mm Open End Wrench while making sure to hold mirror from falling off of car. We will reuse these nuts so try your best not to damage and make sure to put in a safe place.


7: Get out the new mirror and inspect for any defects. This is also a good time to clean up the exterior of the door from any dirty buildup to ensure proper seating of the new mirror.


8: Line up stud on mirror with the holes in the vehicle and replace with the nuts taken off before.


9: Reconnect all wiring harness clips in opposite order as before and clip the interior panel back into place, being careful not to pinch any wires


10: Reconnect battery and check for proper operation. Enjoy your new mirror.
