  • 10mm deep socket
  • Flathead screwdriver (for power mirrors)


Step 1

Then remove the foam chunk from behind the trim piece.

Step 2

Remove 3 nuts. Using the 10mm deep socket, remove the nuts – normal threading.

Step 3

Disconnect wiring harness (if applicable). Power mirrors have a simple wiring harness. Use the flathead screwdriver to press the tab & disconnect the harness.

Step 4

Remove mirror. The 3 bolts should slide right out.  If the mirror has a manual control or wiring harness, guide it out carefully as well.


Installation is the reverse of removal.
