Pic 1: Use a flat bar on the bottom side of the large mirror and hit up with a hammer to release the tabs in Pic 2. It takes a pretty good hit but I don’t think you have anything to worry about breaking the glass if you have something that will displace the blow more use it. There are 3 electrical connections on the backside of the glass.

Pic 3: Remove the 4 T15 bolts retaining the electric motors. Be careful of the 2 plugs in the back.

Pic 4: Remove the retaining clip for the mirror extension.

Pic 5: Remove the 4 T15 bolts that hold the shims in place. Pull the mirror apart (Pic 6).

Pic 7: Remove the 5 T15 bolts that hold the lower mirror assembly. I had to use a swivel attachment to get to 2 of the bolts as the lower mirror was in the way. You can’t remove the mirror from the frame without breaking it.

Pic 8: I used flat screwdriver to push in and pry out this trim piece. It’s a lot easier for me to do on the side of the picture (straight edge) than on the other side (angled edge).

Pic 9: Remove the 4 bolts that hold on the slide arms. Some are Phillips like mine and others are Torx.

Pic 10: Slide the shims off the arms. Using a flat screwdriver, pry the trim pieces apart at the 3 tabs in Pic 11.

Pic 12: Remove the T15 bolt.

Pic 13: To remove the last trim piece, remove the 3 T10 (?) bolts.

Pic 14: All pieces and tools used minus the flat bar.


My mirror was broken in shipping – not during disassembly.

Cool,

Any idea if you can order the trim piece that's shown in picture 8?? Is there a part number on the back of that sucker?

I broke mine doing the mirror mod, and dealer told me that there is no part number for that cover, they said I would need to order a complete mirror.

I found at a salvage yard....lucky me !!

Awesome write up! This will be really handy for anyone that wants to install some running LEDs in their mirrors or try and remedy the shaking mirror issue.

I might consider adding some puddle LEDs to the underside of the mirror.

If you are able to locate that please let me know. I have one that is all scratched up and would love to replace it if I could.
