been meaning to get this together for a while now, so here it is...
Order a standard set of Tow Mirrors from a local store http://www.findapart.ca/
and got the basic features, power tilt, heat, led turn signals, and puddle light. I didn't get the power fold/telescoping options as they aren't going to impact day-day use.
Time to install 20 Mins for both sides.
So The tools I used..
2 picks, to remove covers for screws in the doors
3 sockets, 6mm 8mm and 11mm
I used a socket driver on a drill but it is not nessicary, you can use a ratchet.
Remove covers in the door pull and behind hinge with the picks.
then use the 8mm socket to remove the screws in those 2 places.
Use the 6mm to remove the two screws on the bottom of the door panel
Lift and pull the door out, left mine attached to the wiring as it was going back on after changing the mirror out
remove the wiring harness and Use the 11mm socket to remove the 3 nuts holding the mirror assembly in place
Installation is the opposite order!
Now on mine, since I didn't like the look of all black on the mirror, I masked the top part, sanded the texture off with burgandy scotch brite. Takes a while to get it just right. Count on 30 mins per side
Washed with soap and water. Let dry.
Sprayed with Adhesion Promoter. Let dry
Painted it with 3 coats of Base, and 4 coats of clear coat to match my truck.
