Step 1: Remove the battery cover, and disengage the negative battery cable using the 10mm socket/ratchet.
Step 2: Open the vehicle's door.

Step 4: Loosen and remove the T30 Torx screws (2) exposed by removing the door pull.
Step 5: Using the door panel clip tool (or putty knife), pry and remove the interior door panel.
There is a series of retaining clips that hold the panel to the door frame. You will hear them "pop" as they disengage.
Step 6: You can now lift and remove the interior door panel.
Step 7: Disconnect the door latch cable and the wiring harnesses (3) from the back of the interior door panel.
Step 8: Pry and remove the trim panel that covers the trim panel that covers the side mirror's mounting point.
Step 9: Loosen and remove the T30 Torx screws (3) that secure the mirror to the vehicle.
NOTE: Be sure to hold onto the mirror while removing these screws, as you don't want to sweep broken glass from your garage floor or driveway!
Step 10: Disconnect the mirror's wiring harness.
Step 11: Mount the new side mirror by tightening the T30 Torx screws (3).
Step 12: Connect the side mirror's wiring harness.
Step 13: Reattach the small trim panel that covers the mirror's mounting area.

Simply reverse the removal process. Be sure to reconnect all wiring harnesses, tighten the T30 screws (2), and reattach any trim panels we removed!
