Step 8: Disconnect the side mirror's wiring harness.
Step 9: Loosen and remove the 10mm mounting bolts (3) that secure the side mirror to the vehicle.
NOTE: Be sure to hold onto the side mirror while removing the 10mm bolts, as you don't want to sweep broken glass from your garage floor or driveway!
Step 10: You can now remove the side mirror.
Step 11: Feed the wiring through the opening in the door frame, and mount the mirror by tightening the 10mm mounting bolts (3). Cover the bolts with the covers (3).
