Step 2: Using the flathead screwdriver, gently pry and remove the small trim panel that covers the mirror's mounting area.
Step 3: Using the 10mm wrench, remove the 3 mounting bolts that hold the mirror to the door frame.
Step 4: By depressing the tabs on the mirror lever, you can push the handle through the opening in the door frame, allowing for complete removal.
NOTE: Be sure to hold onto the mirror while pushing the tabs, as you don't want broken glass on your garage floor or driveway.
Step 5: Feed the lever for the new mirror through the door frame opening, and mount the mirror to the door by tightening the three 10mm mounting bolts.
Step 6: Covert the mounting area, by reattaching the small trim panel.
