Step 4: Pry and remove the small retaining pin near the latch of the interior door panel.
Step 5: Using the door panel clip tool (or putty knife), pry and remove the interior door panel.
A series of retaining clips holds the door panel to the vehicle. You will hear these clips "pop" as they disengage.
Step 6: You can now lift and remove the interior door panel. Disconnect the door handle cable from the back of the panel.

You only need to peel back the water shield enough to expose the mirror's wiring harness connection.
Step 8: Disconnect the side mirror's wiring harness.
Step 9: Loosen and remove the 10mm mounting bolts (3) that secure the mirror to the vehicle.
NOTE: Be sure to hold onto the mirror while removing these 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: Mount the new side mirror by tightening the 10mm mounting bolts (3).
Step 12: Connect the mirror's wiring harness.
Step 13: Reattach the interior door panel.
Simply reverse the removal process. Be sure to re-engage the retaining clips and tighten the T30 screws!
