Mirror Replacement

Caution: Safety glasses and sturdy gloves are highly recommended for the following steps.
1. Place the mirror housing on a clean level surface. Push on the outer edge of the mirror to manually pivot it fully
outward so a small pry bar can be inserted under its inner edge. Apply gentle pressure with the pry bar until the
mirror backing plate begins to unsnap from the motor. Move the pry bar around the mirror and pry again until
the mirror backing plate further unsnaps from the motor. Pull the mirror off of the motor. Some force may be
required to free any remaining snaps but it should not be excessive. If you can not remove the mirror without
excessive force, apply the pry bar further around its edge to loosen more snaps. Then try again. If you have
heated mirrors, disconnect the wires when you remove the mirror. The polarity for the heaters is reversible so it
is not necessary to label the wires.

2. Pull back the rubber insulation on the mirror mounting frame to expose the wire routing passage. Locate the correct Signal® mirror
harness (short for driver side and long for passenger side) and slide the end with no connector through the routing passage (from the
inside of the mirror housing) and through the hole in the rubber insulation. Leave about 6 inches of slack in the harness near the
motor pack.
3. Connect the Signal® mirror leads to the harness (3A). If you have heated mirrors, connect the wires to the heater terminals at this
time (3B). Place and align the Signal® mirror motor mount over the motor puck. Place the palm of your hand on the center of the
glass and press firmly until you hear the snaps engage onto the motor puck. Press on the top, bottom and both sides of the mirror to
ensure complete attachment to the motor puck. (Mirror should be pivoted through its full range of travel during this step.)

SIDE TURN. PASSENGER SIDE: Probe the Dark Blue wire to verify that
flashing turn indicator power is present. Deactivate the turn indicator and
depress the brake to make sure you have not located the rear turn wire. Label
that wire as front, PASSENGER SIDE TURN.
NOTE: Triple check to ensure you have the correct indicator wire, as there
are several of them to choose from.
