Can you write out what color wire goes to what. I've read that it's not color matched for the swap and different colors go to each other on the swap. Much appreciated.

Do you know what colors matched up to what wires? I've been looking around online for an hour trying to find a link and keep running in circles...

For the last 2 nuts you have to peel back the grey sticky stuff to see them.


Before you remove the mirror it's a good idea to have someone holding it on the other side. Now you can unplug the mirror plug which is behind the grey sticky stuff. It may take a little force to remove the old mirror due to the seal being there for a while.


Now the new plug will not fit the old plug inside the door. So I went and cut the plug end off the old mirror and spliced it into the new mirror.


Before you install the new mirror you will have to cut a little plastic tab off. I used a Dremel tool and it came off very easily.




There is one too many wires on old plug and two yellow ones. So I found the one that works and went from there.


Now after everything is spliced together just reverse the steps and its all done. Took me about a hour just going at a slow pace.

I love these new mirrors. They look great and much more functional.

Don't forget to check Amazon for prices. I found the lowest prices there for the manual model 08 mirrors for my 02. I found I never adjusted them and didn't care if I have power anything. I used a Dremel to trim the tab on mine too.
