    did a search couldnt find anything.

    so a couple weeks ago i hit my passenger side mirror. i finally got the OEM replacement in but i have no idea how to go about putting it on. there is the big black triangle and three screws coming out, but i dont know how to take it off the truck, and how i secure it when im putting it on.

    any help?

    to take off the triangle just pull on it. there are three clips that old it in place.

    should be able to access the mirror bolts after you get the triangle off.

    it's been a while since i pulled mine so i don't remember where i started. i wouldn't worry to much about breaking them. just pull gently until it pops.

    You can use a small flat head screwdriver. Wrap the tip in a bit of masking tape so if it slips it wont scratch anything.

    Gently pry the black triangle using the screwdriver...and I mean GENTLY!!!.

    Once the triangle is off you'll see the wire harness for the power mirror (if you have power mirrors), unplug it.

    Using a magnetic tip, you'll have to unbolt three bolts (10mm I think). If you drop the bolt in the space you'll have to take off the door upholstery any fish it out so be careful to not drop the bolt.

    The mirror will slide out after that.

    Installation is the reverse process.

    I hope this helps.

    I know this is an old thread but I just swapped my mirrors and thought I'd share for future use.
