DIY – Installing the LED Indicator Side Mirrors

Step 1 – Remove the side mirror

Unclip the mirror gently by pulling at the bottom of the mirror. It should snap out once enough force is use. Don’t yank it too hard though.

Using a heatgun, warm the plastic that holds the mirror to the point that the mirror can be easily separated from the plastic.
