Step 1 - Pop the mirror off by tilting it all the way up from the electronic controls and use a plastic trim tool to pry off.

Step 2 - Locate the 4 screws shown here to remove black gloss shroud from mirror.



Step 3 - Remove an additional two screw that attach mirror cover to lighting strip.





Step 4 - Pull mirror cover away from vehicle the only tabs still holding it on are the 3 at the bottom of the mirror cover that I broke when pulling off.





Step 5 - Attach lighting strip to new Carbon Fiber mirror cover with screws. Re attach mirror cover to mirror assembly ensuring all clips engage. Re attach mirror connections and electronics.

Outstanding instructions! I performed this mod on Sunday and I would never have attempted it without your guide! Thank you for blazing the trail. I was planning to have the dealership do the work... so your efforts saved me at least $100 or more. Thank you! Knowing what I know now, the only thing I would have done differently is wrap painters tape on the mirror edges after popping out the glass...Got a few small scratches to buff out from the rubbing of the mirror on the inner housing during reassembly. Otherwise, amazing outcome all around!!
