How-To: SVT Side Mirror Installation
Items Needed:
1) Two SVT Side Mirrors (Will require painting) Part# FO1320314 (Left) & FO1321314 (Right)
2) Socket/Ratchet
3) Torx Screwdriver

Step 1:
Remove the plastic cover. Start by gently pulling/lifting the backside and then pull the cover off.

Step 2:
Using a Torx Screwdriver, remove the mounting screw.

Step 3:
Unplug the Mirror.

Step 4:
Remove the rubber grommet. This thing falls off really easy so be careful.

Step 5:
Use a socket/rachet and remove the second mounting bolt. You will need to remove the foam insullation for easier access.

Step 6:
Remove the old side mirror.

Step 7:
Feed the wires from the new mirror through the hole.

Step 8:
Reinstall the rubber grommet.

Step 9:
Reinstall the side mirror.

Step 10:
Install the painted mirror caps. "I had a clear film installed to protect the pain against rock chips."

Awesome post, Tom!

It should be noted that the screw is a Torx screw (at least mine is). I think it's a T15. Also the socket is a 10mm and the SVT doesn't reuse the Torx screw.

Awesome write up Tom. Now if your car doesnt heated mirrors like the svt does and u install the mirrors, does it work.

captcurt_18 05-10-2010 07:06 PM
