Thank you for any help, and I apologize if this has already been answered.
My wife broke one mirror so I learned how - sort of. First, you will have to carefully remove the painted cover. You may have to carefully pull the mirror glass away from the mirror assembly. Make sure you turn the glass inward first so you can see. Anyway, you should now be able to see the turn signal and puddle bulbs. Have at it. Like I said, hers was broken so I was able to see the bulbs. As I recall, there were new bulbs with the new mirror assembly.

6769MOPARS You're going to have to remove the mirror cover and then the lens cover to get at the turn signal bulbs.

STL 314 Puddle lamp install is very simple. Please post if you find out how to replace the mirror turn signals
