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.
