9. Disconnect the door handle connection wire, and take the time to detach the other 3 connecting wires. The wires have safety releases. Take a small flathead screwdriver and pull down the red tab, and the connections will pinch and pull out.

16. Before installing the new Clearview Next Gen Towing Mirror, make sure the rubber gasket is positioned correctly on the mirror bracket.

TECH TIP: After installation, if you experience excessive whistling or vibration while driving at higher speeds, it usually means you have a gap in your mirror gasket, and is misseated and will need adjustment.

17. Position the towing mirror on the door, guiding connection wiring through opening, and lining up the bolts with the bolt holes.

18. Hand-tighten the nuts to the three bolts to hold the mirror. Secure the bolts with a rachet, applying a few turns to each in a equal pattern.

19. Plug in the connector that pertains to your vehicle model. The mirror is now installed. Test the mirror for operation. There will be an extra connector that you will NOT use — just tuck it away when replacing the door panel.

20. Replace top door trim. The lower edge of the trim fits up under the metal piece of the door frame. It should fit nicely around top weatherstripping. Then attach the push pins on either end.
