When looking for a DIY procedure for this mod I didn't find much out there, not overly difficult or complicated, hope this help! These were purchased from http://urotuning.com.

Tools Required
  • 3/8" Ratchet
  • 3/8" Extension
  • T8 Torx
  • T20 Torx
  • 3mm Allen Key - (Long)
  • Plastic Pry Tool
  • Straight Pick
  • 90 deg. Pick
Shown in this DIY is the passenger side mirror, first with the electric mirror switch move the right mirror to it most downward position.The most difficult part is removing the mirror itself. Seem the easiest way to start its release is to work the pry tool from the narrowest part of the mirror then towards the centre.

With the mirror removed use the pry tool under the heated mirror connectors to pry the wires off.

Set the mirror aside, using the 3mm Allen Key remove the retainer screw shown in the photo

Grab the mirror assembly and turn to the right as far as it will go. Shown in the first photo is the locking tab in it locked position

Apply a little more pressure while turning it towards the right until you feel it move slightly (unllocked)

Using the 6" extension and the T20 Torx bit remove the three screw holding the motor assembly seen in the photo.

Turn the mirror assembly to the left back to its original position and lift the mirror assembly off the support post. Remove the last T20 screw that hold the motor assembly.

Wiggle the motor assembly out of the mirror cover, disconnect the motor electrical connector using the straight pick to pry the retainer clips.

Using the angle pick pry the connector tab upperward to release the turn signal connector. With all of the wires disconnected the wires can be pulled thru the motor assembly post.

The motor assembly and the mirror cover can now be lifted off the car and seperated

Using the 6" extension and the T8 Torx remove the 6 screws holdong the turn signal light in place and remove the turn signal light assembly

Install the sequential turn signal and secure with the 6 screws. Follow the disassembly priocedure in reverse to install the mirror assembly back onto the care.
