  1. I used a big shiny screwdriver with a thin piece of foam over it .. u can see where the clips are based on the replacements, I just slid over to those two spots on top and on bottom... pop popx2 ... no nicks or scratches .. no flashlight I was quite pleased that it didnt take much effort as I was worried about fudging something up but all clips are intact I may try the mirrors myself but I dont really do any highway driving right now which is what theyre most helpful for I think ..
  2. Why such a PITA? I just swapped out my dad's aspherical glass (he couldnt get used to it) on both sides the other day and it only took a few mins to pop em out and pop the originals back in . .
