2016 tow mirror cap swap

Recommended Posts

Has anybody changed thier black tow mirror caps to the chrome? I ordered / recieved the chrome caps from the dealer but I have no idea how to change them as there are no directions.

There are a few videos on youtube. You basically have to take the entire mirror apart to get to the clips for the mirror caps. Its a lot more work then the regular GM mirrors.

Where did you order these? I have chrome caps on my '16 Tow mirrors on my 2500 and desperately want white!

So with the new black tow mirrors on say a 2016 you have to take the mirror off the door or no..?

 

Some of the fords you just get behind it with a thin flat head and pop up the clip and pull them off.

 

So your saying you have to disassemble the mirror .? .? I can't find a video that shows.

I am curious how the caps come on/off too.

I pulled my caps off of my 2016 yesterday to paint them.

 

Pull the bottom smaller mirror piece out (takes some force and you feel as though you're breaking it).

Then push the bigger glass piece upwards until you hear a click, and slides out.

 

There are four screws in each corner ( I think it was a T-15).

Then one more screw in the center of the frame holding the black frame on there.

Lastly there are 4 more screws tucked into the circular piece that the bigger mirror clipped into. Remove all four of those as well.

 

Once all that is done, the mirror caps are held on just by a few little clips that easily pop out.

I found taking big mirror out first then the lower one as you could help pop the tabs for the little mirror so they don't break

I would be interested in buying them if you're willing to sell them?
