FYI mirror pod replacement diy

Things to be aware of
The car will be awake with the doors open and this can drain the battery .
You may need to recharge it after if you don't dissconnect it.
The drivers side door switch pod has a lever which you throw to get it out .
You must be sure to have it all the way reseated before you throw the lever its
a good idea to test the switch before you put the panel back in .

Since I installed and aftermarket stereo kit I have some experience with the door panel stuff .
You will probably need some spare plastic door panel fastners and they are cheap.
Take picture of the trim on each door before you take it apart so you don't drive yourself
nuts wondering if its aligned right.
