      Gonna tint these and I just want to make sure I have the correct info on how to remove them. Alls I need to do is pop the actual mirror out with something plastic (so as not to chip it) and then from there I should be able to pop out the turn signals correct?

      Um, Personally I don't know if that's all that is needed but it wouldn't hurt to check the DIY sticky if you haven't already

      Need to remove the mirror motor also to get to the 4 or 5 torx screws, no more than 10 minutes a side.

      glad you posted. if you did that, you'd likely break your whole mirror assembly - there are a bunch of torx screws holding everything together.

      read that, its a good guide.

      Yea seriously. Thanks a lot guys. Thisll be a big help. And no thanks as far as buying the smoked signals. Ill just tint them myself. That's what I did with my side markers and they turned out great.
