you will have to pull the back skin off the mirror to get to the light

To remove the back skin, adjust the mirror all the way in...towards the door window. Take a flashlight and look between the mirror glass and the inside of the back skin...you'll see the tabs I'm talking about. I would suggest using a headlamp on a band around your head...that way both hands are free. Insert a flathead screw driver and CAREFULLY pry up on the latch head...pry up too far and you'll break that tab right off. Once you get the first one to unlatch, move to the next one and repeat the process until they're all unlatched. Then simply pull the skin off from the outside of the mirror. you'll need to disconnect the small wiring harness to complete the removal.

To reinstall, simply line everything back up and snap the back into place.

you will have to replace the whole light (most likely) if you do and want to stay with factory that is cool but if your truck would look good with some smoked lenses the ones from recon are really nice and are only about 80 or 90 for the pair....... once you have the black peice that mike is talking about off you'll see what ya have to do.. his description is detailed and will help ya a lot

I pulled the mirror out and back in. Like the telescopic way it goes in and out and the thing started working. Crazy

Had it in my shop today putting the dual steering stabilizers on and since the shop was heated i ended up taking the skin off the mirror. The light was not plugged up. Its all good now. Thanks guys.
