Okay, attempted to install the Recon smoked side mirror lenses this evening...here is how it went..
Got the OE lenses out with no problems. Got the bulbs out and connected the Recon lenses..so far so good. At this point I attempted to get the Recon lenses back into the mirror..this is where the problems began.
On the OE lenses the bulbs fit into the back of the lenses, this allows room for lense to fit back into the mirror. Once you plug the the LED connectors from the Recon lenses into the bulb holders from the OE lenses there is no room inside the mirror for everything to fit and allow the Recon lense to slide back in properly...I messed with it for about 30 minutes and could not get them to fit without it feeling like the little plastic clips are going to break off...aside from that the connectors are not super tight. At this point I put the OE lenses back in and headed to Checker for a can of Night Shades and some clear coat.
I hope the Night Shades works out better than the Recon lenses...they are getting sent back.
It is very possible, in fact it's highly likely, that I am a complete idiot and am doing something wrong?? If anyone has any ideas or pointers that may help me I would really appreciate it....
