easy peasy mate. Pop the mirror out and the screws are right in front of you, youll require a torx screwdriver mind you, think there are 3 screws holding it on

That looks awsome mate!!! Just PM'd you with instructions on how to fit them not realising you'd already done it.

Not seen black with contrasting mirrors been done before but it looks immense... I think this will inspire more NHB owners!

I thought I saw your car down there. So I guess this is a "sub-spot" for the "Was it you" thread !!


Mayors Walk is in West Town

Sorry to thread jack , but is there anywhere you can buy black mirror caps ? or does everyone just get them painted or find them on ebay ?

Also how do you get the mirror off to access the screws ?

Bought mine direct from Gordons Honda down the road from me and went to pick them up. Think it was around 50 for the pair.

I found the original caps that came off were quite stubborn and needed some force to be removed. Was quite cautious at first but all they need is a bit of force and they'll come off.

Not sure which screws your on about but in order to change the caps you'll have to unscrew the 3 screws that are attaching the indicator to the cap. This will all be self explanatory once you've pulled off the old cap. Not sure what you mean about taking the mirror off.

Ok got you now , mis-read an earlier post !

Might be a dumb question but how do you pull the old cap off ?

cheers
