Hello,

I tried installing a dimmable mirror (H501SSG000) and when I was on step 2 of the installation guide ("Twist mirror base cover and pull cover away from windshield"), I had to stop: I was twisting the mirror base many times form left>right and right>left, up/down, you name it!, and the darn thing was really stuck, didn't budge a millimeter...:furious:

Oh well, there goes the weekend project.... I do remember there was a thread with installation pics, but I don't remember where that is.
Is there any magical trick to remove the mirror base?

Thanks!

I recently installed the auto dimming mirror P/N H501SFG200 on my 2013 2.5X, I think it's basically the same set-up. In step 2 after you rotate the mirror 90 degrees you will be sliding it down towards the dash, you need to slide it off the mount as opposed to just pulling it away from the mount, it is a nice tight fit. My biggest problem was getting the wires tucked neatly under the trim piece. The mirror works great, quick response and just the right amount of dimming.
