i just popped mine off with a flat head screw driver, but others have taken them to pieses first, incase of any clips breaking. but it takes bloody ages and is a pain in the @ss.

screw driver in the gap on the front of the mirror inbetween the indicator and mirror, took about 15 mins to swap both sides.  :smiley:

Where is the best/cheapest place to get new caps as I fancy a set of gloss black ones.

I'd follow the guide, it's not a biggy.

The glass pops out if you get in behind it, and apply some force, then just strip it out from there.

Done, Really easy job only took me 5 mins a side and that was with removing the glass and heater connectors as per the guide.
