I put 08 mirrors on my 01. When you get them, take the screws out of the nubbs coming out of the plastic, chop the nubbs off with a dremel, then sand them flush, screw the screws back in. When the nubbs are chopped there will still be a hole for the screew to be reinserted. In the center of the mount, it has a long plast wire holder, push the wires to the side and chop about 3/4 of that wire holder. If they are power, the wire coloring is different so luckily there are only 3 wires to hook up. So use prcess of elimination, hook 3 up and try moving the mirror, write down what colors you attach each time so you dont forget and after a couple of tries you will have it. Once you are done wiring one side the other side should be the same wiring so it will be easier than the first. Attach all wiring with butt connectors and wrap it in electric tape and you are good to go! Oh and here is a tip, when you are taking off the screws from your old mirrors, unscrew them til they are almost completely off, use a long magnet ( like the ones you use to pick up bolts/screws when dropped down into the engine compartment) and put the magnet head on the nut and turn it the rest of the way off then pull it out steady so it doesnt get caught by the door and falls inside because its a pain trying to find it then.

I bought new replacement power mirrors from partstrain. I felt like I got a train ran on me. Damn mirrors didnt work for shit. Up made it go left, right went up and down went left and left went up. They gave me my money back. If they did happen to work good they looked like shit. The plastic on the housing got messed up just from folding it in. I got new ones at keystone. They were good and actually worked right.
