Hi, I'm Mike from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and next time you need parts for your vehicle, think of 1AAuto.com. Thanks.

In this video, we're going to show you how to install upgrade mirrors on this 2015 Chevy Tahoe LT. We do this on the passenger side, but the driver's side is the same procedure.

You'll need new mirrors from 1AAuto.com, a small pick, flat blade screwdriver, 7mm and 10mm sockets with a ratchet and extension.

Using your small hooked pick or flat blade screwdriver, remove the trim panel inside the interior door handle. One 7mm screw under here, another trim panel inside of the actual door handle, here. Move that, two more 7mm screws as well as two at the very bottom of the panel down here. Use your 7mm socket wrench and an extension to remove the five 7mm bolts from the door panel. Pop out the bottom of the trim panel, lift up, release the tab on the door latch cable, pull back, release the cable from that hook, bring it around, remove the ball from the latch. Lift up on the red safety tab. Push down and lift the handle. Snap it all the way up. Remove the harness from the door. Using a small flat blade screwdriver, release the clips on the upper trim.

Unhook it and release the plastic clip on the trim under the mirror. Release the tab on the bottom of the electrical connector. Remove the mirror harness from the main door harness. Use your small flat blade screwdriver to carefully pry the plastic retainers for the harness out of the inner door. Using the 10mm socket and ratchet, remove the three nuts holding the mirror to the inside of the door. Support the mirror with your other hand over the top of the door. Remove the nut. Carefully lift out. Remove the mirror.

Install the electrical connector into the hole in the center of the door. You'll have to push in on the top of the mirror to make sure that the little plastic clips set into place. Start the nuts on the opposite side. Pull the rubber boot for the harness through. Make sure that sets into place. Tighten the mirror up with the 10mm socket and ratchet. Snap the harness retainers into place. Connect the mirror into the factory connector.

As you can see, these mirrors have a direct-fit, plug and play part that function just the same as your original equipment did, while using the same harness retention points and the same OEM electrical connector.

Reinstall the upper portion of the inner door panel trim. It has a snap here in the middle as well as the plastic clip at the bottom. Clip it over the inside of the metal door frame on the bottom, on this inner edge on the side as well. Reconnect the plastic clip at the bottom. You may have to lift out on the weather strip to make sure that it sits on the outside edge of the plastic.

Remove the weatherstrip from the top of the interior door panel. Using a small flat-blade screwdriver, push down on the tabs to release these metal clips. Repeat these steps to remove the remaining four metal clips.

Install the hooked part of the metal clip into these slots on the inner door panel. Reinstall the weather strip with this portion of the felt facing into the glass, and the slotted side is facing up. Reinstall the electrical connector for the interior door harness. Lower the latch. Click the red safety back into place. Insert the ball into the door latch. Pull out on the outer cable. Lock it into to place. Pop out the door lock. Insert it into the tab. Reinstall the upper portion of the door panel into the weather strip. Pop the rest of the clips in on the perimeter of the panel. Reinstall all five of your 7mm door panel bolts. Reinstall the plastic caps into their proper location, inside the door latch and the handle.
