Hey friends, it's Len here at 1A Auto. Today I'm working on a 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser and I want to show you how to remove the right front mirror marker lens. It's going to be super easy. I can do it. You can do it, too. If you need any parts, you can always check us out 1AAuto.Com. Thanks.

Okay, so here we go. Safety first, okay? This is very basic, but you always want to be safe. You want to wear eye protection, hand protection, okay? This right here is glass, so you want to be super careful. I like to use something like painter's tape or pretty much any kind of tape will actually work. Painter's tape's great because it comes off very easily, but what this is going to do is when we're pulling on the glass or the mirror, if God forbid something ends up breaking or cracking or chipping, hopefully this is going to protect it or protect us from the pieces coming off and potentially hurting us, okay? This is super important. You want to make sure that you're safe, all right?

Next, what we're going to do, we're just going to grab our glass, tilt it up, grab from the bottom, pull it out like that, and then it slides right out. What happens is, is you've got this right here, this right here, those hold onto that. Right up here, there should be a little hooky doos that go underneath here. This one's actually missing them apparently, but it also has the little clips that go along the sides right here into there. It's got pretty much everything except for the little hooky doos.

Okay, so now we've got some screws. We're going to go one right here, one right up here, and one right inside there. We'll take those out first. This is what the screw looks like. The other one's going to come out in a minute. Gettin' that to separate. Here we are. There's a little tab right here. You just squeeze on that, lift it right up. Here's our other screws, still kind of in there. I'll just pop them out. Actually, I'll leave them in. That'll make it easier to get them back together. We'll set this aside and move ahead to the next step.

Okay, so the next thing we're going to do, let's get our bulb out of the way. Now's a great time to check it. You can see the filament in there. It still looks good. This is a 194NA, which just means that it's the amber bulb, 194. We'll set that aside. We've got another Phillips head screw right here. We'll set that aside. Right along here, there's a little a clip. It's the same color as this. You just push it off to the side while lifting out on the motor. Just like that. That one. That just gives us a little bit of slack right up here. Now I'm going to grab onto this lens. Okay, so that gets us pretty close, but we need to go a little bit further. All right. There's another screw right back here. It looks the same as all the rest. Set it aside. Here we go. Okay, so should be able ... It's got one more screw here. That should be all of them. Got one right here. Let's see if that'll make a difference. Oh yeah. That makes a big difference. Just take that out as far as we need to to be able to get this out. Here's our marker lens on the right front mirror.

Okay, now it's time to get this re-installed. I'm just going to go in pretty much the same way as we came out. In like this, set it into where it wanted to be. It was there for a long time. It's happy there. Okay, sits right up along the top wall up here, not this bottom one. Right up there. Then this right here is going to go right there, okay?

Let's grab some screws. I'm going to tighten this one up. We've got this one, this one, we'll get this one in. We're just screwing into plastic here so we don't need to go too tight. I'm going to take this, I'm going to put this in now while it's easy to get to. It clicks in. Okay, we're going to leave this one out for now and this one out for now because that's where the the front plate screws into. Here, here. Got our assembly. Just slide it over. Here we are. Hole, hole, hole. I'm just going to start them in. Once they're all started, that'll be when I go ahead and tighten them down. Okay, all three, go ahead and snug them up. Here we are. That cracking sound was actually just the sound of the click locking in right here. Okay, that feels good.

Grab our safety glasses again. All right, so now to install the glass, what you'd want to do, if your glass itself has the little hooky doos right here, there should be two of them, if yours does have that, you need to put the top in first, which I'm going to do anyway, just like that. Essentially, the hooks are going to go inside here and then once they're inside where they're happy, I'm just going to ... This would be easier if it did have the hooks. Just go ahead and push the glass. Cool. Here we are. Go ahead and remove this tape. Let's see. Bring that over. Off we go.
