Heated side mirrors are a great aftermarket addition to any vehicle. Installing heated side mirrors will prevent fogging, which will increase visibility. Heated side mirrors can be installed rather easily and by novices in an afternoon. The article that follows will show you how.

Step 1 – Locate the Relay Box

Open the hood to the vehicle and locate a black box. Open the box to find several relays. The box will be marked with which relay is for what service. Locate the relay for the mirrors and remove it. Replace it with the relay that came with the mirror kit. Connect the wires as needed and close the box.

Step 2 – Remove the Old Mirrors

Open both front doors and locate the screws holding the interior door covers in place. Remove the screws and then pop off the covers. Locate the mounts for the side view mirrors and remove the screws. You can then pop off the old mirrors. Disconnect the wires.

Step 3 – Install the Heated Side Mirrors

Connect the wires to the corresponding wires on the heated side mirrors with the wire caps. Mount the mirrors where the old ones were and replace the interior cover.
