Right Door Mirror and Holder

Step 15.1

Press the pin of the Right Side Mirror into the matching hole of the Mirror Holder, as shown.

This is just a press-fit and does not require any screws:

Steps 15.2-15.3

Remove the Mirror Sticker from the backing paper and apply it to the center of the Right Side Mirror.

Using a pair of tweezers here will really help get this nice and centered:

Step 15.4

Fit the tab of this Mirror Holder into the matching slot on top of the Right Door.

Be sure this mirror is facing the correct way, as shown:

Step 15.5

Secure the Mirror Holder to the Right Door from the inside with one (1) DS06 screw.

This is your friendly reminder to try using 3-in-One Oil on all screws going into metal:

Step 15.6

Fit the pin and post of the Right Door Handle into the matching holes on the Right Door, as shown:

Step 15.7

Secure the Right Door Handle to the Right Door from the inside with one (1) PS04 screw:

Thoughts


Like the other door, this one also has the chrome lock cylinder and lower stripes already pre-installed. Keep this assembly nearby as we will add more to it in the next kit.
