Well it is prett much notorious that the replica spoon mirrors have terrible visibility on the passenger side. When I got mine the glass was already installed on both sides and the passenger side was pointed straight at the ground. Needless to say I was used to having a mirror there so this sucked. I found a couple of threads saying to just break the mirror and loosen the base and have a new mirror cut. I didn't do this for a couple of reasons: (1) 7 years bad luck lol, (2) would have to get 2 new mirrors so the driver mirror would match, (3) didnt know where to get blue tinted mirrors, (4) the "objects in the mirror are closer than they appear" passenger side mirror projects images further back so you can see more and I wasnt sure a mirror shop would have this. Now. On to the pics. Use the tips if you want, or not .
I did this on my passenger side mirror
Step 1: Remove the mirror from the car (3 phillips screws inside the sail panel)
Step 2: Remove the mirror housing from the base (3 phillips screws on the inside of the base)
Step 3: Heat up the housing by blowing air through the screw holes that hold it to the base and through the front of the mirror using a blow dryer or a heat gun, this will loosen up the adhesive.
Step 4: Use an old credit card or club card (I used my Albertson's preferred card) of some sort (that you don't care if it gets messed up - the side mirrors are sharp and will tear the card up) and gently pry away the old mirror making sure that the mirror is constantly warm so the adhesive is still pliable. Take your time so the mirror wont break. (I used floss at first in rememberance of my old days as a ricer taking off my stock emblems to put on colored once, don't act like you didn't do that ish too)
Step 5: Now that you have the mirror off, seperate the adhesive base from the mounting base by prying off the four sets of two teeth that hold them on each other
Step 6: Unscrew the 3 tiny phillips screws that hold on the mirror pivoting base and take it out
Step 7: Loosen the screw on top of the spring enough for it to move freely yet tight enough to support the mirror glass
Step 8: Put the pivoting mount back in (3 phillips screws)
Step 9: Put the adhesive mount back on the pivoting mount (4 snaps)
Step 10: Attach mirror housing to mirror base (3 phillips screws)
Step 11: Cover the mount with saran wrap as well as the back of the mirror so you can test fit it without them sticking to each other
Step 12: Mount the mirror housing and base on the car
Step 13: Rotate the pivoting base and adhesive to your liking
Step 14: Take scotch tape or any other tape that will support the mirror glass and tape it into the housing resting saran wrap against saran wrap (make sure the mirror doesnt fall)
Step 15: Sit in the driver seat and adjust it to your liking, once you have it adjusted, take off the saran wrap from both items (adhesive mount and back of mirror which as double sided tape on it) and mount the mirror on there.
Step 16: Take off the whole mirror assembly and heat it up to make the adhesive cure to each other again, or leave it out in the sun!
Step 17: Enjoy full visibility!
I know there seems like a lot of redundant steps but this is exactly what I did and it cost me nothing. I know there are gonna be haters that are going to say why didn't you spend the money and just get real spoon mirrors so you wouldn't have to do all that work. To that I say, I used the extra 300 bucks I saved (I only spent 25 bucks on these mirrors), to buy an intercooler, turbo timer, and exhaust for my upcoming turbo set up. Cheers
