Default How-To Mirror signal lense removal

Several times a year it seems someone asks about how to replace the bulb or breaks the lense while attempting to remove it. I looked but don't see a how to on it. Here goes. If its already been done, I apologize.

Fold the mirror FORWARD.


Locate the torx screw underneath securing the lense to the mirror housing. It's a T10 torx.
Forgive the iPhone pic


You can see in this pic the way the tabs are oriented. You can pull down the rear side of the lense and push it forward to remove.


The bulb mount is rubber and twists out.

If you want to be OCD like me you can disassemble the lense and wash it out. They get nasty inside
With a small flat screwdriver you can pry the two apart. This little black nub is all that holds them together.

The black piece slides out.
