This bulletin involves a discussion regarding new removal procedure when replacing the mirror glass on a trailer tow mirror.

NOTE: This bulletin applies to vehicles equipped with trailer tow mirrors (sales codes GPD or GPG) built after April 16, 2007 (MDH 0416XX), and for any vehicle where service replacement of the mirror glass is required.

The trailer towing mirror assembly has a replaceable mirror glass. As part of the replaceable mirror glass, a locking tab has been added to the plastic backing on the mirror glass. This change has been made to vehicles that are built after April 16, 2007. This change is also being incorporated in service replacement mirror glass.

The process of installing mirror glass with the new locking tab has not changed.

The removal process for mirror glass with the new locking tab has changed. The mirror glass will require depressing the plastic locking tab.
1.      Use a long stem flat blade screwdriver or suitable trim stick.
2. Tilt the mirror glass inboard.
3. From the outboard side of the mirror housing, slide a trim stick or flat blade screwdriver behind the mirror glass (Fig. 1).
4. Depress the mirror glass plastic locking tab (Fig. 2).
5. While depressing the locking tab, slide the mirror glass toward the inboard side of the mirror housing and off the mirror housing adapter attaching points.
