Thanks again Sm1ke for introducing me to this mod. I received the indicator today and installed it in a little over a hour. The hardest part for me was actually not removing the mirror itself but the outer casing. Those tabs was on tight and every time I managed to loosen one as I moved onto the next tab it would snap back in. I found it easier to go in reverse order from E to A on your diagram. The E tab would stay popped out and actually creates a wedge on its own. From there the rest of tabs pops off quite easily. Overall a great mod that adds a cool touch to your ride.

Great to hear! And thanks for the feedback on the mirror cover. Turborascal did this mod on his CX-5 and did the exact same thing. I'll be sure to edit the original posts to add this tip.

I appreciate the feedback guys, helps to make an easy process even easier!

I am just wondering, are there any gaps with the new turn signals? Does it fit the housing exactly like the factory signal? I am worried if it rains that liquid would short the wires especially since I have the 360 camera.

Yes, it fits like OEM. No issues with rain or car washes. I've been through a bunch of touchless washes and washed the car myself with a 2000 PSI pressure washer, and the car has been in some heavy downpours. Both turn signals are working just as they did when first installed over a year ago.

Thank you so much. I've finished installing them on my CX-9 2018 and I'm very satisfied with the effect. A side note: you're gonna have a hard time detaching the mirrors if you have big fingers. Also, take the utmost care with those annoying clips. I was careful but apparently not enough, and snapped one clip on the right mirror cap. No big deal, though.
