I have a need / want to remove the side mirror. Specifically the LED cover on the bottom of the mirror. Has anyone done anything similar or have access to manuals and such?

TIA :D

Nice! I have been thinking of doing some kind of lights under the doors for when you open them up at night like what the mirrors and handles do

Since you said that I wonder if the module that controls the mirror lights can handle more load or if connecting them to the interior lights would be better.

Exactly! I was thinking of that. I don't think it would be a major increase in the load but never know. I wanted it to look clean and give off good light at night when the doors are open

The 12 volt LED tape only has a 1.5 watts per foot (also depends on manufacturer) so it wouldn't be a huge increase in draw. The question would be do you want them to come on while the door is closed or when it is opened?

I would like it to come on when the doors opens. Just so it lights up all around it.
