Anyone know how to install the auto dimming side mirrors? Ordered at the dealership, out of stock. When it arrives, hoping to install it myself with not having to schedule, wait for appointments..

So I went through the install this weekend and took some photos for ya'll. It was pretty straight forward, using the above pdf. Side note, I thought it was odd that the passenger mirror was missing the spring clip.
Pretty easy. I think the screwdriver was used more to move the mirror completely up, than to actually remove it. I ended up using my fingers to pop the mirrors off. In the 3rd pic, you can see the plastic fingers and how it attaches to the white piece inside the side mirror assembly. It was more annoying to reattach them, as you had to line up everything and try not to pinch the orange/blue wires.
These things are great! In previous cars with only an auto-dimming rear view mirror, it was always annoying to have a glare-free rear view while simultaneously getting blinded by the side views reflecting a [insert pickup truck]'s blue headlights. Now that's all mitigated.how do you like the new mirror w/ approach lighting?
Autodimming is pretty nice. Now I'm not blinded by the side mirrors. Although I'm still not sure how I feel about the border around it (or the rearview, for that matter). But it works well enough.how do you like the new mirror w/ approach lighting?
so if I'm understanding this correctly all the existing wires are already there and available for the auto-dimming and approach lighting even if it did not come equipped? My Forester XT had the auto dimming and I;ve been spoiled, would love it back.
