Post DIY: Upgrade to outside heated mirrors

A comprehensive guide on how to remove and upgrade your existing unheated outside mirrors, found on LS, 2LS, 1LT and 1SS trim levels.

28 pages long, with pictures for each step showing how to completely disassemble the outside mirrors to their base components; to upgrade to heated from non-heated, or for replacement of broken parts.

If anyone has any questions not answered in this guide, just ask...

Thank you so much for this DIY!!! My Camaro is my daily driver and just as you mentioned I HAVE to use the side mirrors since the blind spots are huge. I appreciate this more than you know.

Warning: GM changed the BCM in 2012 and later years, so that heated mirrors (from 2LT or 2SS) can't be programmed to turn on in lower trim levels like they were in 2010-11.

2012 and up, have to run an aftermarket defroster circuit, and new wires into both doors to connect to the heating element wires in the mirror harnesses.

Without these extra parts, you will still have unheated mirrors.
