Extended View™ Instructions



Installation

Blind Spot Mirror Inspection

Upon removing your NXTGEN Extended View™ blind spot mirrors from the package, you may see what some customers initially think are chips, scratches or defects in the glass. We hand assemble and inspect each mirror set prior to packaging and shipping, to ensure they meet our high quality standards. The glass is secured into the injection molded bases using a pliable liquid adhesive. Despite curing the adhesive prior to packing, conditions during shipping may cause some of the pliable adhesive to seep out onto the glass. 99% of the time these ‘defects’ are simply adhesive, and will quickly and easily come off with rubbing alcohol. If your mirrors were damaged during shipment, please contact our team for assistance.


Surface Preparation

Prior to installing your Extended View™ Blind Spot Mirrors, it is important to prepare your sideview mirrors by throughly cleaning and drying them. It is recommended to use either 70% or 91% isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol, which will remove all contaminates and residues. This surface preparation will promote the best possible adhesion between the 3M adhesive and your factory sideview mirrors.


For best results, it is recommended to install the Extended View™ mirrors at a minimum ambient temperature range between 65 and 95 degrees Fahrenheit. If the ambient temperature is below this range, it is recommended to warm your factory sideview mirrors with a hair dryer prior to installation. If installing in a warm environment, you may skip this step.


Test Fitting

Our custom fit Extended View™ Blind Spot Mirrors are designed to closely contour your factory mirrors for a truer fit, and our multi-angular universal mirrors provide various fitment options. Prior to removing the adhesive backing and installing, it is recommended to test fit exactly where you wish to place your mirrors.


Installing 

Now that the surface has been prepared and you have test fit the blind spot mirrors, it is time for installation. Remove the adhesive backing and carefully align along the factory mirror contour, then press it in place.


Setting The Adhesive 

A critical step in the installation process is to set the adhesive between the mirrors. In order to achieve this, simply heat each blind spot mirror for 1-2 minutes per side. We recommend using a hair dryer on high in order to heat the area up without it getting too hot from a heat gun. Be sure to evenly heat the areas around the top, bottom and sides.

Once the adhesive has been heated, use a microfiber rag or soft terrycloth towel to massage the blind spot mirrors to your factory mirrors. Use caution as the mirrors may be hot to the touch. It is recommended to massage the blind spot mirrors onto your factory mirrors after heating for about 30 seconds per side.

By heating the adhesive and then massaging the blind spot mirrors to your factory mirrors, a permanent bond has been created until you wish to remove. If this step is skipped, the blind spot mirrors are likely to fall off shortly after installation, as they have not been properly set. 



Removing Extended View™ Mirrors 


Once your Extended View™ Blind Spot Mirrors have been properly set, they are intended to last indefinitely. Should you ever wish to remove them, the process is very simple and takes only a few minutes. Start by carefully positioning  dental floss or fishing line behind one of the corners. Then pull the line side to side behind the blind spot mirror, separating the adhesive bond between them and your factory mirrors.


Once the blind spot mirrors have been removed, some adhesive is likely to remain attached to your factory mirrors. It is recommended to wipe this remaining adhesive with rubbing alcohol, Goo Gone or WD-40 and let it sit for a few minutes.

Then you may either peel the remaining adhesive off or carefully scrape it away with a razor blade.

Clean your factory mirrors one final time after removing the remaining adhesive with either glass cleaner or rubbing alcohol and your sideview mirrors will be restored to like-new condition.

This allows the full range of movement within the factory mirror housing. Due to Tesla build inconsistencies, typical fitment as designed may be slightly impacted on some vehicles. These Tesla build inconsistencies are beyond our control and we appreciate your understanding.

Universal Fit F0400

The unique angular design of our Extended View™ universal fit model F0400 is intended to better fit more factory mirror types versus the more traditional round, oval or elliptical shape build spot mirrors. Model F0400 may very closely or perfectly contour some factory mirrors, but is not intended to be a custom fit product. For optimal visibility it is recommended to place Extended View™ mirrors on the upper or lower outermost conners of your factory mirrors.
