Hi all,

I want to change the wing mirror covers on my colorado red facelift ST to black, specifically piano black like on the RS as my grilles and front lip have been done in piano black. So a few questions:
  1. Will the Piano black covers from the RS fit on the ST?
  2. How do you remove the covers? I saw a pre-facelift thread where it was push down on the top and pull and they just come off, is that the same for the facelift?
Thanks.

i would doubt the mirror covers are different i will check on ecat tomorrow
Tom's right the facelift mirrors have the indicators along the plastic at the bottom, whereas pre-facelift has the indicators on the tip. Look @ the OP avatar then look at yours!!

To the OP, have you thought about getting some black vinyl and just applying it to your current mirror caps?? As long as it's black it'll be a good enough match as the Piano Black "paint" doesn't exist as the Piano black spoiler is actually made of a black plastic and not painted!

Covers are completely different design, due to the indicator shape for a start and how much smaller the pre-fl ones are compared to the facelift/RS ones.

Thanks all. As I said mines a facelift so it shouldn't be a problem.

I will do. Going to wrap the front lower front bumper so I'll check out doing the mirrors as well.
