    and the type of LED that you will need is [​IMG]
    they are superflux leds...I got mine from ACCONTROLS the whole process takes about 2-3 hours, when you take your time....if it is something that you have done before then it should take about 1.5 hrs. I would have pics for reference but this was the first mod that I did to my car and forgot to take them.

    fyi, not exactly the type of led that's in there stock, as the stock leds are snapleds which are tackwelded into the assembly.

    after removal of the painted plastic mirror cover, you'll find yourself some screws, and then a plug to unplug.

    the turn signal asssembly itself will need to be CUT open, preferably with a dremel (yes.. this is NOT a simple bulb swap)

    after that, cut off the stock leds, and you have to be abrasive to the metal finish to expose some copper to allow for the new superflux leds to be soldered on.
