the master control on the drivers side pops right up with a gentle pry from a flatblade screwdriver. You can then pop out the mirror control and pop in the heated mirror control. There is also a #3 phillips screw behind that for door panel removal. the 2nd #3 phillips is located behind the little square under the armrest. then reach under the door panel at the bottom and pop out the door pops, then the door panel slides up off the window sil.
if you have tweeters they will have to be popped off first.
the mirror harness is up near the mirror, and the door is prewired for it.
3 screws hold the mirror on, remove, install, re-tighten the screws, hookup the harness, re-align and pop the door panel back on, 2 #3 screws, master control, and done.... 15min tops.... then the pass door is the same.
if you can dealwith unpainted mirrors, a company called keystone does auto crash parts and can get you unpainted ones new in the box for less than subaru OEM ones.
