Default (17+) Anyone know how to remove the eyesight trim ?

Trying to do the auto dimming mirror upgrade and instruction aren't exactly lining up. I was able to get to the two 8mm screws but cant get the trim down. Not sure if I missed a screw or not pushing at the right locations for the clips but diagram from kit not lining up at all.


Update: figured it out, 17 eyesight trim is not one piece, dislodged sub-bracket holding dome light/starlink to main bracket. This exposed the wiring hardness, undid three connectors and main piece came out.

Hey OP,

Any chance you got anymore details on removing the eyesight trim? I'm trying to add the auto dimming mirror upgrade also. Trying to figure out the steps before the mirror gets here.

I just installed the auto-dimming mirror on a 19 Impreza with EyeSight. It was pretty straight forward. Here are the steps:

1. Pry off the small black trim with a plastic panel tool
2. Remove the 2 bolts with an 8mm socket (I used a 5/16 with no problem)
3. Pull down the plastic cover around the EyeSight Camera. Start on the front left side and just pull is down. Do the same on the front right side. Then pull down the rear portion plastic cover. The clips holding this piece in place all came out fairly easily without a lot of force. Then slide the whole assembly forward a bit and you have plenty of room to work with the wiring for the mirror.
4. I had small rattle after the install. I went back in and wrapped the mirror wiring with some foam insulation I had lying around (the kind used to seal a window or door) and that took care of the problem.

Here's a link to the install manual.
