How to remove 08 up mirror top covers?

How do you get the covers off the top of these mirrors? I have searched and searched. Some people say they dont come off others say just 2 tabs. I have failed to figure it out either way. I already have the PTM caps ready to go. Both of my mirrors are OEM. The drivers side has the chrome cap while the passenger is black. Thanks for help.

Best advice I have seen on here "If you cant afford to build it right you certainly cant afford to build it twice"

Yeah I haven't got a straight answer yet. I have heard the textured black mirrors are different and don't come off. And the fx4 and lariat With the chrome and color matched caps have 2 tabs. I'd like to know if the textured ones come off.

The textured covers do come off, but it's a little sketchy. I saw a post where someone showed the procedure and which wires to switch on one of the motors to make them work in the correct direction with the '07- controllers. I'll try to find it again.
