how 2 remove tow hooks and mirror light covers

Like it says guts didn't want to do two different threads so figured I would ask both at one time. So I have a 04 superduty the one row hook is starting to rust want to take off and put on new ones. Any help on how they come apart would be great. I also want to smoke my mirror light covers but do not know how they come off and don't want to break them. So any help with that would be great to. Thanks for any input or help.

On the mirrors i believe you have to turn them to the innermost position and there is a little latch behind the mirror that you can undo with a small screwdriver.

Re: how 2 remove tow hooks and mirror light covers

easiest to pull the front bumper off, if your truck is a leaf spring truck you won't be able to get the third bolt out from the bottom on the tow hooks...at least in my experience!

The tow hook bracket is also used to keep the spring hanger attached to the chassis. You will need to reuse the bolts that are removed.
