New 2012 Unlimited Rubicon

I finally got my first jeep a couple months back. I am so happy with it and love driving it. I have a lot to learn with it and will enjoy it as I go along.

I do have a question I am hoping someone can help me with. I received mirror relocation brackets from the dealership so I can take my doors off and still drive legally. I have heated mirrors and cannot figure out how to get the mirror off off the door to relocate it to the body because there is a wire that connects from the door to the mirror. I asked the dealership about this and was told the wire detaches the same way the wires on the doors do when you take the doors off. I was told the piece of the wire that detaches is stuffed down in the door and I need to pull it out to disconnect the wire.

I am sure it is just me, but the wire between the mirror and the door is really tight and there isn't anyway I can figure to reach my hand inside the door to find the wire release. I think I am misunderstanding or maybe I wasn't provided the correct information? I am wondering if someone can tell me how to detach the heated mirrors from the doors so they can be re-attached to the body. The dealership said the brackets they provided me are meant to be used with the heated mirrors. (I am assuming just as mirrors and not as heated mirrors.)

Welcome! I'm not much help with the mirror problem, but I do know that many JK owners just use these:
Rugged Ridge Quick Release Mirrors, Black Powder Coat, Pair (Both Sides) 11025.10

I was curious on your question, so after some research, it looks to be the connector should be behind or under the dash, from pics. good luck and let us know what happens. This is a first.

The driver heated mirror is dk. blue/gray at the DDM (Driver Door Module), black plug, pin 4. The passenger heated mirror is lt. blue/white at the PDM (Passenger Door Module), black plug, pin 4. This may help also....

I did a little more investigation and asked the dealership the last time I was there. They said I have to take off the door panels and inside there is the connector. Sounds like too much of a hassle to me - I want something quick and simple. I'm going to purchase some extra mirrors to make it simple.
