Blind Spot Monitor Side Mirrors Change

I purchased the European Blind Spot w/DAP mirrors from Deutsche Auto Parts and am ready to install however I can't figure out how to unplug the blind spot monitor connections on the factory mirrors. I searched for a video and don't see anything so I am looking for some help in order to do this without messing it up.

Thanks in advance.

There is a little rubber gasket that holds the plug in place on the mirror side of the BLIS wire. Pry out with a small screwdriver and the the plug will come out easily behind it.

Thank you so much, I thought the rubber might be a silicone type seal and I would mess something up if I did it wrong, but after you posted I followed your instructions and it all went very smooth.

When I went to put the wires back in on mine, I couldn't remember the correct orientation, but I think that I remember a small embossed graphic on the back of the new mirror helped me remember if you get to that point.
