How exactly do you remove the cover behind the mirror to tap the power cables? Just yank it off? Making sure I don't break anything lol.

Yes, I just did this today, it just pulls off, I'll post pictures along with which wires to tap.

It's the harness on the passenger side, wire 1 (white) is positive and wire 3 (black) is ground.

It was much easier to pull out the mounting clip to see the connector straight on.

It came with zip ties to attach it to the existing mirror cable. I used a blendmount bracket attached to the mirror.

Did you use the 15" mirrortap? My blendmount came with the 10" and it's a bit short and I have to have it come out the side of the cover lol.
