Cool

wimdx,

Try doubling or tripling up on some dental floss, wear gloves to protect your fingers, and gently saw through the tape that is holding the wide angle mirrors to your side mirrors. Clean off the mirrors with some alcohol. This technique also works well if you want to remove the MDX emblem from the tailgate of your MDX. Good luck.

What EXCALIBUR said.

For more detailed information do a search for "removing MDX emblem". Shoud work the same for the mirror.

Yup use the dental floss deal, then use goo gone afterwards.

I'd suggest burning them off with acid.

In a hurry? This less subtle technique will remove those nasty wide angle mirrors permanently:

Perhaps that method would be more appropriate to get rid of the annoying disclaimer message.
