How to Install CIPA Towing Mirrors on a 2012 Ford F-150


Today, we're going to be installing the CIPA Custom Tow Mirror, part number 11801, on our 2012 Ford F-150. The CIPA Custom Towing Mirror will simply slide over your existing mirror to give you added vision for towing and extend your current mirror to 6 inches. The CIPA mirror is fully adjustable and it will not obstruct to your existing mirror. The casing is made up of a thicker plastic which makes them extremely durable and corrosion resistant. They also maintain the aerodynamic shape of your mirror to prevent wind noise or vibration. This mirror is for the driver's side.

The mirror does actually come with two different wedges depending on your vehicle's mirror. It also comes with a neoprene strip. The wedge will actually set here in the mirror and the neoprene strip will adhere to the wedge itself before installation. It's also a good idea to get your mirror head cleaned and waxed as the tow mirror does slide over the top of the mirror head itself and it can mar to finish. To install the mirror, we'll simply hold the wedge up to the mirror where it will sit and slide the piece over the top of the mirror head.

With it fitted on the mirror, we'll simply install the wing nut. With the wing nut tight, our mirror is installed and we're ready to move to the passenger's side. The passenger's side mirror, part number 11802 will install the same as the driver's side mirror. That completes our test fit of the CIPA Custom Tow Mirror, part number 11801, on our 2012 Ford F-150.
