How to Install the CIPA Dual-View Clip-on Towing Mirror on a 2018 Subaru Forester


Speaker 1: Today, in our 2018 Subaru Forrester, we are going to be installing CIPA's dual view towing mirror, part number 11953-2 which comes in a quantity of two. If you just need a quantity of one, you can get that with part number 11953.So as you can see here, I'm perfectly visible in our factory mirror, but as I move towards the outside you lose vision of me in the factory mirror, but I can still be seen in our towing mirror. This is great when making lane changes on the highway or during parking maneuvers. It features two fully adjustable mirrors, one that is flat and one that is convex for additional viewing range.Now, while it is installed you are going to have some limited movement on your factory movement as it may contact the mounting locations. However, you will have most of the adjustment, so it shouldn't be too much of an issue. When installed the mirror does still fully breakaway so you don't have to worry about any scratches or abrasions in case it does happen to fold in.The adjustment knobs in the back will allow you to spread it wider or closer.

This can be useful for varying size mirrors to make sure you've got the tightest fit possible. The rubber straps located at the back are going to prevent any scratches or abrasions on the backside of your mirror. These mirrors fit perfectly on your Subaru Forrester, but if you have multiple vehicles and trailers, you can adjust it for your needs for every vehicle.You'll begin your installation by lining up the hooks on the top and bottom of your mirror between the housing and the glass. Then, take your straps, bring them up along the back side, and hook them into place. You do that for both straps.

If your straps don't fit properly, you could adjust them tighter or looser by simply moving the hook along the strap. The knobs in the back will allow you to adjust the width of it. Once you've got it set for your mirror, just go ahead and tighten down the knob. You will repeat the same process on the other side.And that completes our installation of CIPA's Dual View Towing Mirror on our 2018 Subaru Forrester.
