I have a P2 V70 and would like to have all black side view mirrors. I plan on going to the junkyard and snagging some black mirror covers off of a P2 XC70. This will fit, correct? And as far as I understand, they should just pop off? Or do P2's require the mirror glass to be removed first?

Thanks.

I'm not sure, but I THINK the XCs all have the same mirror - that is, larger than the V70s. I'd do the trip if it's not to far off, but bring a measuring tape or a photo, you'll see the difference quick enough.

XCs are vastly larger, no covers and all black except for 2007s which are body colored and have repeater turn signals in the mirrors
Regular mirrors are smaller, the covers snap off and are interchangeable

Thanks. So what would be the best route for me to take from here?

Here is how 4-5 coats look:



The mirrors pop off from the outermost corner, then around the top. Use a nylon pry tool or a thin blade to pry the corner, then use your fingers to pop the rest off.
