How to Install the CIPA Clip-on Towing Mirror on a 2016 BMW X5


Today, on our 2016 BMW X5, we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install the CIPA clip-on towing mirror, part number 7070. Now we're here at the back of the trailer. You can see you have plenty of visibility in your factory mirror, but if I step outside, you lose that visibility in your factory mirror and gain it in your tow mirror. This is going to help when passing or parking. Our mirror's going to be fully adjustable up and down, side to side, you can also turn it to give you a wider view. Now, you're going to have little ...

I'll call them feet . that are going to fit in between the mirror and the housing. They're just going to clip right over the side. You're going to have two on the top, two on the bottom. You still have full adjustability on your mirrors. You can fold your mirror completely in and it won't touch the body of the vehicle.

It's going to have rubber straps, so you don't have to worry about hurting the finish on your vehicle. They are going to be fully adjustable and make a snug fit for the towing mirror onto your factory mirror. Now, your straps are only going to cover up a small portion of your factory blinker in your mirror. These are sold in a quantity of one. If you'd like to pick one up for your passenger side, just use the same part number.

Now let's show you how to get these installed. What we're going to do is we're going to take these plastic tabs and we're going to fit them right on the mirror housing, like that. Take our rubber straps, we'll take that open end, we'll clip it on the hook on the top. Just adjust it till you get a nice, snug fit and you're ready to hit the road. That'll do it for the CIPA clip-on towing mirror, part number 7070 on our 2016 BMW X5.
