2014 mirror cap and sharkfin removal
 
Hey folks want to do a couple small mods. I would like to remove my mirror caps and sharkfin antenna, paint or plastidip them, and reinstall. How do I remove these to 2 items? Are the caps held on with clips? I have no idea how that sharkfin is mounted, just tabs?

The antenna has a mounting retainer and tabs that must be accessed under the headliner. See page 9 of this doc: http://www.wk2jeeps.com/interior/201...emoval_001.pdf

Thanks for both your comments, and the helpful links. Don't know if I'll be removing the headliner though.

Has anyone actually replaced their mirror caps. I have replacements and am going through mopar steps to remove and replace but step 4 (taking off mirror insert) seems a little too vague. Is there a certain spot to put a flathead or are there any tips?? Thanks.

Any tips on removing the mirror insert???

Can you be pretty aggressive with it?
