Puddle lights

Hello, I noticed that my puddle light on the passenger side is looking as if it is now allowing spot of light through in addition to the C-HR outline. Does anyone know if it is just a sticker over the light projecter that makes the C-HR outline. Is there a way I can take the C-HR and just have it project the light?

I've seen this issue from a couple different owners on some other forums. Doesn't look like there is a replacement part for it as of yet, but the dealer will replace the mirrors under warranty. That cant be a cheap repair, so hopefully they come out with a cheaper solution, such as some sort of new film.

I would honestly just like them as solid lights rather than the logo

I suppose that's something you'd have to arrange with the dealer, as I don't think there is any way to get into the side mirrors. It seems to be a common problem, so let us know if you find a workaround.

Are the dealerships replacing the whole mirror unit to fix the problem or just a portion of it?

At this point in time it seems to be they are replacing the whole unit, which to me indicates that the film/insert isn't easy to get to. Not sure how its even getting damaged in the first place.

There is a little door or piece that fits around the little light that looks like you could pop it off on the bottom of the mirror. Im afraid to mess with it without knowing anything about it, but it looks like a small panel about an inch x inch with the hole where the light shines through. It looks like if you had a thin tool to slide in, you could pop this panel off from the bottom of the mirror.

There are videos online of puddle light installs/replacements, but none for the CH-R specifically. Some can be accessed from underneath and others involve removing the mirror insert. Not sure its worth playing around with seeing as how its powered. If it was as simple as opening that little compartment, you'd think they wouldn't be replacing whole units.
