They are not hard to install at all, you talking about the Thunderbolt mirrors? Just have to route the wire through the boot in the door, remove the door panel and mirror to install the new one and wire it up. I would think they would fit on your mirror as they are any different than the newer gens, could be wrong.

The Thunderbolt mirrors are just the glass inserts and are made for 2002+ power mirrors. Even though they look the same externally, the earlier power mirrors have a completely different motor and platform arrangement. The 2002+ inserts will not fit the 2001-back mirrors.
