Re: Glass change

To be a pedant, cars haven't had wing mirrors for decades.
However to remove a DOOR mirror glass:- Find a spatula or wide scraper, stick it between glass & surround, then lever, GENTLY. Should just pop off, being ready to catch it, before the heating cables snap.

Re: Glass change

Yep, it's sort of a skeleton frame of a ball & socket, a gentle wiggle with the spatula & out the mirror pops.

They're expensive though I paid Renault 14 for (one) in the early 1990s

Albeit in the end it was worth it.
