Hi, the clip is a circular wire with raised lugs on it ..... a bit like the wire that holds wheel trims on, except very much smaller and thinner.

If you put the mirror fully down you should just be able to see a bit of the clip (if you cant see it try the RHS/LHS/TOP)
.... push this away (back) with a very thin flat blade long screwdriver (8" would be ideal) this will release the clip and the mirror should pull away
... not too far before you undo the connector for the heating element.
The rest is pretty obvious.

Better luck this weekend.

i finally found the parts, bought from ebay , i have problem to find the pins thus i took out the whole mirror assembly. i found out that there is not way I can change the sensor without taking off the mirror. So taking out the mirror assembly is a waste of time. I enclosed short documentation on the process.
