Re: Drivers side door mirror

I think he meant how to take the mirror glass off, not the entire mirror assembly

have a look here

There are a few variations of mirror glass, they all tend to have a circular plastic clip that grips the motorised center section with little clips (that like to break if forced hard enough) though the glass is likely to break first.
Some have built in heaters so have additional electrical connectors that feed into a heater element sandwiched between the mirror glass and the backing clip.

Best way to remove the glass is to use a bent peice of metal that can be slid in the gap and then gently pull it off by working around the sides to evenly release the clip.
Brute force will remove it, but dont be supprised if the glass breaks in half along with the backing clip falling apart.

have fun
