I've removed a few of them, and basically there's 3 screws that have to be undone from inside the door. You need to remove that little plastic triangle trim piece above the door trim, and possibly the door trim as well, can't quite remember.

Then, just slowly pull the mirror away from the body. It is stuck on with glue or something so you will need to use a bit of force.

Once you do that, just pull it out about 20cms or so, and the wiring plug should come out from inside the door - just unplug and your done.

It's really easy, and all up should only take 5-10 minutes.

Ahhhh, ok sorry! I reckon it'd be just as cheap and easy to get a whole new mirror anyway though (unless it needs to be painted, in which case it shouldn't be too hard to find one in the right colour anyway!).

I don't think I've ever come across a wrecker willing to seperate the mirror/glass from the rest of the mirror body - one is pretty much un sellable without the other to them.
