You can't remove the lens. You will most-likely need to get a whole new unit.

You can pull out jus the glass, some one did it to mine in a carpark!! :evil:

Easiest way to do it i found was to just buy a whole new mirror. FTG sell them brand new for not too much.

I *think* ford sells just the lens itself, so you have to be able to take it out...

If its an EF/EL they are all power mirrors. The lense which is attatched to a plastic backing can be removed. You have to unclip the centre pivot point from the assembly itself by pulling from the outside of the mirror lense with some force but not twisting as the glass with break. The are 2 orange or yellow pin looking things that may pull out also, they are for the adjustment and simply push back in to assembly before fitting the new lense. The lense has a block at the rear which can be unclipped if needed.
My lense was smashed and got a second hand one from the wreckers for $10 but had to get it from a car with a broken assembly.
