Default How to remove side mirror cover

I am thinking of wrapping my side mirrors with carbon fiber film and wanted to know if the side cover panel just pops off some clips at the mirror base at the red line below or is it held in place by some other fasteners under the mirror itself?

Hi Vector,
Please find attached the removal procedure for the mirror covers.

You will have to remove the glass first in order to access the inside of the cover.

Hope this helps.

So the glass just pushes out towards the outside to remove? I had seen this procedure written up before but it is not really clear how the glass releases from the backing.

Hi Vector,
The glass clips into the motor assembly.

By holding the inward side of the glass whilst gently pulling at the outward side, you are, in effect, levering the glass away from yhe motor assembly.

Hope this helps.
