Thanks for the write up!
Is this the only way to remove the mirrors? I just knocked my drivers side mirror in a parking garage and need to replace it. Only the outer movable portion is damaged, not the whole assembly. Is there anyway to just remove/replace that portion?
Also the mirror itself is now loose in the mirror housing and I cant get it to snap back into place, its kinda just hanging there. Any tips on getting it lined back up so I can use it until I repair it?
