    Remove the mirror - push the bottom inboard corner in, and then lever it form the upper outboard side. Be Careful as there are wires attached to the mirror so pop these off before you fully remove it

    Remove the connector pins from the plastic connector - you can do this by sliding a pin down the back edge of each connector pin to depress the tang, and then ease it out. write down their location on a bit of paper so you can assemble it again correctly... both sides are different

    Unscrew the mirror motor - be careful as the screws are made of steel cheese and you can mash the heads very easily

    Remove the motor form the housing and carefully feed the wires through the holes as you do

    Now the fum bit..

    Put the mirror on the ground (base plate lowermost), stand on it and pull/waggle the mirror housing for all you are worth and they will pop apart (quite suddenly).

    Once apart you'll see some more small screws which you can now undo - all the screws are different lengths, so remember which went where. Again these screw are shit quality, so i'd advise replacing them all before putting it all back together again
