Hi byucar,

You can remove the mirror and mirror holder (the plastic part that holds the glass) by adjusting the mirror fully inward, then inserting a long thin screwdriver between the mirror holder and the actuator (the part that the mirror holder is attached to). Twist the screwdriver to pop the mirror holder from the actuator. To install the new mirror and holder, connect the defogger electrical connectors (if equipped) and push the holder onto the actuator until the clips engage.

Hope this helps ,and thanks for your interest in Haynes manuals!
