you should only have to remove the plastic cover at the front of the window directly behind the mirror. It should only be held in place by a few little plastic clips which are part of the cover.
Once the cover is of you should be able to see the bolts that hold the mirror to the door, if you have electric mirrors there should be a little connector plug around there that you unplug to remove the mirror
Hope this helps

If you are facing the passenger side mirror adjust the top (large) mirror so that it is turning in towards the truck as far as it will go. Then look behind the mirror in the bottom righthand corner (outside bottom corner) and you will see a silver metal clip. Take a straight head screw driver and push on that clip and the lens will pop out. Then you simply unscrew the bulb holder from the lens and replace your bulb. Good luck!

You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Disconnect the wires / cables connecting the mirror to the controller and then you can remove the bolts holding the mirror onto the door and it'll just pop out...I've never tried to take apart the mirror itself because the clips holding the backing in the housing seem to break easily

Testimonial: " A great service for us novice repairmen. I got a complete answer in a matter of minutes. I will certainly use this service again."
On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door
