You need to undo the instrument cluster to replace the lights. After undoing the screws and removing the trim cover be very careful unplugging connectors at the back. They are quite easy to break. Please refer to diagram below.
not too hard, behind the mirror on the inside there should be a triangular plastic cover, this will unclip with a little bit of levering with a screwdriver or flat blade.
once removed you should see a few holes in the door frame, in a few of those holes you will see at least 3 bolt heads, undo the bolts making sure you dont drop them inside the door cavity, there will also be a multi wire electric plug that you will have to seperate, the outside mirror can now be removed.
Dont try just replacing the glass as it involves almost destroying the whole mirror assembly, replace the complete mirror assembly
undo all covers to allow acess to shaft undo all bolts holding flex coupler 6mm allen key + 12mm spanner undo the gaurd the shaft goes through remove all bolts, lever rear coupler apart, push rear of shaft towards passenger side of car, slide shaft out, refitt in opposite order, certain models toyota tells you that whole shaft required, for about 3,000 dollars . after market couplers available from hardy spicer, shaft will have to be removed first to know if 12mm or 14mm dowel into end of shaft
