Re: I need to replace the mirror glass on a 1994 camry...
Start with a good thick pair of leather gloves, a putty knife, and a tall trash can. Place the trash can below the mirror, tilt the mirror inward so you get a hold of the outer edge, and carefully pry the remaining pieces of mirror from the backing plate. Do not apply any pressure directly to the backing plate, or you may damage the gears on the electric motor. You should be able to pick up a new mirror and adhesive at your local auto parts store. Use masking tape and a couple of wood blocks to hold the glass in place while the adhesive sets (blocks against the glass, then wrap the whole thing in tape).

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
You do need to pull the door panel off, as the wire from the mirror is plugged into the door harness under the middle of the door panel. The tringular plastic panel just pulls off, start at the top. There is no difference Japan vs USA production. The mirror is held on by 3 10 mm bolts behind the triangular plastic panel.
Hope this helps. The graciousness of a FixYa rating for my solution would be greatly appreciated.
