Do you mean the glass or the entire mirror?

If it's the entire mirror then remove the door panel by popping off the interior pull handle cover. If you get down and look at the bottom of the rectangular pull handle you will see a seam. Pry the cover off with a small screw driver. Remove the two torx bit screws behind the cover. there is also a cover in the door handle pull pocket. Just pry up the cover and It will have a T25 torx bit under it.
Next around the door there are several push pin clips, push in on the center of the pin and pull the clip out.

Lastly the trim ring around the interior handle.. honestly you can use a 90 degree pick to pry it off, but usually I just pull up on the door panel until it pops off. ie. pull the bottom of the panel up towards the inside of the car.

That should be all the clips and screws, now pull straight up while holding the bottom of the panel out a little to clear the panel from the interior handle. you'll see that the top of the panel rides in the rubber seal on the door frame, it will be somewhat hard to separate, so don't break the panel.

Now the switches can be disconnected or just let the panel hang.

Now you'll see a 13mm nut that holds the mirror on and one electrical connector. remove and pull the mirror housing off. Reassemble in reverse order.

If it is just the glass then you just did a whole lot of reading for nothing.....
If it's just the glass don't do any of the above, Just push the glass in at the inside edge, like your adjusting the mirror to look back into the car. Push your fingers behind the glass and pull the glass sideways toward the outside of the car and back. it should pop off without to much effort. Now the motor will ratchet outwards when you pull the glass and the rear edge will release.

Place the new glass on the motor and reverse the procedure to reinstall.

Mount the inside edge first and push the glass down on the inside edge. now pull the glass out and sideways while pressing it onto the motor.

With any luck I've explained it in a way that makes sense.

SOURCE: Have new mirror, need to know how to replace the side mirror on a 2003 Volvo S80 TR6

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
