You need to remove the door panel. there are 2 t-25 screws behind the pull handle (some models do have only one screw) as well as you must remove about 9 push buttons. then the door panel will pull away from the door itself then you can get to the mirror switch

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

By the sound of it, it's the power for the remote mirror to change dim when a car from behind aproaches with lights on. Check with the dealer to be certain.

Testimonial: "Great, thanks - just what I needed to know. Congrats on replying so quickly too. Will use you site again if any further queries."
The electronics in the mirrors also control the door-locking/key fob system and the interior lights. They have unique serial numbers that will only work on the original car. Two choices:
Buy a new mirror from a Volvo dealer ($700 - $1000 installed)
Buy a used mirror; and either replace it's electronics with yours, or replace your glass with the used glass.
